  1. Power Rangers opened in Japan today but looks like another market where it will bomb. According to Corpse, it will easily fall below $1 million for its opening weekend and not even make Top 5 or 6.
  2. Minions would be closer to 700M in today's ER. U.K. and Latin America suffered considerable drops in their currencies since 2015. But I still think over 600M OS is locked for DM3, probably closer to 650M depending on China.
  3. Zootopia was holding so well late in its run. It probably could have added at least $10 million more if it didn't lose most of its theaters/screens to Alice 2 and then Finding Dory two weeks later. Also, Frozen's record 10th weekend is insane (it was even higher than its opening weekend). Even the other massive phenomenons like Spirited Away and Your Name couldn't come close. I would be surprised if Beauty and the Beast dropped less than 50% next weekend since it will also be losing the majority of its theaters/screens to Pirates 5 according to Corpse.

Its chances of exceeding ¥2 billion ($20 million) are becoming higher and higher, and it'll have to suffer some serious drops over the next couple weeks to miss the milestone. It's likely to out-gross Kong: Skull Island to become the highest-grossing film of 2017 for Warner Bros.. >Beauty and the Beast had to settle for another close second place finish, selling a further 144,239 admissions, but its tenth weekend is one of the 10 biggest of all-time. Also, Disney has major reason to celebrate, too, since the film out-grossed Alice in Wonderland over the weekend to become their highest-grossing live-action film in Japan and their most-attended live-action film by selling more admissions than Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. It's become a trend for Disney to cut into the legs of their major performers late in their runs when they have another major tentpole coming up (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on Saturday), so I expect the same to happen this upcoming weekend, especially with the two records Beauty and the Beast just claimed. >Hacksaw Ridge came in a little lower than I was expecting but it stays above ¥100 million with actuals, so it's a win for the film and a bigger win for distributor Kino Films. Mel Gibson's latest sold 83,135 admissions over the weekend across 252 screens. Japan will become either its second or third biggest international market behind China (very impressive there), and maybe the UK. June is finally over, and the box office will enter the two biggest months of the year -- July and August -- this upcoming weekend, so expect some interesting figures at last in the coming weeks/months.

  5. Pirates 4 had a 7.36x multipier, so a $9-9.5 million opening weekend would be required if this has the same legs.
  6. I wasn't sure about Mulan myself. It certainly could do it if it breaks out in China, but that's a big if at this point. I'm also not sure how well it will play elsewhere overseas considering Mulan isn't a universally beloved classic like Beauty and the Beast or even Jungle Book. I'm thinking $800-900 million right now.
  7. Just Avengers: Infinity War and Jurassic World 2. If Han Solo moves to December, I'll include it too.
  8. Hong Kong Box Office

    I'm not surprised. Buzz has been almost non-existent.
  9. Good point. I wonder if the title of the movie mattered, or if superhero fatigue is setting in. It will be interesting to see if Infinity War increases or decreases in China from Age of Ultron.
  10. Yes, perhaps it was unfair of me to expect Wonder Woman to perform as well as movies with multiple superheroes. I believe the ceiling is actually quite a bit higher in China for solo superhero movies as IM3 demonstrated (its $121 million in 2013 would be equivalent to over $200 million today).
  11. Domestic and Latin America are performing fantastic for sure. I think Asia's numbers are okay but nothing impressive and way behind relative to Latin America and North America proportionally (based on market size). Numbers in China and South Korea are decent for a DC film but well under the potential for the superhero genre.
  12. NINJAGO

    I'm thinking about the same as Lego Batman or maybe just under. The lack of iconic characters might hurt its appeal, although I could see this playing slightly better in Asia.
  13. Jurassic World II OS Thread

    I'm going to say $1 billion OS, making it Universal's second consecutive $1 billion earner internationally. It will decrease in several markets because of the exchange rates, but I can see it doing $300+ million in China this time. First one had great WOM but legs were cut short by protection period. Almost beat AoU in China despite a ~40% lower opening. Major blockbusters get an extension from 1 month these days in China, so hopefully JW2 gets one this time.
  14. I have a feeling it could be huge in China too. Skull Island made $170 million, and this is a much larger scale version of that basically in terms of monster battles. It looks like it has almost a full month (assuming same day release) before F9 hits, similar to the situation with Skull Island and F8 this year. F&F films have become such a behemoth in China that few films can survive when it releases.
