Saturday Update: Toy Story 4 is heading for another first place finish this weekend, as expected, with Disney reporting a $17.04 million Friday. That brings the hit sequel’s domestic total to $196.0 million through four days of play, 6 percent ahead of the eight-day pace of Toy Story 3 nine years ago ($185.5 million). With yesterday’s earnings, Boxoffice projects the sophomore frame will land around $56 million.





Annabelle Comes Home is pacing to take second place this weekend as it added $6.6 million in its third day of release, climbing to $17.4 million since its domestic Wednesday debut. Although it’s performing slightly below our pre-release forecasts as it paces 13 percent behind the three-day total of The First Purge last year ($19.965 million), the film is still in very profitable territory and continues the Conjuring franchise’s sustained success. Boxoffice projects around a $20 million weekend, which would net a five-day opening north of $30 million stateside. Internationally, the WB/New Line pic stands at $21.1 million through Friday.





Opening in a strong third place, Universal’s Yesterday scored $6.06 million on opening day Friday (including Thursday night’s earnings). Director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Richard Curtis’s love letter to Beatles fans marks the latest musically-driven success on the big screen. As the film looks to over-perform against pre-release tracking and expectations, we’re expecting between $16 million and $17 million this weekend.





Meanwhile, Avengers: Endgame‘s expansion to 2,025 yielded $1.864 million on Friday and brings the domestic haul to $837.65 million. We’re projecting a $6 million+ domestic weekend. Disney hasn’t provided a global update as of this report, but if a similarly strong increase was seen from major markets internationally, the Marvel epic is now a few steps closer to reaching its goal of toppling Avatar‘s $2.788 billion worldwide record. Endgame stood at $2.752 billion before Friday.





Early domestic weekend estimates are below. Studio updates to follow on Sunday.

Friday Report: Warner Bros. and New Line’s Annabelle Comes Home added $3.635 million on Thursday after its $7.19 million opening day Wednesday, giving the horror franchise sequel a two-day domestic haul of $10.822 million going into the weekend. Comparisons are limited at this point given the mid-week opening, fan following, and proximity to next week’s holiday corridor, but the film currently stands 22 percent behind the two-day pace of last year’s The First Purge, which also opened on a Wednesday (although it was the Fourth of July).





Meanwhile, Yesterday bowed last night to an estimated $1.25 million from shows beginning at 7pm in 2,200 locations. That’s not far off from the $1.75 million earned by Rocketman‘s Thursday night shows last month (which excluded $580K in Fandango preview earnings from a previous night).





More updates to follow throughout the weekend as Toy Story 4 is again expected to reign atop the box office.


The post Weekend Estimates: <em>Toy Story 4</em> Eyes $55M+ Second Frame; <em>Annabelle Comes Home</em> Pacing for Solid $30M+ 5-Day Start; <em>Yesterday</em> Beats Expectations w/ Strong $16M+ appeared first on Boxoffice.
