Box Office Report For July 19-21


Welcome back one and all to the weekly box office report! As always, each and every Sunday you can expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, the newest Disney remaking of an animated classic opened in The Lion King, poised to dominate the competition, perhaps even with a history making haul. Plus, was this the weekend where Avengers: Endgame finally passed Avatar to become the worldwide box office champion? Spoiler alert: it did. How did all of the other titles do, you might ask? Let us take a look right now at just that…

Taking the top spot this week, with immense ease, is The Lion King. In fact, the estimated $185 million was good enough to make this the biggest opening weekend in history for the month of July. Setting that record is the good start for the Disney remake, which should dominate the box office, among family offerings at least, for a solid bit of time.

Falling to number two was last week’s champ, the Marvel flick Spider-Man: Far From Home. $21 million more was added to its coffers, which actually brings the MCU offering to nearly $1 billion globally. Suffice it to say, Disney is having an excellent time today, as you’ll see more about below.

At last, Avengers: Endgame passed Avatar. At San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Feige announced that the MCU flagship title finally became the biggest film of all time. Another almost $1.2 million got it over the hump, with $2.79 billion to date. The run in theaters is almost over, so it can now have the all time title on its mantle before doing so. Congrats.

Making big expansions were The Art of Self-Defense and The Farewell. Both made over $1 million and could see some more money come their way in the weeks to come. The former did so in pseudo wide release, while the latter did so while still early on its platform one, so expect plenty more there for the movie.

Among other indie/limited release titles, David Crosby: Remember My Name opened to 41K from four screens, while A Faithful Man made only a little over 7K on a single screen…
