The US Box Office chased the Men in Black

Image North American rentals continue to disappoint distributors, who still hoped that the next parts of popular franchises will help them get rich. However, neither the Men in Black spin-off nor the new Shaft, which remained outside the top-5, reached the level of even the most pessimistic forecasts.

The top five North American box office for June 14-16 is as follows:

1. "Men in Black: International"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: $ 28.5 million
Total box office: $ 28.5 million
Sank / Rise: - (-)

The spin-off frankly disappointed both critics, who gave the film low ratings, and distributors. The previous three parts earned more than $ 50 million each at the start, and the new "Men in Black" could not even reach the $ 30 million mark - this is exactly the amount Sony was counting on. The only hope of the action blockbuster remains overseas viewers, but they are in no hurry to part with money: in other countries, F. Gary Gray's tape earned $ 73.7 million.

2. "The Secret Life of Pets 2"


Week at the box office: 2
Added: $ 23.8 million
Total box office: $ 92 million
Sag / Rise: -1 (-49%)

The animation film, perhaps, would like to retain its leadership in the North American box office, but its audience sank by half, which prevented "The Secret Life of Pets 2" from bypassing "Men in Black". It makes no sense to compare the sequel with its predecessor, since the first part by the end of the second week already had more than $ 200 million in the piggy bank. If you look at the animation genre as a whole, the cartoon will soon bypass Lego Movie 2 ($ 105.8 million).

3. "Aladdin"


Week at the box office: 4
Added: $ 16.7 million
Total box office: $ 263.4 million
Sank / Rise: - (-32.3%)

While Aladdin's competitors are losing ground, the Baghdad thief is not going to leave his familiar third place. Guy Ritchie's film has just bypassed "Maleficent" at home, but in the world the evil witch is still ahead of Aladdin by $ 34 million.

4. "X-Men: Dark Phoenix"


Week at the box office: 2
Added: $ 9 million
Total box office: $ 51.8 million
Sank / Rise: -2 (-72.6%)

The previous week turned out to be difficult for "Dark Phoenix" - few people were interested in the new part of "X-Men", crushed by critics to smithereens. Last weekend, the situation did not improve: the already small audience of the blockbuster fell by almost three quarters, and more in the history of the US box office only "Fifty Shades of Gray" sank. Outside of home theaters, the Dark Phoenix is doing better - it raised $ 152.5 million there.

5. "Rocketman"


Week at the box office: 3
Added: $ 8.8 million
Total box office: $ 66.1 million
Sank / Rise: - (-36.3%)

Elton John's biopic retained the fifth place in the financial rating, and it was not enough for him to bypass the "Dark Phoenix" and rise to the next line. The worldwide collection of "Rocketman" ($ 133.1 million), although it does not allow us to speak of outstanding financial results, the musical drama paid off its $ 40 million budget.
