Audiences Respond to the “Call of Duty” a Second Time, “Final Cut” Sharp

 

Dropping slightly more than Y5’s On Their Own Accord, Eye of the Storm’s sophomore raid at the box office lends credence to last week’s suggestion that the franchise is plateauing, and with The Scavenger Wars Part III continually looming on the horizon (reports from Fandango indicate that pre-sales two weeks out are significantly higher than Part II through the same point), the race to pillage as much as the series can is very much ongoing.

 

The film’s two openers, while not performing spectacularly, still did decently for what they are. Final Cut, which some expectations pegged as high as $25 million, debuted somewhat below those predictions with a $16 million opening, but its premise always had more appeal with a midnight audience than necessarily the general one. Still, with an “A-” cinemascore and a high share of the film’s audience leaning female (up to 60%), “Cut” obviously has the potential to stand out in the marketplace, but with multiple female-led, or at least female-appealing, films coming, that remains to be seen.

 

The animal family film Adam & Cindy also did not exceed expectations, but scored an “A” among the families who did see it. With it and “Cut” both costing only $7 million each, both features should already be in the black by the weekend’s end. Wether or not "Adam & Cindy" can survive the arrival of Should You Imagine? in four weeks, however, remains to be seen.

 

  1. Call of Duty: Eye of the Storm - $24,197,285 (-60.7%) (2nd weekend)
  2. Fatal Attraction - 18,350,880 (-32.3%) (3rd weekend)

“Yang” a True Box Office Tiger

 

Sold as a successor to growing cult favorite Yin from Year 5, Yang vastly outperformed expectations, in the week where a third Scavenger Wars loomed on the horizon even, scoring an impressive opening of $57 million dollars. Analysts attribute this to “Yin”’s reputation growing at a similar rate to the John Wick series, scoring large numbers on home video and streaming after the film’s theatrical release (which was still a respectable $92 million) two years ago. With the buzz around “Yang” centering on the presence of the, well, yang to “Scavenger Wars”’s Daniel Henney, Naomi Scott, the film tracked in the “Scavvies” fandom circles as well, creating a self-sustaining hype machine online that drove audience interest as a sort of “prelude” to next week’s “Scavs” entry.

 

Reviews have been mostly positive, but noticeably less enthusiastic than “Yin” (as of this writing, “Yang” sits at 74 on the critical aggregate), and audience response was to an extent similar, resulting in a “B+” cinemascore. Question remains if “Yang”’s newfound success will be a fluke or not, especially in the coming weeks, but as of right now, the director of Moon, Source Code and, sigh, Warcraft, Duncan Jones, can breathe easy, especially since the $75 million production budget should be covered fairly quickly.

 

  1. Yang - $57,197,427 (1st weekend)
  2. Fatal Attraction - $12,775,016 (-30.4%) (4th weekend)
  3. Call of Duty: Eye of the Storm - $12,558,296 (-48.1%) (3rd weekend)
  4. Sir Thymes Time 2 - $9,777,185 (-35.9%) (5th weekend)
  5. Final Cut - $7,105,695 (-56.4%) (2nd weekend)
  6. Cruis’n - $6,566,196 (-25.4%) (4th weekend)
  7. Adam & Cindy - $6,055,196 (-40.7%) (2nd weekend)
  8. Hilda and the Midnight Giant - $5,018,266 (-29.3%) (10th weekend)
  9. Looping - $4,887,069 (-24.7%) (8th weekend)

Yeah you went bonkers on Yang. Honestly that is way overboard and I would be shocked if it gets anywhere near a respectable modifier

June 16-18 (Father’s Day Weekend)

 

“Scavengers” Score Studio Record over Father’s Day Weekend

 

There wasn’t much doubt that the third entry in the Scavenger Wars franchise was going to have the largest opening weekend of Year 7 so far, possibly for the whole rest of the year, and the studio can pop those champagne bottles for Part III has grossed a stunning $190 million over the Father’s Day frame, making for the third-highest opening in CAYOM history, ahead of Spark: Homeward but behind the $200 million-plus grosses of Year 4’s Odyssey finale and last year’s Spark conclusion. Second all time for a June opener and for an R-rated feature, “Part III” lived up to expectations and then some.

 

While it was never promised as a conclusion to the saga, unlike "Odyssey" and "Spark," "Scavenger Wars" did pitch itself as the wrap-up to the arc established in Year 5’s Part II, and if the former two proved anything, it’s that big cliffhangers mean big money for what comes next, and given that the marketing purposefully did not reveal major aspects of “Part III”’s plot, including burning questions that had been on fans’ minds for years, together caused a major rush to cinemas so as to be ahead of the curve before the inevitable flurry of spoilers hit.

 

Note that none of this is an invitation to have all your tentpoles end on big cliffhangers for cheap attention-grabbing. Actuals Report does not want to be held accountable for whatever forced trends may come from this.

 

With reviews on a similarly strong level to its predecessor, and an “A” cinemascore from opening night audiences, a total of over $500 million at the domestic box office is well in sight for the threequel, and given the equally strong returns expected from international markets (both previous films grossed over $1 billion worldwide, the latter over $1.3 billion), it and Hilda and the Midnight Giant should provide the boost to Cookie Pictures’ finances the struggling studio so desperately needs.

 

A question on some analysts’ minds was just how much of an impact “Part III” would leave in its wake. Needless to say, it was a lot. For family films such as Sir Thymes Time 2 and Adam & Cindy, you mainly saw a loss in business from theaters and screens being dropped, but if you were either Yang or Call of Duty? Oof. The latter especially saw a very harsh drop for this late in the run, and the hope now is that Numerator Pictures manages to recover some of the momentum going into the July 4th frame in a few weeks.

 

  1. The Scavenger Wars Part III - $190,794,134 (1st weekend)
  2. Yang - $20,977,592 (-63.3%) (2nd weekend)
  3. Fatal Attraction - $6,586,106 (-48.4%) (5th weekend)
  4. Sir Thymes Time 2 - $5,310,668 (-45.7%) (6th weekend)
  5. Call of Duty: Eye of the Storm - $4,625,692 (-63.2%) (4th weekend)
  6. Hilda and The Midnight Giant - $3,906,119 (-22.2%) (11th weekend)
  7. Adam & Cindy - $3,255,077 (-46.2%) (3rd weekend)
  8. Final Cut - $3,115,696 (-56.1%) (3rd weekend)
  9. Cruis’n - $3,015,797 (-54.1%) (5th weekend)

Dear “Scavenger Wars”, You’re On Top, But I’m in Strong Second. Sincerely, “Evan Hansen”

 

Social media buzz is the name of the game this summer, think pieces be damned, for the Blankments Productions adaptation Dear Evan Hansen, banking heavily on teens that either can’t or won’t sneak into screenings of The Scavenger Wars Part III (oh, and fans of the musical too, I guess) banked a $45 million opening in the shadow of the giant from last week. Given the legs these things tend to have, a domestic total of $175 million or more is definitely on the cards, especially with an “A+” cinemascore from audiences under the age of 18, although older audiences and parents were a fair bit harsher with an “A-” score overall.

 

Scoring a second weekend higher than most openings this year, “Part III” continued its staggering run with a respectable drop given the sheer size of its opening the week prior. A lot of films saw their box office recover after last week’s curb stomp, and Looping even benefited from a second round of fudge— I mean double features, increasing in gross from last week.

 

  1. The Scavenger Wars Part III - $80,179,567 (-58.0%) (2nd weekend)
  2. Dear Evan Hansen - $45,196,955 (1st weekend)
  3. Yang - $12,126,145 (-42.2%) (3rd weekend)
  4. Fatal Attraction - $4,780,295 (-27.4%) (6th weekend)
  5. Sir Thymes Time 2 - $4,085,015 (-23.1%) (6th weekend)
  6. Looping - $2,750,011 (+7.2%) (10th weekend)
  7. Call of Duty: Eye of the Storm - $2,733,066 (-40.9%) (5th weekend)
  8. Hilda and the Midnight Giant - $2,505,139 (-35.9%) (12th weekend)
  9. Adam & Cindy - $2,344,796 (-27.9%) (4th weekend)
  10. Final Cut - $2,106,495 (-32.4%) (4th weekend)

June 30-July 4 (Independence Day Weekend)

 

“Should You Imagine” Large Box Office Returns? Yes.

 

Proving that animation is near unstoppable in CAYOM, Endless Animation’s first feature after the massively acclaimed Gateways from this past Christmas, the sequel to the similarly acclaimed Can You Imagine? rocked the 4th of July box office with a gross of over $185 million over five days. For any film, bar The Scavenger Wars Part III, that’s a staggering result, and shows that less than stellar reviews (not that they’re bad, just that the general consensus says Should is not as good as “Can”) are hardly a roadblock for family films, especially one as highly anticipated as this one. While Hilda and the Midnight Giant and Sir Thymes Time 2 did score big in the months prior, "Should You Imagine?" shows that parents’ wallets aren't dry just yet. Although, after this weekend, they just might be.

 

Audience reception did mirror the reviews somewhat, as “Should” scored an “A-” cinemascore from those who saw it, but that still translated to an “A+” from viewers under the age of 18, which should mean that the fortunes are abounding for Endless for the rest of the summer.

 

In fifth place, the action film Hearts on Fire wasn't burning especially bright, grossing less than $18 million over the 5-day frame. With a "B" cinemascore, word of mouth is just average, and despite miscast actors performing martial arts being very much present, it wasn't enough to sway audience attention.

 

While the impact was not as strongly felt for most films as it were when “Scavenger Wars” dropped (Call of Duty only dropped thirty-three percent on account of patriotic moviegoers thinking it was their duty for some reason to go see it over the holiday), family films fared even worse than before — “Hilda” and “Sir Thymes” both saw their sharpest plunges by far. Although, being close to the end of their respective runs, I think both Shining Star Animation and Cookie Pictures Animation aren’t losing much sleep over taking such a hit. More alarming it is for Adam & Cindy, which isn’t even in the top ten anymore after only four weeks.

 

What happened? How far did it drop? Who let the dogs out? All burning questions we may never get an answer to.

 

  1. Should You Imagine? - $135,664,951 / $186,803,501 (1st weekend)
  2. The Scavenger Wars Part III - $40,012,839 / $58,240,171 (-50.1%) (3rd weekend)
  3. Dear Evan Hansen - $24,196,011 / $35,215,795 (-46.5%) (2nd weekend)
  4. Hearts of Fire - $13,760,911 / $17,896,695 (1st weekend)
  5. Yang - $6,484,195 / $9,509,106 (-46.5%) (4th weekend)
  6. Fatal Attraction - $3,150,196 / $4,635,017 (-34.1%) (7th weekend)
  7. Call of Duty: Eye of the Storm - $1,814,696 / $2,811,669 (-33.6%) (6th weekend)
  8. Sir Thymes Time 2 - $1,420,966 / $2,170,665 (-65.2%) (7th weekend)
  9. Looping - $1,220,696 / $1,801,696 (-55.6%) (11th weekend)
  10. Hilda and the Midnight Giant - $1,015,205 / $1,655,668 (-59.5%) (13th weekend)

“Imagine” A World Without Drops, Two New Releases Fail To Dent

 

Endless Entertainment’s Should You Imagine? lost half its audience from last week, but from such a massive opening, a drop just over fifty percent in the middle of summer should still be considered a win. Less fortunate were the week’s two openers, the switcheroo comedy The Exchange and supernatural slasher Under the Lake, which both performed to lower expectations at best. Audience interest in smaller films have been waning this summer, and it doesn’t look like either “Exchange” or “Lake” was going to change anyone’s mind, especially with an “B+” and “C-” cinemascore respectively.

 

The Amazon 1-day preview of the Looney Tunes remastered collection scored just over $1 million, which is decent for the type of feature it is.

 

  1. Should You Imagine? - $66,650,795 (-50.9%) (2nd weekend)
  2. The Scavenger Wars Part III - $24,897,573 (-37.8%) (4th weekend)
  3. Dear Evan Hansen - $16,988,066 (-35.2%) (3rd weekend)
  4. The Exchange - $13,266,011 (1st weekend)
  5. Out on the Lake - $9,550,669 (1st weekend)
  6. Hearts of Fire - $5,960,691 (-56.7%) (2nd weekend)

  8. Fatal Attraction - $2,077,660 (-34.0%) (8th weekend)
  9. Call of Duty: Eye of the Storm - $1,079,558 (-46.4%) (7th weekend)

Audiences Say “Doo!”, Albeit in Fewer Numbers

 

Looks like Blankments Productions and EssGeeKay Studios were right to lower the production cost for the second Scooby-Doo installment, Cult of the Creeper, for moviegoing audiences responded by deciding to pay nearly a quarter less attention to the further adventures of the Mystery Inc. crew than they did for its forebearer, Apocalypse. The main factor for this is simply the reverence, or lack thereof, of its predecessor, which received a very mixed response at the time, and so the sequel performed more like the second Treasure Planet than the second Spark, Mass Effect or Scavenger Wars, if we’re drawing space operas as comparisons.

 

To “Creeper”’s fortunes, reception from both critics and audiences are more positive the second time around (cinemascore was an “A-”), and while Attack on Titan and The Long Way Home are likely to be major roadblocks, “Creeper” could still gross north of $160 million if it’s able to hold on in the coming weeks.

 

Down in number five, Looney Tunes: The Classics Remastered performed to its low expectations. A remaster of classic cartoons was always going to appeal far more to Looney Tunes devotees than a general family audience, especially when they still have Should You Imagine? playing in most theaters (or Hilda and the Midnight Giant to rent at home starting this week). No exit polling was made.

 

  1. Scooby-Doo: Cult of the Creeper - $53,640,775 (1st weekend)
  2. Should You Imagine? - $37,920,669 (-43.1%) (3rd weekend)
  3. The Scavenger Wars Part III - $14,650,117 (-41.2%) (5th weekend)

“Honor” Can’t Halt “Scoob”

 

In the slowest weekend at the box office since all the way back in March, the collective top 10 grossed under $100 million for the first time in sixteen weeks. Not because the holdovers were stumbling, mind you, but rather because the weekend’s lone new fare, Scout’s Honor, was met with such a collective shrug that it had one of the worst debuts for a film opening in over 3,000 theaters in CAYOM history, less than half of what it was expected to make. One of Numerator Pictures’ other films from two weeks ago, The Exchange, even outperformed it.

 

So what happened? To put it simply, family options have been abundant lately, and Honor in particular had the aura of “nobody cares,” which is a deadly combination. Costing $25 million but playing to empty screens, "Honor" is likely to go down as one of the more quietly embarrassing box office follies in recent years.

 

Meanwhile, Scooby-Doo: Cult of the Creeper saw a better second weekend hold than its predecessor, Apocalypse, and is slowly gaining ground it had lost last week.

 

  1. Scooby-Doo: Cult of the Creeper - $30,085,191 (-43.9%) (2nd weekend)
  2. Should You Imagine? - $24,643,019 (-35.0%) (4th weekend)

Divisive “Titan” Stands Tall

 

Despite receiving varying responses from both critics and audiences (pollsters anticipate a “B+” cinemascore), Lager Pictures’s Attack on Titan still performed up and above some expectations, although with analysts calling “Titan” Matt Reeves’s King Kong to his Lord of the Rings (i.e the Odyssey trilogy), expecting it to match even the first "Odyssey" film in total gross is optimistic. In fact, most analysts see a total anywhere between $270 to $285 million at the moment, depending on how it holds in the coming weeks.

 

The Matt Reeves factor cannot be overstated when it comes to audience interest in “Titan”, even if the manga/anime combo the film is based on saw significant traction online a few years ago. With the final “Odyssey” film even scoring a Best Picture win back in Year 4, and Reeves himself scoring back to back director wins, the perception that anything he’d touch would turn to gold ran high going into “Titan”’s release, and Lager Pictures made sure to plaster his name all over the film’s marketing campaign as if their lives depended on it. 

 

Whether it’ll be enough to carry “Titan” going forward, especially with a direct follow-up scheduled for next year, is a question for another day, but as of right now, Lager can at least take solace in knowing that divisive reception wasn’t enough to sink this outing. Audience praise was levied at action scenes more than character development or story, and while that may sometimes be enough, some of those exit polled did express disappointment with the latter factors, especially with how well previous Lager efforts like the “Odyssey” films and last year’s Borrasca have done on that front.

“Titan” Stumbles But Remains Standing, “Lena” Strung of Feathers

 

Analysts expected Attack on Titan to see a hefty drop from last week and drop it did. It still easily took the top spot, though, not that the competition would’ve stolen it unless the drop was far more catastrophic.

 

While it was adequately spaced away from the likes of Should You Imagine?, Lena and the Featherweights still saw the weakest opening for a major animated feature so far this year, grossing only $27 million, a cry so far from the mammoths that were Cookie Pictures’ Scrooge McDuck films that it can’t even be heard. Now, expectations were never high for “Lena” to begin with, and it fell right in the range of those expectations, but given how major animation has performed so far this year (see Starlight, Hilda and the Midnight Giant, Sir Thymes Time 2 and “Imagine?”) it can’t help but look underwhelming in comparison.

 

In some respects, the cards were stacked against “Lena" from the beginning. Even if the "Scrooge McDuck" series hadn’t met an abrupt and unfortunate end due to numerous development issues, “Lena” was going to be a tricky sell to anyone but those infatuated with the character from the 2017 reboot of DuckTales, due in part to being from an unproven studio and asking audiences to accept this paradigm when memories are still fresh from Year 3’s The Number One Dime, of which the Lena character isn’t even mentioned in.

 

This could’ve been easily remedied if the film announced its arrival with authority and had the reception to back it up, but with poor reviews from critics, many of which describe the film as lacking, it couldn’t tout that in its favor. Now, critical reviews don’t matter much for family films, but the response from young audiences lacked the enthusiasm to make up for it. With a “B+” cinemascore, which is mediocre for an animated feature, expecting “Lena” to gross much more than $85 million is fool’s gold, but given the production budget is $75 million, it at least shouldn’t financially sting for Cannastop Productions.

 

  1. Attack on Titan - $41,792,110 (-63.9%) (2nd weekend)
  2. Lena and the Featherweights - $27,233,011 (1st weekend)
  3. Scooby-Doo: Cult of the Creeper - $9,118,604 (-35.8%) (4th weekend)
  4. Should You Imagine? - $9,110,669 (-43.3%) (6th weekend)
  5. The Scavenger Wars Part III - $4,611,799 (-24.8%) (8th weekend)
  6. Dear Evan Hansen - $3,975,242 (-21.5%) (7th weekend)
  7. The Exchange - $2,106,184 (-32.0%) (5th weekend)
  8. Looney Tunes: The Classics Remastered - $1,297,240 (-56.9%) (4th weekend)

August Audiences Took The Long Way “Home”

 

Numerator Pictures finally saw another win after a long string of mild to severe commercial disappointments after the Pillars finale bowed in March, for their original space opera project, The Long Way Home, took home (heh) over $85 million over the weekend, which for a mid-August feature is very impressive. Space operas continue to be a big deal in the CAYOM landscape, and while it didn’t reach the coveted “$90 million zone” that the first Spark, Scavenger Wars and Mass Effect inhabited, it was still a fairly impressive result given the critical response was more mellow than those films.

 

Audience response was fairly positive though, as indicated by an “A-” cinemascore, and with jack all in terms of significant competition until the next Last Six installment way into next month, expect “Home” to stick around for a “long” time (I’m just full of these today!).

 

  1. The Long Way Home - $85,844,915 (1st weekend)
  2. Attack on Titan - $18,846,404 (-54.9%) (3rd weekend)
  3. Lena and the Featherweights - $13,510,696 (-50.4%) (2nd weekend)
  4. Should You Imagine? - $5,150,119 (-39.5%) (7th weekend)
  5. Scooby-Doo: Cult of the Creeper - $5,005,795 (-45.1%) (5th weekend)
  6. Roman Fever - $3,076,191 (+1,060.4%) (2nd weekend)
  7. Dear Evan Hansen - $2,770,195 (-30.3%) (8th weekend)
  8. The Scavenger Wars Part III - $2,229,794 (-44.4%) (9th weekend)
  9. The Exchange - $2,203,348 (+4.6%) (6th weekend)
  10. Looney Tunes: The Classics Remastered - $1,015,188 (-21.7%) (5th weekend)

The drops for all the holdovers for Labor Day are going to be *chef's kiss* because nothing of consequence is opening then.
