US Boxing Office Howls at Pets

Image Last weekend in the North American box office ended quite well: Compared to the same week in 2018, distributor fees increased by 43%. But if on the whole the weekend can be called successful, then for the newcomers to the rental they turned out to be difficult: neither "Dark Phoenix" nor "The Secret Life of Pets 2" did not live up to their expectations.

The top five North American box office for June 7-9 is as follows:

1. "The Secret Life of Pets 2"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: $ 47.1 million
Total box office: $ 47.1 million
Sank / Rise: - (-)

Even before the premiere, analysts said that the sequel would not reach the results of the first part ($ 104.3 million), which became a real hit a few years ago. Universal Studios and Illumination hoped that the cartoon would raise at least $ 50 million, but conquering even this mark turned out to be an impossible mission for him. The Secret Life of Pets 2 kicked off on par with Monsters on Vacation 2 and Kung Fu Panda 2, each of which earned more than $ 165 million in home theaters, but competition in blockbuster season could play a cruel joke on the sequel. and then $ 160 million will remain just a dream for the producers.

2. "X-Men: Dark Phoenix"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: $ 33 million
Total box office: $ 33 million
Sank / Rise: - (-)

The vice-leader of the rental has nothing to brag about either. By the weekend, "Dark Phoenix" approached with a load of negative reviews from critics, so that the worst start in the history of the X-Men franchise was almost assured. "Apocalypse" with its $ 65.7 million was considered a failure, and now the film by Simon Kienberg has finally buried a film series with a long history. It is unlikely that such an ending for mutants dreamed of studio 20th Century Fox, and "Dark Phoenix" may be the first film in the franchise, which does not exceed the $ 100 million mark in the US box office.

3. "Aladdin"


Week at the box office: 3
Added: $ 24.5 million
Total box office: $ 232.4 million
Sag / Rise: -1 (-42.8%)

"Aladdin", unlike its closest pursuer, the sequel to "Godzilla", dropped just one line. By next weekend, Guy Ritchie's tape should overtake Oz: The Great and Terrible (234.9 million) and Maleficent ($ 241.4 million) at home. If we talk about the global fees, then Aladdin has already accumulated $ 604.9 million.

4. "Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters"


Week at the box office: 2
Added: $ 15.5 million
Total box office: $ 78.6 million
Sank / Rise: -3 (-67.5%)

The sequel repeated the fate of Godzilla, which lost 67% of viewers in the second week. True, in 2014, the prospects for the first part were more optimistic. As with Dark Phoenix, analysts have questioned Michael Dougherty's film's ability to raise more than $ 100 million, clearly signaling the blockbuster's failure on the home front. Outside the United States, the situation is better, and in the end, foreign viewers will help the film reach the level of self-sufficiency.

5. "Rocketman"


Week at the box office: 2
Added: $ 14 million
Total box office: $ 50.5 million
Sank / Rise: -2 (-45.6%)

If we talk about modern musical biopics released in the United States, then "Rocketman" has already bypassed the films "2pac: The Legend" ($ 44.9 million) and "Jersey Boys" ($ 47 million), but before the result of last year's drama "One can only imagine "($ 83.5 million), which could not boast a stellar cast," Rocketman ", apparently, will not get there.
