That box office success is going to push Sydney Sweeney into the A-list. People turned out to see her in it. Her next payday is going to be huge.

She also pushed it harder than anyone on social, she deserves a bonus for that alone.

Slow weekend but good holds for Beekeeper, Wonka, Anyone But You and Migration. Poor Things still can't really find its legs but I can't say it's entirely unexpected, it was up only 19% despite more than doubling it's theater count this weekend.

Finishing outside of this list were Origin and Inside the Yellow Cocoon Shell, which were the highest per theater averages for the weekend.

I saw it last night. I enjoyed it. So did my friend. I didn't even realize that it had LGBT themes in it until I was in the theater though, which you know, is more than ok for us, but it made me wonder if there was any backlash for putting that into a "straight" romcom.

THE COLOR PURPLE seems to have dropped off the list entirely.

Weekend estimates as of Sunday morning. Dune 2 doubled Dune's opening weekend. Lot of TV episodes making their way to the big screen over the last month (Chosen, Demon Slayer)

With Dune and then the new Ghostbusters in March hopefully that boosts revenue for movie theaters.

Dune’s longevity will also depend on those who want to see it multiple times and premium screens. I saw it last Sunday in IMAX and really enjoyed it. But, a nearly 3 hour movie is tough to make time for, let alone a second time.

Updated for final numbers. Early presales for next weekend are suggesting Dune 2 will have legs.

Dune 2 looks to be making $44m this weekend for a 47% drop, very impressive. King Fu Panda will top at around $55m. Looks like the Box Office is back in full force this year.

44% drop on Dune 2 is pretty phenomenal. Families starved for something finally got out this weekend as well. D2 is now at $367m worldwide,

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

I have no interest in seeing Arthur the King in the theater. And thank God the trailer is finally going away.

Reviews aren't bad. It's mostly positive. I might watch it on a lazy afternoon at home if I happen to come across it on something I subscribe to already.

Dune 2 is showing good legs, only trailing Kung Fu Panda 4 less than $1million , and that's its third weekend.

Good start for Ghostbusters, another strong hold for Dune 2 and a terrific start for an IFC release in Late Night with the Devil (About triple their highest grossing previous release which was Watcher).

I was wondering about the huge drop--8 slots!--for CIVIL WAR from one chart to the next, but then I looked at the dates of the posts. They're a month apart! See what happens when you go away, RichC2?

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

This "summer season" is really awful at the BO so far.

FRIDAY AFTERNOON: Ouch, it’s looking really bad. Warner Bros.’ Furiosa is possibly posting the lowest opening for a Memorial Day movie in 41 years with a 4-day between $31M-$35M. How the holy heck is that? If the George Miller-directed prequel comes in on the low end, the last time a No. 1 movie or Memorial Day opening title filed a 4-day gross take that was lower was back in 1983, when Return of the Jedi made $30.5M — and that was a lot of money back then.

If Furiosa hits at the high end of its current range at $35M, then that’s the lowest Memorial Day weekend opening since 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, which did $33.9M. Those ’80s grosses are not adjusted for inflation.

Some people are saying the expectations for Furiosa weren’t realistic. It was never going to be a big hit with the masses.

Also, I think box office tracking just isn’t realistic anymore and the numbers are always inflated.
