Very competitive weekend at the United States box office. Tom Cruise returned this week to theaters with ‘ Barry Seal: The Dealer’, a film that has surpassed all expectations of critics and audiences and after obtaining an excellent 6 million in its premiere last Friday, it ran to compete together to ‘ Kingsman: The Golden Circle ‘ to get first place in weekend pickup . However, none of the two tapes has managed to reach the number 1 according to the provisional data. Andy Muschietti’s ‘ It ‘ returns to float at the box office and surprisingly hits the top spot again of collection of the weekend according to the first estimated data.
With a 41% drop in its already fourth weekend, the new adaptation of ‘It’ adds another estimated 17.3 million at the box office and accumulates a total collection of 291 million in the United States alone. The Muschietti film also adds another 35.6 million at the international box office after having premiered strongly this weekend in new markets such as Germany. In total, the film has already raised 553 million worldwide , aiming for a revenue of 650 million for the end of its commercial travel in cinemas.
The second and third place of the box office is disputed between ‘Barry Seal: The dealer’ and ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’, with an estimated data of approximately 17 million each. According to the forecasts, the tape starring Cruise would be above the sequel to ‘Kingsman’, although we will have to wait until the final data on Monday to really check which one is positioned above or even if any of them can still stand above ‘It’.
Tom Cruise on ‘Barry Seal: The Dealer’ premiered in the United States after having already done it in several countries in the international market, earning an estimated 17.01 million , surpassing expectations and temporarily placing second in the box office. The film directed by Doug Liman and starring Tom Cruise, has already raised about 81 million dollars worldwide with a budget of only 50, so it will depend on its maintenance in the coming weeks its to ensure its profitability.
‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ totals about 17 million in its second weekend at the box office, showing a 56% drop from last week’s revenue and accumulating a total of 66 million in the United States, a figure similar to the one that had collected its predecessor, ‘ Kingsman: Secret Service ‘, after its second week in billboard. Worldwide, the film directed by Matthew Vaughn has already accumulated 135.2 million.
Also in its second weekend, ‘ The LEGO Ninjago Film ‘ still does not present acceptable figures , placing in the fourth position of the box office with a fall of 41% adding some 12 million to its collection , figures that are kept far from the good numbers that the previous tapes of LEGO managed to amasar in box office. Around the world, it has collected about 58 million dollars.
In the hands of Sony Pictures, also came this week to the US cinemas ‘ Hooked to death ‘, remake of the film ‘Line Mortal’ directed in 1990 by Joel Schumacher . After becoming one of the films with the worst criticism of the year, having obtained a 0% in Rotten Tomatoes and a 30 in Metacritic , the film also has not had much luck in box office , premiering with an estimated figure of only 6.7 million and occupying the fifth place of collection of the weekend. At the international level, too, it has not been very successful, having opened in 21 markets, raising only 3.1 million.
Fox Searchlight, extended this weekend the number of exhibition halls for ‘ The Battle of the Sexes ‘ . The film starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell has been screened at 1213 theaters after its limited release last week, grossing an estimated 3.4 million and occupying sixth place at the box office with a total of 4 million. On the other hand, ‘ American Assassin ‘ is in seventh place with 3.3 million in its fourth week of exhibition, while the top 10 is completed by the comedy ‘ Home Again ‘, the premiere in 500 rooms of ‘Til Death Do Us Part ‘and’ Mother! ‘by Darren Aronofsky, with an average collection of approximately one million and a half each.
Next week ‘Blade Runner’
Next week will hit theaters in the United States ‘ Blade Runner 2049 ‘ , the long-awaited sequel to ‘ Blade Runner ‘ directed by Denis Villeneuve and starring Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford . According to the forecasts, the Villeneuve film aims to raise approximately 40 million next weekend , reaching figures similar to those obtained by other films rated R as ‘ Mad Max: Fury on the road ‘.
Also will premiere the adventure drama ‘ The Mountain Among Us ‘, starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba , a tape that, if the expectations are met, will not be a great competition for ‘Blade Runner 2049’ collecting a figure of about 10 millions of dollars.
