Monday Update:


Millions of people checked into the “hotel” this weekend, as Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation won the box office weekend with $44.0 million.


Sony’s animated sequel debuted similarly to the $42.5 million and $48.4 million openings of the franchise’s previous two installments.



Last weekend’s leader, Disney’s superhero sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp, fell to runner-up with $29.0 million. The  second-weekend drop of 62 percent was steeper than the original Ant-Man‘s 56 percent fall.


Skyscraper, which had been widely projected to start in second place, instead started in third with $24.9 million. Universal’s Dwayne Johnson-led action thriller opened 30 percent behind Johnson’s April release Rampage.


Documentaries continue their surprisingly strong run this summer, with two documentaries exceeding seven figures this weekend. Focus Features’ Won’t You Be My Neighbor? came in 11th place with $1.9 million, after spending the preceding three weekends in the top 10. Neon’s Three Identical Strangers improved to 13th place with $1.2 million, following a theater count expansion.


A24’s coming-of-age Eighth Grade started with the year’s highest per-theater average on an opening weekend so far, earning $263 thousand from only four theaters in NYC and LA. That’s a per-theater average of $65,949 — higher than the year’s previous leader, March’s Isle of Dogs, which opened with an average of $60,011.


Comparisons


Total box office this weekend was $165.6 million. That’s 12.1 percent behind last weekend, but 1.4 percent ahead of this same weekend last year, when War for the Planet of the Apes opened with $56.2 million.


Year-to-date box office stands at $6.81 billion. That’s 8.8 percent ahead of this date last year.


Our full table of weekend actuals is below, after our Sunday update containing fuller analysis.



Sunday Update:


Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation beat out Skyscraper for the top slot at the box office this weekend, reiterating the commercial strength of Sony Animation’s premier animated franchise. Meanwhile, Ant-Man and the Wasp‘s sophomore frame was strong enough to hold off the Dwayne Johnson action film in second place.


Hotel Transylvania continued to draw blood at the box office, with the third installment in the franchise taking in an estimated $44.1M in its debut frame and continuing the series’ streak of $40 million-plus openings. That total doesn’t include the $1.27 million made by the threequel last Saturday, when several exclusive screenings for Amazon Prime members were held in approximately 1,000 theaters. This weekend, the film played in 4,267 locations, by far the widest release ever for the series.  It’s worth noting that this is the first entry in the franchise to debut during the summer months, as Hotel Transylvania 1 and 2 both dropped in September with opening weekends of $42.5 million and $48.4 million, respectively.


Impressively, HT3 did well despite the continued strength of the record-breaking Incredibles 2 in the marketplace. While it couldn’t quite nudge its way into “Fresh” territory on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s the best-reviewed entry in the series so far, and its “A-” Cinemascore suggests it will benefit from positive word-of-mouth in the coming weeks. The first two films had strong legs, neither falling more than 40 percent weekend-to-weekend over their first several weeks of release. Luckily, HT3 has a two-week breathing period before the release of the next major animated title, Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, so it has the potential to continue that trend.


After opening to $75.8 million last weekend, Ant-Man and the Wasp fell 62 percent from its debut to land at $28.8 million in weekend two, good enough for a second place finish. Compared with previous Marvel sequels, this one was slightly more frontloaded than normal. By comparison, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 fell 55.5 percent in its sophomore frame, while Iron Man 2 fell 59.4 percent, Captain America: The Winter Soldier fell 56.6 percent, and Thor: The Dark World fell 57.4 percent.  The latest MCU installment has taken in a total of $132.8 million after ten days, which is roughly 20 percent ahead of the first Ant-Man at the same point in its run.


Coming in at the low end of expectations this weekend was the latest Dwayne Johnson vehicle Skyscraper, which debuted to a relatively disappointing $25.5 million in third place. That puts it even lower than Universal’s conservative weekend projection of $30 million. The audience breakdown here was 55 percent male to 45 percent female, which is identical to the breakdown for Rampage back in April. The Cinemascore was a “B+.”


Relative to recent non-Fast and Furious-related Dwayne Johnson movies, Skyscraper debuted significantly lower than Rampage ($35.7 million), Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ($36.1 million), and Central Intelligence ($35.5 million), and fell short of even Hercules, which opened with $29.8 million in 2014 on its way to a disappointing final gross of $72.6 million domestically. That said, Johnson’s films tend to double and even triple their North American grosses internationally, and Skyscraper should prove to be no exception. Still, overseas markets will have to do even more heavy lifting than usual this time around.


Coming in fourth place in its fifth weekend, Disney’s Incredibles 2 took in an estimated $16.2 million, bringing its domestic total to a massive $535.8 million. After surpassing Finding Dory last weekend to become the highest-grossing animated film of all time in North America, this weekend the Pixar sequel surpassed both Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ($532.1 million) and The Dark Knight ($534.8 million) to become the ninth highest-grossing film of all time domestically.


In fifth, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom grossed an estimated $15.5 million in weekend number four, bringing its domestic total to $363.3 million. The Universal sequel is now number 43 on the list of all-time domestic grossers, just ahead of Deadpool ($363 million) and just behind Disney’s live-action Jungle Book ($364 million).


Falling to sixth place in its sophomore frame is another Universal title, The First Purge, which fell a surprisingly-low 47 percent to $9.1 million after debuting with $17.3 million over the three-day frame last weekend. That gives the horror-action sequel a very good $49.5 million after ten days, putting it just slightly behind the pace of the three previous films in the franchise, all of which dropped more than 60 percent in their sophomore frames.


Seventh place went to Annapurna’s Sorry to Bother You, which took in an estimated $4.2 million in its expansion to 805 theaters after debuting to a stellar $727K on only 16 screens in its limited debut last weekend. This weekend’s per-screen average was a healthy $5,289, marking a successful expansion for the Boots Riley-directed film. It now has roughly $5.3 million in the bank and is primed to expand wider after this weekend’s performance.


In eighth place, Sony’s Sicario: Day of the Soldado took in an estimated $3.8 million in its third weekend, giving it a domestic total of $43.2 million and putting it just a few million shy of the first Sicario‘s $46.8 million lifetime gross in North America. In ninth, Lionsgate’s Uncle Drew grossed an estimated $3.2 million for a total of $36.6 million after three weeks of release, while tenth place went to Ocean’s 8, which took in an estimated $2.9 million for a total of $132.2 million after six weeks.


Limited Release: 


A24 opened the critically-acclaimed Eighth Grade in four theaters and took in an estimated $252,284, giving the Bo Burnham dramedy a fantastic per-screen average of $64,137.


Amazon Studios’ Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot took in an estimated $83,120 on four screens, good for a per-screen average of $20,780. Directed by Gus Van Sant, the film received mainly positive reviews from critics.


The summer’s latest hit documentary Three Identical Strangers brought in an estimated $1.18 million in its expansion to 167 screens, giving the Neon release a very good per-screen average of $7,072 and a domestic tally of $2.5 million after three weeks of limited release.


Overseas Update:


Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation took in an estimated $46.4 million in 44 international markets this weekend, vaulting its global total past $100 million. Sony previously opened the film in Australia and New Zealand, where it took in roughly $6 million in the two weeks prior to its debut in other territories.


Skyscraper opened to an estimated $40.4 million overseas this weekend in 57 territories, including $4.6 million in Korea, $3.7 million in Mexico, and $2.6 million in Russia. The global tally is $65.9 million.


Ant-Man and the Wasp grossed an estimated $35.3 million internationally, bringing its overseas total to $150.9 million and its global tally to $283.7 million. Updated totals include $34.5 million in Korea and $11.5 million in Mexico, while key future openings for the MCU installment include Germany (July 26), the U.K. (August 2), and Japan (August 31).


The global total for Incredibles 2 increased to $856.9 million this weekend after the animated blockbuster brought in an estimated $33.3 million in 43 markets. Country totals include $51.5 million in China, $36 million in Mexico, and $29.5 million in Australia.
