Thursday Preview Numbers:

Ant-man made $6.4m, which places it a little below Thor: The Dark World ($7.1m Thursdays for a $85.7m opening weekend). Estimates currently state $60 - $65m for Ant-man.

Trainwreck pulled $1.8m, slightly above Spy ($1.5m) but a bit below Ted 2 ($2.6m).

Minions topped the charts yesterday with another $9.5m, it has made $166.5m since opening.

Inside Out made another $2.2m and is currently sitting at $294.7m.

I'm not sure Ant-man will have a great opening week B.O. (no, not 'body ordor') intake, but word of mouth I think will make it a surprise hit of the summer.

I going to guess it will do better than estimates and land around $75 million domestic.

That and his mastery of friendship would have been much clearer if Wright had directed the film.

Wright probably would have directed the film if he was a master at friendship.

The hits just keep on coming for Universal.

How this splits up: To date, Uni is the stateside marketshare leader with $1.7B and another $3.29B abroad.

More reason for Uni executives to throw extra steaks on the barbecue this weekend: Jurassic World is crossing $600M mark at the domestic B.O. today, making it the fastest film to clear that benchmark in 36 days. Total global haul for the Steven Spielberg produced film is $1.49B worldwide. Meanwhile, Illumination Entertainment’s Minions ran past $500M at the global B.O. last night.
What started as a slightly bumpy year (Black Hat, Seventh Son) has really turned around for Universal.

Sources tell BoxOffice that Ant-Man headed for $65 million during its debut frame, while Trainwreck is on pace for $37 million. Ant-Man should have no problem pushing Minions out of the #1 spot.

Check back tomorrow for updated projections and official studio numbers.

Good to see Paul Rudd finally get his own franchise. The man has paid his dues and deserves it.

He really was doing quite well even before this one imo.

While he usually chooses smaller budget fare that pulls in a profit, I would consider Rudd on the bottom tier of A-List status. People know who he is, but they're not going to go out of their way to see a film of his. However, I'll second Perkinsun Dzees's comment. Rudd has tons of charm, charisma, and genuinely comes off as an all-around great guy; it's good to see him finally get his due from Hollywood (and get a screenwriting credit on top of it too). Surprisingly, this is also the lowest-budget film in the entire MCU to date at $130M.

I do think Ant-Man and Trainwreck are going to have some significant legs, especially with WOM being through the roof on both. People are genuinely surprised how entertaining and fun Ant-Man is and it feels Trainwreck is a return to form for Apatow.

Pitch Perfect 2 is going to wind up outgrossing Ted 2 (domestically) 2:1. Few people saw that coming.

There was way more demand for a Pitch Perfect 2 over a Ted 2 so it makes sense, I didn't think the first Ted was actually all that popular despite making a nice chunk of change at the B.O. fwiw, Ted 2 was a lot funnier than the first and PP2 imho. Pitch Perfect was a phenomenon on video.

I was calling Pitch Perfect 2 to outgross the original film in its opening weekend months before its release, especially when Fifty Shades of Grey did over $80M in its opening weekend. While the box office estimates this summer have been a mess (especially with Jurassic World), that one was expected. I was more surprised that it didn't have the legs the first one did, especially when higher performing comedy sequels tend to have minimal drops week-over-week.

This was the only scene in Ted 2 that was greater than what was presented in the first film:

<iframe src="*****************e/KqWe?stats=1&tools=1" width="854" height="354" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen scrolling="no"></iframe>

After A Million Ways to Die in the West failed at the box office, I had a suspicion Ted 2 would've been dealt a similar hand. I enjoy MacFarlane's (dark) sense of humor and regardless of what I thought of each of his films, they all suffer from the same problem: they're too long.

I loved Ted 2. Saw it twice. Thought it was a bit better than the first. No idea why it didn't do as well other than going up against Jurassic World and Minions which both were still going strong.

Was hoping Ant-Man would do better than the estimates. Loved all the movies I've seen of him and it's about time he gets a big role in a franchise.

I think he meant Ted 2 was expected to perform better.

I never said PP2 wasn't going to massively outgross the first movie. THAT I was expecting. I stated that pretty much NOBODY thought it was going to outgross Ted 2. Focus!

There's almost always a breakout comedy during the summer - Something About Mary out-grossing Godzilla in 98 for ex. Pitch Perfect might be that one for this yr - beating a lot of established, male centered movies. Trainwreck looks to be a winner also, though I don't anticipate it reaching Knocked-Up numbers.

Looks like Ant-Man came in at $58 million for the weekend. 2nd lowest opener for a Marvel movie, in front of Incredible Hulk.

So Ultron does not beat Avengers and now Ant-Man is slightly under estimates. Has the Marvel fatigue started?

It all depends on how you spin it. Stated another way, a movie about a character unknown outside of comic book fans opened stronger than a film featuring a character who'd already starred in a successful television series and a prior major motion picture.

Regardless, original estimates prior to the last week were 55-65M opening, so it fell right in to those expectations. Realistically, nobody was expecting this to duplicate the blockbuster success of "Guardians of the Galaxy". And it's getting generally good word of mouth in addition to a decent opening, so I don't think Marvel has too much to worry about.
