Thursday Night Previews: Solo’s $14.1 million Starts is Fastest for Memorial Day Weekend

May 25th, 2018

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story has already broken a record earning $14.1 million during its previews, which is nearly $1 million ahead of the previous record for Memorial Day long weekend. That record was $13.2 million held by At World’s End, which also holds the records for three-day and four-day Memorial Day weekends. Solo also earned better reviews, but At World’s End opened over a decade ago, so its previews are not a good comparison. Last year, Dead Men Tell No Tales started with $5.5 million, while the year before that, Apocalypse opened with $8.2 million. Even if we use the lower multiplier, this still puts Solo on pace for $113 million / $137 million. That’s close to the records for Memorial Day, which seems a bit bullish. We will have a better idea once Friday’s estimates are in. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Now and Then

May 25th, 2018

First Reformed

It is a slow week, both in terms of total releases and in terms of quality releases. The Gospel According to Andre and Summer 1993 are both earning great reviews, but will likely be relegated to the art house circuit. The film with the best chance of box office success is Who We Are Now, but even then it has an uphill battle. More...

Weekend Predictions: Will the Latest Star Wars Release Open Solo or So High?

May 24th, 2018

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Memorial Day long weekend is usually a great weekend to open a big release. However, this year, Solo: A Star Wars Story is the wide release of the weekend. It will obviously open in first place, but how will it compare to the recent releases in the Star Wars franchise? Deadpool 2 will have no trouble earning second place and could by the end of the weekend be in the black. (It depends heavily on how much it cost to advertise, but I think its combined budget is around $200 million.) The only other film expected to make a dent at the box office is Avengers: Infinity War, which has already earned $600 million domestically. This weekend last year, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opened in first place with $62.98 million / $78.48 million. There are some who think Solo will double that. I’m not that bullish, but I do think Solo will lead 2018 to an easy win in the year-over-year competition. More...

Theater Averages: Out of This World

May 23rd, 2018

Deadpool 2

The re-release of 2001: A Space Odyssey topped the theater average chart by a huge margin earning just over $200,000 in four theaters for an average of $50,690. The overall box office leader, Deadpool 2, was next with an average of $28,859 in over 4,000 theaters. First Reformed was right behind with an average of $24,391 in just 4 theaters. More...

International Box Office: Deadpool Piles Up $300 million in Cash

May 23rd, 2018

Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2 dominated the international box office with $174.9 million on 25,091 screens in 82 markets, for a worldwide opening of $300.4 million. The studio’s share of this opening weekend is close to $140 million, which is significantly more than the film’s $110 million production budget. The film’s biggest market was the U.K., where it earned $17.48 million in 636 theaters. In South Korea, the film earned $11.84 million on 1,576 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $16.73 million. Russia wasn’t far behind, with $11.61 million on 1,477 and it cracked $10 million in Australia, if you include previews, as it pulled in $9.48 million on 602 screens for a total opening of $11.45 million. The film has yet to open in Japan, but there’s no rational way this film won’t break even before it reaches the home market. More...

Early Man

Black Panther came out on DVD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, or 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack last weekend and it is still scaring away a lot of the competition. That’s not to say there are no new releases that are worth picking up. In fact, A Fantastic Woman, I Kill Giants, and Early Man are all contenders for Pick of the Week. In the end, that title went to Early Man on Blu-ray. More...
