According to Friday’s news, nothing “old” made more than $1 million. Sony’s Bullet train earned another $865,000 (-22%) in its sixth Friday, passing $90 million domestically. We’re looking at a $3.1M (-46%) weekend and a $92M 38-day total. It should still index to $100 million domestically by the end, though Sony’s next big (A female kingwhich is very good) opens next week. Top Gun: Maverick earned $845,000 (-24%) on Friday for a likely $2.95M (-51%) weekend and a new domestic cume of $705.4M. The relatively steep drop is mostly due to the holiday weekend, and compared to its (and other stops) momentum on National Film Day. Let’s see if next weekend’s holding returns to normal in Tom Cruise’s mega hit.
Sony’s Call earned $700,000 (-34%) on Friday for a likely $2.4 million (-51%) weekend and $18.6 million over 17 days. Given the low profile and low ($10 million) budget of this genre Dracula flick, well, I’m impressed it’s still legging out. Warner Bros. Discovery’s DC League of Super Pets earned another $500,000 (-32%) on Friday for a likely $2.16M (-57%) weekend and $84.8M domestic cume. Still the only big kid-friendly family flick between now and (hopefully) Sony Lyle Lyle the crocodile in early October, well, that too benefits from a barren marketplace. Universal’s Beast debuted on PVOD yesterday while earning $460,000 (-40%) in theaters. We’re expecting a $1.68M (-58%) weekend and $29.25M domestic haul for the $36M Idris Elba vs. The Lion thriller.
Universal’s Minions: The Rise of Gru it should cross $900M worldwide sometime this weekend as it earns another $1.45M (-59%) from a new $362M domestic take. Sony’s Where the Crawdads Sing earning around $1.28M (-38%) over the weekend for a domestic total of $87.67M. Spider-Man: No Way Home turned out to be a one-weekend wonder. It dropped 76% on Friday to earn $540,000 for a likely $1.21M (-78%) weekend. It’s a tough break for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker, as the MCU flick has now only earned $813.26 million domestically. Shame. Hey, at least Jared Leto’s Morbius is currently the most watched movie on Netflix, which is saying something… I guess? All kidding aside, that means Sony’s first pay-TV deal with Netflix is paying off for both sides of the deal.
Thor: Love and Thunder debuts on Disney+ on Thursday and earns another $960,000 (-64%) over the weekend for a $342 million domestic cume. No earning $800,000 (-54%) over the weekend for a $122 million domestic cume. At the beginning of the summer I argued about it No may exceed domestically Lightyear, Minions: The Rise of Gru and Top Gun: Maverick. One out of three ain’t bad! Dragon Ball Super: Superhero drops 69% this weekend for a $750,000 gross and $36.6 million. Jaw down 83% on Friday at $150,000. That’s $530,000 for the weekend (-80%) and a shameful $271.6M lifetime (just $1.2B adjusted for inflation). Steven Spielberg hopes so Fabelmans kicks ass at tonight’s Toronto premiere. Elvis surpass $150 million domestically today because sometimes we deserve nice things.
