Ant-Man and the Wasp Takes Opening Weekend, Incredibles 2 Breaks Domestic Record

No surprise but looks like Ant-Man and the Wasp has managed to take the top spot during it’s opening weekend. The film managed to make $76 million here in the US while taking in $85 million internationally. This brings it’s opening global total to $161 million. This is considered an improvement over the modest success of the first film from 2015, nearly doubling what that film did it’s opening weekend.

In second place, Incredibles 2 continues to make records, being the first animated film to make over $500 million in the US, currently standing at $504.3 million domestically. Internationally, the film stands at $268.4 million, bringing the film’s global total to $772.7 million.

In third place, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom brought in $28.5 million, bringing it’s domestic total up to $333.3 million Combined with it’s international total of $725.3 million. This weekend brought the film over $1 billion at the box office.

In fourth place, fellow newcomer The First Purge saw a $31 million take in the US, along with an international amount of $10.9 which makes the film’s opening global total $41.9 million.

In fifth place, Sicario: Day of the Soldado continues to surprise, bringing in $7.3 million. This brings it’s domestic total to $35.3 million. Along with it’s international total of $8.2 million, the film’s global total currently stands at $43.5 million.

In sixth place, Uncle Drew also continues to surprise, bringing in $6.6 million. It’s domestic total is $29.9 million but it’s international total is minimal with $605,644. This brings the film’s global total to $30.5 million. Given the film’s production budget estimated at $19 million, the film appears to be on it’s way to being a small success.

In seventh place, Ocean’s 8 brought in $5.2 million. With a domestic total of $126.7 million and international total of $110.1 million, the film currently has a global total of $236.8 million.

In eighth place, Tag doesn’t seem to want to quit, bringing in $3.1 million. The film has a budget of $30 million so with it’s global total of $60.8 million ($48.3 million domestically and $12.5 million internationally), the film technically has broken even.

In ninth place, the Mr. Rogers documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor? has managed good business, currently having a domestic total of $12.3 million, brought to this number by the $2.5 million the film brought in this weekend.

Finally, in tenth place, Deadpool 2 managed $1.6 million. Impressively, the film has managed $727.2 million even without a release in the China market. Domestically the film has $314.5 million and internationally the film has $412.7 million.

That concludes the top ten at the box office for this weekend. Stay tuned!
