Zootopia has been out 8 weeks. Moved from #5 UP to #4 this week. Not too shabby.

Who knew Mothers Day would bomb

When was the last time Kate Hudson had a hit? When Bush was president?

She is attractive but nobody watches her movies.

It's an ensemble cast movie. She wasn't the "star", so not exactly fair. But it that counts, then the last movie of hers to do well was Kung Fu Panda 3

I'm looking forward to Gary Marshall's upcoming Arbor Day, but production on that one might not happen.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Kate Hudson was the "bonus actress" to the movie after Aniston and Roberts.

Sorry, his movies are moving chronologically through the calendar and we already missed that one.

Sign me up for Flag Day, though!


Any word on what Ratchet and Clank took in? I doubt it was as high as the $6M projection if my theater was any indication.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

disney has a shot at going 1, 2, 3 this week if zootopia can hang in there.

though #3 for zootopia would be quite a feat, i wouldn't be surprised if it jumped to at least 4 or 5.

Summer - superheroes

The Marvel slate is basically scattered though, Dr. Strange and Thor is in Nov, Black Panther is slated for Feb.

Despite the fact that I will have seen all 3 movies, I don't think Zootopia, Jungle Book, and Civil War have too much of a crossover audience where they would be actively cannibalizing each other.

Maybe Zootopia and JB but I don't think anyone expected Zootopia to be the #1 movie in the world through beginning of May.

Disney is having a record year theatrically.

Animated movies don't count since people see them for the stories and animation and not the voice actors.

It looks like she also had some bad plastic surgery when she appeared on Fallon unless it was a bad day.

Unless the voice actors are well known, which they generally are now. And try telling that to voice actors who can't get jobs because they lost a role to a big Hollywood star. I'm sure it happens all the time.

Maybe but if the average person saw Christian Bale listed as a star for an animated movie he or she would not see it just because he was involved.

No, it'd take more than just one recognizable name, like every animated movie to come out in the last 25+ years. It's done as a marketing ploy, sure, but it's something that shouldn't be completely dismissed.

6TH UPDATE, Sunday AM: Disney’s Captain America: Civil War cashed in the fifth highest opening at the domestic B.O. with $181.8M, and along with the studio’s huge fourth weekend success of Jungle Book at $21.8M, and Zootopia beating Batman v Superman, Disney clears the $1B mark at the domestic B.O. ($1.121Bn to date) in 128 days, shattering the previous record set last year of 165 days.
Yesterday, Civil War minted a better than expected Saturday of $61M Saturday, eclipsing Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s $56.5M second day last year and ranking as the fifth highest Saturday of all-time. By EOD today, Civil War is poised to hit $678M worldwide. Within a couple of weeks, $1B worldwide is definitely within shot, essentially $300M more than Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Lots of black ink here in Civil War‘s theatrical run after a $250M production cost and an estimated global P&A near Ultron’s $180M.

Captain America: Civil War scorched the weekend box office, bringing in the fifth largest opening weekend of all-time. The massive debut contributed to Disney bringing in over $200 million this weekend as the studio became the fastest to cross the $1 billion mark in domestic earnings in just 128 days, decimating the 165 day record set by Universal just last year. And while Disney was setting records, the weekend also saw a stellar comeback for Open Road's Mother's Day as it took advantage of its holiday namesake.

With an estimated $181.79 million opening weekend, Civil War not only scored the fifth largest opening of all-time, it is the third largest opening for a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In fact, compared to the other standalone franchises in the MCU, the Captain America franchise continues to show the greatest film-over-film growth as Civil War's opening is a 91.3% increase over the opening for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Also note, Disney under-estimated the opening weekend for Avengers: Age of Ultron last year by $3.6 million and some rival studios suggest Civil War may have brought in as much as $186 million this weekend.

Must be fun times to be a Disney movie exec these days. Between Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and their various cartoons, it's like having their own money printing machine for at least the next decade to come. It would be nice if they would take more chances in their non-franchise mid-budget releases since the profits from their franchise releases could mitigate any risk.

You forget the live action remakes of their old titles (Maleficent, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Jungle Book,etc; ), it all prints money.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

damn, i figured Mother's Day would make some money off the mother's day weekend but didn't think it'd actually increase from the previous week!

zootopia dropped more than i thought it would. i was thinking -30% which would have put it in 4th.
less than $1mil separating 4 thru 7.

Civil War came in at $178m-ish -- they're saying Mother's Day took a bigger bite out than expected.
