Television was suppose to kill it, then VHS, and ultimately streaming.

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Crosses $400 Million at Domestic Box Office

“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” has done its job as Universal’s 2018 tentpole blockbuster, as the film reached $400 million at the domestic box office on Wednesday while also approaching $1.25 billion in worldwide grosses.

Between “Fallen Kingdom” and its 2015 predecessor, “Jurassic World” has grossed more than $1 billion domestically and $2.9 billion worldwide. The series has eclipsed “Fast & Furious” as Universal’s most profitable franchise, as the two films are also the studio’s highest grossing domestic releases of all-time, while “Fallen Kingdom” sits No. 3 on Universal’s all-time global charts behind the first “JW” ($1.67 billion) and “Furious 7” ($1.51 billion).

“Fallen Kingdom” also currently sits internationally at $840 million. Only “Avengers: Infinity War” ($1.36 billion) has grossed more outside the U.S. this year. It has also outperformed the first film in China, earning $260 million.

With “Fallen Kingdom” leading the way, Universal is on pace to cross $1.5 billion in domestic grosses for the fifth time in the last six years, holding $1.1 billion so far this year with a global total of $3.14 billion. Among the films still to come this year from the studio are Damien Chazelle’s Apollo 11 biopic “First Man,” the return of Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode in Blumhouse’s “Halloween” sequel, and Illumination’s adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ “The Grinch.”

The Most 2018 Movies of 2018 So Far, From ‘Infinity War’ to ‘The First Purge’

While Hollywood hasn’t quite switched over to full-on nihilism mode like it did in the Bush years, at least not yet, we have gotten a few studio pictures this year that more or less capture the vibe of living in Donald Trump’s America in 2018.

“Avengers: Infinity War”

A crazy, shocking, potentially world-shattering threat emerges boasting heavy support from religious fundamentalists, and spouting cliche Republican talking points about resource allocation and the need for a strongman to make decisions for everyone — and wins. Trump’s America is basically Thanos’ entire universe.

“Fifty Shades Free”

The “Fifty Shades” finale is basically the story of the extremely rich Christian Grey learning an important life lesson — that he, as an orphan, maybe would have turned into a murderous psycho had he not been adopted by a rich family — and then turning around and having kids the normal way with Ana because those orphans aren’t my kids.

“The First Purge”

Given his open support for literal murderous dictators, it seems likelier with every new “Purge” movie that Donald Trump is going to want to institute  the Purge IRL, right? It would be a bit on the nose but, well, he is President On The Nose. Plus, a major plot point has the government call in Russian support to interfere with an internal matter.

“Gringo”

The story of a nice and normal immigrant man with a normal white collar job who really just wants to live a normal life without anyone bothering him — and so of course everyone tries to kill him. This is basically what living in 2018 America feels like.

“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”

Some people have argued to me that the new “Jurassic World” is bad because the bad people in these movies seem to get even dumber and do more inexplicable things with every new installment. And to that I say: Donald Trump is president, so you may be holding movies to a higher standard of credibility than you are holding reality to.

“Pacific Rim: Uprising”

The world is almost destroyed by a guy who is secretly the puppet of foreign monsters. Hmm.

“A Quiet Place”

The monsters were eventually defeated — on accident by a hearing aid that John Krasinski invented after most of humanity was wiped out. A vision of our future?

“Red Sparrow” — A really resourceful woman uses all her considerable subterfuge skills to outsmart hordes of predatory men and remove a single corrupt Russian government official from office. A heroic #resistance effort, and probably the best possible resolution to the situation — and probably one that won’t do much to help anyone in the near term. But maybe someday!

“Sicario: Day of the Soldado”

Maybe this type of “look at the secret bad things the government is doing!” story doesn’t quite translate to Trump’s America. But at the same time it’s not hard to imagine Trump watching this movie and thinking invading Mexico to fight the cartels is a good idea.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story”

We wallow in nostalgia to try to make ourselves feel better but really we’re not accomplishing anything.

“Tyler Perry’s Acrimony”

This movie has a really clever conceit — crazy person narrates her life story painting herself as the good guy while the movie itself is showing the truth of her badness. It’s basically what watching any Trump speech feels like.

‘Avengers’ and Other Blockbuster Sequels Push Domestic Box Office to Best Ever Quarter

Thanks to a series of highly anticipated blockbuster sequels that started with “Avengers: Infinity War” in late April, the second quarter of 2018 has set a new record for the highest grossing quarter in domestic box office history with $3.3…

Thanks to a series of highly anticipated blockbuster sequels that started with “Avengers: Infinity War” in late April, the second quarter of 2018 has set a new record for the highest grossing quarter in domestic box office history with $3.32 billion.

That’s the sort of quarter you get when you have the biggest opening in industry history, as “Avengers” started the boom period with a $257.6 million opening and has since contributed a total $672 million to domestic receipts.

“Avengers” led seven films that grossed more than $100 million in tickets in the period.

The others include “Deadpool 2,” which became the fifth R-rated film to gross over $300 million with a domestic total of $309 million; and “Incredibles 2,” which grossed $425 million in the quarter and will set a new domestic record for animated films this week. Even “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” which made industry headlines for its weak numbers, contributed $206 million to this quarter’s record total.

The quarter was also bookended by two noteworthy openings. After “Incredibles 2” opened in June, it was immediately followed by “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” which opened to $148 million and gave the box office back-to-back $100 million-plus openings for the first time ever outside of holiday weekends. The openings of “Incredibles 2” and “Fallen Kingdom” have also kicked off weeks where total box office revenue passed $400 million.

Meanwhile, on the front end of the quarter, the long-struggling Paramount got in on the box office boom with John Krasinski’s “A Quiet Place,” which grossed $187 million and became the studio’s biggest domestic success in nearly three years. Women also came out in droves for Warner Bros./Village Roadshow’s “Ocean’s 8,” which earned $112 million.

After 2017 yielded the worst summer for the industry in more than a decade, theater owners reassured investors that numbers would rebound the following year with more heavily-anticipated titles on the slate. The second quarter of 2018 has proven their predictions right, as quarterly numbers came in 23 percent ahead of 2017’s while the year-to-date totals crossed $6 billion before the end of June for the first time ever.

“Movie-going is not dead and consumers are not spending their entire lives on their couches with the various streaming offerings,” wrote B.Riley financial analyst Eric Wold. “Moviegoers want a complete experience and the enhanced theater experiences are helping to provide that and grab market share and increase frequency.”

'Three Identical Strangers' and 'Leave No Trace' Leave Big Mark on Indie Box Office

Domestic Box Office Hits $6 Billion Before July for First Time Ever

Disney Has Already Made $2 Billion at Domestic Box Office This Year

‘Sicario: Day of the Soldado’ Overperforms at Box Office, like Other Summer Sequels

Box office is up nearly 10 percent for the year, but will it sustain?

Summer 2018 shows signs of strength beyond the usual blockbusters. But will the box office sustain beyond its great first half? It depend how one defines sustain. The biggest openings — including Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp” next weekend — are likely behind us and make up the bulk of the long haul. It will take some better-than-expected results from the rest of the forthcoming releases to keep up the pace.

Two modest-budget titles under $50 million, “Sicario: Day of the Soldado” (Sony) and “Uncle Drew” (Lionsgate), performed better than predicted with their respective $19 million and $15.5 million opening weekends. While both fell short of summer 2017 sleepers “Baby Driver” and “Girls Trip,” by opening on the same weekend and adding to the strong holdover totals, the newbies helped the weekend totals come in slightly higher than their equivalent last year. That sustains a year to date total that remains up nearly ten percent.

While new releases deserve attention, let’s not kid ourselves. Brand names are the reason for continued summer results. “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” (Universal) and “Incredibles 2” (Disney) combined did 60 percent of the business this weekend. The Dinoworld sequel with $60 million notched #1 for its second weekend.

That’s a nearly 60 percent drop from its excellent opening. That compares to the 49 percent drop for the second weekend of 2015’s massive “Jurassic” reboot. That’s middling among the summer’s top openers (“Solo” and “Deadpool 2” are greater, with the latter affected by the Star Wars film opening its second weekend.)

If “Fallen Kingdom” in ten days reaches $265 million domestic, which along with outstanding foreign results gets it to a total $932 million worldwide (most foreign dates opened two weeks earlier), the movie should end up overall at about two thirds of the 2005 film (with the domestic share lower, but still strong). But the U.S./Canada total should approach $400 million.

OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS – In “Incredibles 2,” siblings Winston and Evelyn Deavor are huge fans of the Supers and start a campaign to improve their public image and ultimately bring them back. Featuring the voices of Catherine Keener as the brilliant and laid-back Evelyn Deavor, and Bob Odenkirk as the ultra-wealthy and savvy Winston Deavor, “Incredibles 2” opens in U.S. theaters on June 15, 2018. ©2018 Disney•Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

“Incredibles 2”

Pixar

The Pixar sequel “Incredibles 2” dropped 43 percent its third weekend. The easy comparison is to “Finding Dory” two years ago, a June release, a many-years-later sequel to a major success. The third weekend is the same gross as “Dory,” but that total was boosted by falling on July 1-3 on Independence Day weekend. The total so far is $40 million better ($440 million) than “Dory.”

“Incredibles 2” looks on track to become the highest grossing domestic Pixar release ever (including adjusted — it needs to get to the “Finding Nemo” total of $516 million to achieve that).  International openings so far have added $207 million. That’s without multiple major European and Asian countries still to open this (due to World Cup competition). This is a major comeback for Pixar, which, for all of its acclaim, has sometimes struggled to equal routine animation releases from rival studios. And it comes at a time of internal turmoil after John Lasseter’s departure from the company.

Sicario 2: Soldado

“Sicario: Day of the Soldado”

Lionsgate

The unexpected summer release of “Soldado” (released domestically by Sony as a service deal, with original domestic distributor Lionsgate handling overseas) showed that the decent if not exceptional results the first time (with Denis Villeneuve having moved on, along with co-star Emily Blunt, a vital part of the 2015 film).

The gross this time came in more than 50 percent better than the initial wide release previously, which came after two weeks of platform play. That was in early October. It had a terrific four-time multiple (total nearing $50 million), with foreign coming in somewhat below. But the film has thrived on streaming, cable, and otherwise.

Not as well-reviewed as the first film, “Soldado” (“Sicario” has a Metascore of 82 vs. “Soldado” at 60) pulled more general audience interest with its timely border action elements. Last time around the first wide Saturday was up nine per cent, while this time it fell 17 percent. “Soldado” should easily equal the first outing. The $8.4 million international in 55 territories isn’t impressive, though the World Cup provides a major distraction.

uncle drew movie kyrie irving

“Uncle Drew”

The far less expensive African-American basketball comedy “Uncle Drew” (Lionsgate) also topped predictions. With a mostly older cast including some veteran NBA stars (plus the rising Tiffany Haddish) and a family-friendly PG-13 rating, it provided counter-programming at a time when there isn’t a lot of comedy out there.

And it could thrive. It got an elevated A Cinemascore, though still dropped 15 percent day two (“Girls Trip” last summer dropped five per cent its initial Saturday). It should be a mostly domestic appeal title, which makes the initial numbers fairly vital for its future. At least it has hit its initial goal.

Impressive as well is “Ocean’s 8” (Warner Bros.), which dropped only 30 percent and has reached almost $115 million. It could now exceed $130 million. Comedy “Tag” (Warner Bros.) is holding decently, down 32 per cent to reach $41 million. “Deadpool 2” dropped 34 per cent, in the first week since late April not to have two Marvel titles in the Top Ten. It has reached $310 million.

Also of note is the Bollywood biopic “Sanju” (20th Century Fox) getting to #8 in only 356 theaters. Its $2,550,000 million gross is, to put in context, better than any weekend of the very successful documentaries “RBG” (Magnolia) or “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” (Focus) in as many or more theaters. Both film ultimately will be far bigger (figure “Sanju” to reach around $6 million). “Neighbor” meantime retained its #10 spot with a major expansion to 654 theaters and about $2.3 million. It will join “RBG” over $10 million by next weekend, and push considerably higher than that.
