Movie News Weekly Box Office Work-Ups

Box Office: ‘Spider-Man’ Hangs In At No. One, New Releases Debut As Expected

To nobody’s surprise, Spider-Man: Far From Home hung onto the top spot in its second weekend (read my review here). The Marvel Studio production is estimated to have dropped -51% over the three-day frame, webbing up an additional $45.3 million for Sony. Its domestic cume currently sits just shy of $275 million. Internationally, the film scored $100 million to become the highest-grossing Spider-Man film to date. That brings which the worldwide haul for Far From Home just shy of $850 million.

Toy Story 4 was the weekend’s runner-up for the second frame in a row (review here). The film took in an estimated $20.66 million, dropping -39% from last weekend. Domestically, the film is sitting pretty at $346 million. That makes it the fifth-largest Pixar film of all-time in North America heading into its fourth weekend.

Overseas, Toy Story 4 added $48.1 million, bringing its global total topping $771 million. What’s more impressive is the film has yet to open in some major markets, including Germany, where it will release on August 15.

Coming in at number three is Paramount Pictures’ R-rated horror flick Crawl (check out my review here), which gobbled up an estimated $12 million in its first three days. That tops comp. title 47 Meters Down which debuted to $11.2 million and finished with over $44 million and has a sequel hitting theaters next month. What’s more exciting for Paramount is that Crawl received a “B” CinemaScore, which is much more favorable than the “C” earned by 47 Meters Down. That suggests the survival thriller could have even longer legs than its fin-based companion.

Pulling up at number four is the weekend’s second new title, the Disney-released and Fox-produced action comedy Stuber (read my full thoughts here). The film opened with an estimated $8 million. Like it’s fellow newbie, Stuber scores a “B” CinemaScore.

Internationally, the movie debuted in nine markets and picked up an estimated $3 million. That brings the first worldwide frame for Stuber to an estimated $11 million. Yikes.

Round out the top five for this weekend was Universal’s Beatles-based romantic comedy Yesterday, (see my full review here) which earned an estimated $6.75 and dipped just -33% going into its third weekend. Domestically, the film stands at about $48.3 million. It also took in an additional $7.8 million overseas for a global take of $80.5 million.
