‘Solo’ Heading For Mediocre $110-120M Memorial Weekend

While Disney’s Solo: A Star Wars Story is coming in $15.5M shy of its low-end $130M forecast with an estimated 4-day figure of $114.5M, the overall holiday stretch is booming with an estimated $226.5M, +25% over last year’s $181.4M, not to mention it’s the best Memorial Day weekend since 2014 when X-Men: Days of Future Past ruled with $110.5M. Solo‘s…

‘Solo’ Heading For $160-170M 4-Day Opening

The blockbuster-packed Summer 2018 continues this weekend with Ron Howard’s Solo: A Star Wars Story debuting in over 4,200 theatres. It will be interesting to see how Deadpool 2 and Avengers: Infinity War are able to cope with the new competition. Taking the top spot will be Solo: A Star Wars Story. It has been a rocky road, but the film is…

Can ‘Infinity War’ Pass $2BN?

This will be the final time I talk about the box office of Avengers: Infinity War solely, and to answer the titular question, Yes, it probably will, but not with a  lot of wiggle room. This weekend Avengers: Infinity War hit $1.82BN worldwide as it continues to set new records. In China it dropped an expected 72% in its second…

‘Deadpool 2’ Takes Great $125M Three-Day

After much anticipation, Deadpool 2 arrived in theatres worldwide this weekend. Many hoped the R-Rated sequel was going to top the original’s opening weekend of $132M, even maybe touching $140M, but we all knew that that was going to be hard. $125M is a great result for Fox, and $301M worldwide sets the film up for…

‘Deadpool 2’ Now At $135M Opening Weekend

Fox’s Deadpool 2 is looking like it will just be ahead of the original’s $132M opening weekend, but only just. Taking a awesome $18.6M in previews and $52M Friday, giving it a opening three-day definitely above $130M. Now this isn’t a terrible result, a opening weekend below $140M despite the hope for the film; but remember, sequel…

‘Mission Impossible: Fallout’ Will Smash The Summer Slump

Today Parmount debuted the official trailer for Mission Impossible: Fallout starring Tom Cruise and Henry Cavill, and to sum it up, it is truly awesome. I have to say this does look like the best film/the culmination of the franchise, and the two trailers have had a slightly darker tone, giving it the gritty tone that of John…

‘Deadpool 2’ To Dethrone ‘Infinity War’ With $140M+ Opening

This weekend we will see Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War finally be dethroned at the top of the box office after three weeks of ruling. Replacing Thanos at the top spot is…well… Thanos, but this time as Cable in the highly anticipated Deadpool 2.  Looking to take the top spot is Deadpool 2, the highly awesome sequel starring Josh Brolin and Ryan…

‘Infinity War’ Can Hit $2BN; But It’s Down To China

With $1.6BN in just sixteen days, Avengers: Infinity War has become the fifth highest grossing film of all time already, and the highest grossing film ever in the MCU. There are only a few question Infinity War has left to answer in the box office, and one of them is whether it can cross $2BN worldwide. As the biggest…

‘Infinity War’ Heading For $62M Third Weekend

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is currently going to drop 47%in its third weekend to take a great $61M third weekend. This pushes its domestic gross close to $550M, and worldwide thanks to China we’re looking at a worldwide cume north of $1.55BN, possibly hitting $1.6BN when the actual figures come in. Taking the top spot is Infinity War for…

‘Infinity War’ Heading For $200M+ Opening Weekend In China? – 400th Post

FRIDAY AFTERNOON UPDATE: Avengers: Infinity War is off to a great start in China, taking a $71M Friday. This is currently +/-$4M (depending on FX) off The Fate Of The Furious. The Fast and Furious films play to a wider demographic in China than the MCU flicks, and word-of-mouth is allegedly decent without being stupendous. We could still see a $200 million+ weekend…

‘Jurassic World 2’ Is Now The Underdog Of Summer 2018

Avengers: Infinity War is a hit. No Question. It could hit $2BN worldwide if China is huge. Deadpool 2 is tracking for a $150M opening weekend, Solo is at a $175M four-day, and I believe it is impossible for all of the blockbusters to be huge successes. Now my magnifying glass turns to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.  The previous film, Jurassic World, opening…

‘Infinity War’ To Hit $1.5BN This Weekend

This weekend will mark the final day of Avengers: Infinity War‘s rule of the box office. After three weekends (including the upcoming one) the Marvel epic will have to settle for second place behind Fox’s release of Deadpool 2. That doesn’t mean that Infinity War won’t make a lot after the release of Fox’s answer to The…
