Today the Weekend Estimates came in and Wonder Woman, the recent dc extended universe hit opened to $100.5M in it’s opening weekend, only the third film this year to open above the $100M mark (beauty and the beast, guardian’s of the galaxy vol.2).
so, wonder woman became only the third film this year to open above $100M, and worldwide it opened to $223M. since my predictions relied on wonder woman opening to around $93M. let’s say best case scenario, which i also think is most likely, it’s opening will be around 41% of it, which would mean it’s domestic run will be around $245M. Now we have a domestic figure, we need to work out the ratio. i think it will be around 36/64. that would be around $470m internationally, so a very impressive $715M worldwide.
in second place is captain underpants: the first epic movie which opened to $23.5M domestically. that is slightly below what i was expecting ($26m) but is still a good result, an even better result for cars 3, which was worried that captain underpants would take the market away from it. it’s domestic run should be around the $60-65M mark and internationally it should make around $220M.
in third place is memorial weekend winner pirates of the caribbean 5, dropping a massive 66% and taking in just $21.6M. It’s domestic total is now just up to $114M and doesn’t look to get much better, considering my prediction of $25M for it’s second weekend. in fourth place is guardian’s of the galaxy vol.2, which is now at $816M worldwide. it dropped 53% to make $9.7M, taking it’s domestic cume up to $356M.
baywatch dropped 54% to make $8.5m to take it’s cume up to $42M. behind baywatch follows alien: covenant, everything everything, snatched, diary of a wimpy kid and king arthur: the legend of the sword rounding out the top 10.
next weekend looks to be very interesting, with the mummy tracking for a $40M debut, and wonder woman looking to drop around 60%, that would mean both would open to $40M. so close! see you next week!
