After a strong run for the box office, things have started to slow down again. After the poor performances of In The Heights and Peter Rabbit 2 last weekend, this weekend was no different as only one film made it to double digits. That was the debut of The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard.
1. Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard
Lionsgate’s The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard opened a little more than its relatively modest expectations to take first place this weekend with an estimated $11.6 million. That places the film’s five-day start at $17 million. The film benefited from having its location count go from 2,940 locations during the midweek to 3,331 locations over the weekend. The Father’s Day holiday on Sunday and good audience reactions as the film received a respectable B rating on CinemaScore surely helped its cause. The opening of F9 next week makes it is doubtful it will have legs like the first film, which was to of the charts for three weeks.
On the international markets, the film debuted in Mexico and the U.K this past weekend. It’s $2.2 million opening in the U.K was only 12% below the first film.
2. A Quiet Place 2
After surprisingly returning to first place at the box office last weekend, Paramount’s A Quiet Place 2 had to settle for second place this weekend with an estimated $9.4 million. The film continued to hold up well this weekend, especially for a horror sequel, having only to see its returns decline by a slim 22%. Its domestic total stands at $125 million which is 16% lower than the first film in the same time frame.
Internationally, the film grossed an additional $15.7 million this weekend from 45 markets. A Quiet Place 2 has grossed $96.7 million to date at the international markets and has a global haul that stands at $222.0 million.
3. Peter Rabbit 2
Third place went to Peter Rabbit 2 which made $6.1 million. That figure was a drop of 40% in its second weekend. While the drop isn’t bad, the $20.3 million total is 59% down from the first film after its second weekend. Being a family film, the film can hold up better than other holdovers next weekend in the face of F9 but will face new direct competition from Universal and DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby: Family Business.
Through Sunday, the totals for the film stand at $70.5 million internationally and $90.8 million globally.
4. The Conjuring 3
The Conjuring 3 passed the $50 million domestic mark this weekend with an additional $5.2 million. The film has grossed $53.6 million in its first 17 days. That currently ranks the film as the seventh highest-grossing film since the re-opening of domestic theatres.
Internationally, The Conjuring 3 grossed an estimated $12.4 million this weekend from 56 markets. The totals for the film through Sunday stand at $89.2 million internationally and $142.8 million globally.
.Cruella took home fifth place once again with $5.1 million which presented a very stronghold down only 24.3% in its fourth weekend. The Disney film now has a domestic total of $64.7 million, making it the third film in the pandemic era to cross the $60 million mark.
Cruella earned an additional $11.9 million internationally this weekend from 41 markets. That brings the film’s international absolute to $95.2 million and the current worldwide accumulation to $159.9 million.
Warner and Legendary’s Godzilla vs Kong passed the $100 million domestic mark this weekend with $250,000 this weekend. The film is just the second film to reach this milestone in the pandemic era, the other being A Quiet Place Part II.
