Toy Story 4 opened with the highest opening ever for the series but did not meet Disney’s absurdly inflated expectations while the new Child’s Play also did not meet its modest expectations and Luc Besson’s latest didn’t even open in the top 10.
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.
The X-Men franchise comes to an underwhelming finale (according to critics) with Dark Phoenix this weekend while Secret Life of Pets 2 and Late Night also arrive in theaters.
What’s old is new again for June as Men in Black, Child’s Play and Shaft all return in new forms along with Toy Story 4, the final chapter of the X-Men as we know them in Dark Phoenix and more.
