Men in Black didn't save the USAn box office

Image A wave of unsuccessful sequels swept not only North American, but also USA distribution. In our review a week ago, we mentioned that that weekend was the worst in the last month and a half, and distributors were surely hoping that the new Men in Black would cheer up the domestic box office. It was not so: the total receipts of cinemas fell again and amounted to only 604.5 million rubles.

The top five for the weekend (June 13-16) is as follows:

1. "Men in Black: International"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: 241 million rubles.
Total fees: 322.8 million rubles.
Sank / Rise: - (-)

The spin-off disappointed spectators from the United States, and the USAs and the Americans agree on this issue. Released in 2012, "Men in Black 3" mastered 533.1 million rubles at the start, so the amount of 240 million rubles. looks very modest. The last "Lara Croft" began conquering USA cinemas in approximately the same way, but comparison with the updated tomb raider hardly benefits "Men in Black".

2. "The Secret Life of Pets 2"


Week at the box office: 3
Added: 123.7 million rubles.
Total fees: 1.34 billion rubles.
Sank / Rise: - (-38.6%)

If it were not for "The Secret Life of Pets 2" and "Aladdin", the distributors would have remained at a broken trough. However, it was this couple, focused on family audiences and retaining most of the audience, that helped cinemas to earn some decent amount. "The Secret Life of Pets 2", by the way, just ahead of the third "Monsters on Vacation" (1.27 billion rubles).

3. "Aladdin"


Week at the box office: 4
Added: 75.3 million rubles.
Total fees: 1.18 billion rubles.
Sank / Rise: - (-36.5%)

Guy Ritchie's tale was distinguished by an even smaller drop in audience interest than The Secret Life of Pets 2. In the list of Disney game remakes, Aladdin is fourth, following Alice in Wonderland (RUB 1.25 billion), Maleficent (RUB 1.31 billion) and The Jungle Book (RUB 1.36 billion) .).

4. "X-Men: Dark Phoenix"


Week at the box office: 2
Added: 66.6 million rubles.
Total fees: 379.2 million rubles.
Sagged / Increased: -3 (-69.9%)

Negative reviews and a vague start of the blockbuster did their job: the box office of "Dark Phoenix" in the second weekend fell by 70%. Although for the sake of fairness, it should be noted that "Apocalypse" in the same situation lost 79% of viewers. However, this will not help Simon Kinberg's film, and there can be no question of conquering the mark of 700 million rubles, which Apocalypse and Days of Future Past succeeded in.

5. "Ma"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: 32.8 million rubles.
Total fees: 32.8 million rubles.
Sank / Rise: - (-)

The new horror film from producer Jason Bloom did not start in the best way in the domestic box office. The debut of Ma is comparable to the first results of Upgrade (31.6 million rubles), which eventually raised a little more than 60 million rubles.
