Ant-Man and The Wasp dominated the weekend with an opening at that was over $12 million above what the first Ant-Man made in its opening weekend while The First Purge continued the solid performances of The Purge franchise for Blumhouse and Fallen Kingdom crossed over the $1 billion mark worldwide.
Fallen Kingdom remained on the top of the box office for a second week in a row while new releases Sicario: Day of the Soldado and Uncle Drew did better than expectations.
Although it didn’t reach the insane heights of Jurassic World, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom still had a gigantic opening while Incredibles 2 also put up a ton of competition and became the second highest grossing film of the summer in its second week of release.
Incredibles 2 dominated the box office with the biggest animated and G/PG openings of all time and making it into the top 10 for a bunch of other record lists.
Ocean’s 8 topped the box office with the best, unadjusted, opening for the Ocean’s franchise while Hotel Artemis bombed and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opened internationally to some big numbers.
Solo remained on the top of the box office for a second week but it suffered a 65% drop off from last week and will most likely be the first Star Wars movie under Disney to lose money.
Probably due to a variety of factors and some big competition at the box office, Solo did not perform up to the expectations of Disney over the holiday weekend, making far less than any of it’s predecessors in the new wave of Star Wars films.
Although it didn’t quite top his first movie, Deadpool’s second adventure still had one of the biggest R rated openings of all and pushed Thanos and The Avengers out of the top spot at the box office.
Infinity War continued to dominate over Mother’s Day weekend, becoming the fifth highest grossing film of all time worldwide and the eighth highest grossing film of all time here in the States.
Avengers: Infinity War became the fastest film to reach $1 billion worldwide and added another $112+ million over the weekend while the remake of Overboard fared the best of the weekend’s new releases.
