Men in Black: International was at the top of the box office but it was another weekend of new entries in established franchise vastly underperforming compared to their predecessors while Dark Phoenix continues to fall off a cliff and dropped almost 75% from last weekend.
Another weekend of underperformance as Secret Life of Pets 2, despite taking the top spot, was nowhere near the opening of its predecessor while Dark Phoenix ended the Fox X-Men franchise with its lowest opening ever.
Godzilla took over the box office but it was a much lower opening than expected and nowhere near its 2014 predecessor while Rocketman and Ma had solid debuts and Endgame is a hair’s breadth away from taking the All-Time record from Avatar.
Disney dominated the holiday weekend with the live action remake of Aladdin, while the other two releases performed around expectations and Avengers crawls ever closer to taking out Avatar on the All-Time box office chart.
If anyone was going to take out The Avengers, it was going to be John Wick and John Wick Chapter 3 took the top spot at the box office with an opening weekend that was more than the first John Wick made in its entire run at the box office and Keanu’s second highest opening of all time.
Endgame managed to hold off all the new releases to stay on top for the third weekend in a row as it closes in on Avatar worldwide but Detective Pikachu almost managed to top it with the biggest opening ever for a video game based movie.
Avengers: Endgame continues to absolutely dominate the box office both domestically and worldwide as it closes in on the all-time box office record set by Avatar with over $2.188 billion made so far worldwide.
Going into this past weekend, no one had any doubt Avengers: Endgame would be massive but it’s still utterly stunning how huge the movie was, breaking basically every record that you could possibly measure.
The Curse of La Llorona took the top spot at the box office over the Easter weekend in the last weekend before Avengers: Endgame arrives to destroy every record in its path.
Shazam took the top spot at the box office again for its second weekend out as none of the new releases could top it, most of all the disastrous new Hellboy.
