Battle at the Box Office 6/10/24

After weeks of disappointment at the summer box office, Bad Boys: Ride or Die delivered some much-needed pop with a stronger-than-expected opening and took the #1 spot.

Bad Boys: Ride or Die opened to $56.5 million, above predictions that put it around $40 million. It’s about $6 million below the opening for Bad Boys for Life back in 2020, which was $62.5 million, and seemed to be an indicator that 2020 was going to be a great year at the box office before things went to hell. Unadjusted for inflation, it’s the second-best opening for the Bad Boys franchise, $10 million above Bad Boys II in 2003. Bad Boys: Ride or Die has $105.1 million worldwide. Compared to other 2024 summer movies, it will most likely pass Furiosa, making almost as much in one weekend as Furiosa has made in three weeks out and is about $10 million below Garfield. If it keeps pace just behind Bad Boys for Life, it could come close to or cross over $200 million domestically.

The Garfield Movie dropped to second place with $10 million. For three weeks out, it has $68.6 million domestically and $192.7 million worldwide. It’s about $16 million from topping Garfield: The Movie from 2004 to become the highest-grossing Garfield movie worldwide.

IF remained in third place with another $7.8 million, dropping only 25% from last weekend. It has $93.3 million domestically and $160.5 million worldwide. It’s currently the second highest-grossing movie since the start of the summer season with The Fall Guy, behind Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.

The Watchers opened in 4th place with $7 million. Directed by Ishana Night Shyamalan, it’s about half as much as the lowest recent opening from her father, M. Night, which was Knock at the Cabin in 2023 with $14.1 million.

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes rounded out the top 5 with another $5.4 million. It now has $149.7 million domestically and $359.7 million worldwide.

Further down the list, The Lord of the Rings returned to the top 10, with the re-releases of The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers coming in 8th and 9th place, respectively. Fellowship made $2.4 million, and The Two Towers made $1.9 million.

Bad Boys: Ride or Die also took the Per Theater average for the week, making $14,556 in each of the 3,885 theaters it played in over the weekend.
