Cool "Hobbs & Shaw" Repeats at #1 for 2nd Weekend

Fast & Furious Spin-Off, Hobbs & Shaw, Off to $180 Million Global Launch
by Brad Brevet
August 4, 2019



The Fast & Furious franchise has yet again delivered a #1 opener with the franchise spin-off Hobbs & Shaw taking the top spot at this weekend's box office.

Overall the weekend showed improvement over the same weekend last year for the third straight week in a row and on top of Hobbs & Shaw, continued strong performances from The Lion King, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and the platform release of A24's The Farewell helped what has been a bit of a late summer surge at the domestic box office.







Universal's Hobbs & Shaw debuted in 4,253 theaters this weekend (the second widest release in the Fast & Furious franchise) with an estimated $60.8 million, which is right in line with the studio's pre-weekend expectations.

The $200 million production also received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and currently holds a strong, 90% audience score on RottenTomatoes.

The film also launched in 63 overseas markets this weekend with an estimated $120 million, securing a $180 million global debut.







Disney's The Lion King also delivered on expectations, dipping -50% with an estimated $38.2 million for a domestic cume that now tops $430 million.

Internationally, the film added to its massive global cume with an additional $72 million, pushing its overseas total to $765 million for a global tally topping $1.195 billion.







Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood also lived up to expectations, dipping -51% for an estimated $20 million sophomore frame.

The performance puts the film's domestic gross at $78.8 million as it enters its second weekend in release.







Sony also landed in fourth position with Spider-Man: Far from Home, which added another $7.75 million for a domestic cume that now tops $360 million.

Internationally, the film added another $9.5 million for a global cume that now stands at $1.08 billion.







Rounding out the top five is Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4, which grossed an estimated $7.15 million as it entered its seventh week in release with a domestic cume that now totals $410 million.

Internationally, the animated feature brought in another $10.2 million for an overseas cume that is now just shy of $550 million for a global tally topping $959 million.







Outside the top five, A24's The Farewell continues its strong platform run, grossing over $2.4 million from just 409 locations, bringing the film's domestic cume to $6.8 million.

The film will continue to expand throughout August and beyond with no specific word as to when it will finally reach nationwide status.







In limited release, IFC's The Nightingale debuted in two locations with an estimated $40,082; Neon's Luce debuted with $132,916 from five theaters ($26,583 PTA); Cohen Media debuted Tel Aviv on Fire in 11 theaters with an estimated $50,987 ($4,636 PTA) as well as the 4K restoration of Joan the Maid in one location with an estimated $1,343; Oscilloscope's Jay Myself brought in $19,088 from one location after opening on Wednesday, bringing the film's cume to $27,750; 1091's Them That Follow opened in three locations with an estimated $15,000 ($5,000 PTA); and Music Box's Piranhas opened at New York's Film at Lincoln Center with an estimated $3,049.

Hobbs & Shaw is the reason for keeping the legacy of the (near 2 Decade old) F&F Franchise intact because it very impressive during the opening weekend at the Box Office.

Scary Stories Leads Newcomers with $20.8M Debut as Hobbs & Shaw Repeats at #1
by Brad Brevet
August 11, 2019



It wasn't as close a race at the top of the weekend box office as we thought it might be heading into the weekend as Universal's Hobbs & Shaw held on much better than expected and easily retained the #1 spot for a second week in a row.

As for the weekend's crowd of six new wide releases, CBS Films, eOne and Lionsgate's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark led the way with nearly $21 million, followed by a decent performance from Paramount's Dora and the Lost City of Gold while Fathom and Trafalgar's release of Bring the Soul: The Movie appears to have eked its way into the top ten.







Leading the weekend was Hobbs & Shaw for the second weekend in a row. The film held on quite well in its second weekend, dipping just -51% for an estimated $25.4 million sophomore frame and a domestic cume that now stands at $108.5 million.

Internationally, Hobbs & Shaw added another $60.8 million internationally, pushing its overseas cume to $224.1 million for a global tally that now tops $332 million as it enters its second week in release.







In the runner up position is where we find the first of the weekend's five new wide releases in CBS Films, eOne and Lionsgate's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

The PG-13 thriller topped pre-weekend expectations and delivered an estimated $20.8 million this weekend.







Disney's The Lion King ended up in third place, delivering an estimated $20 million. The film's domestic cume now stands at $473 million as it enters its fourth weekend in release.

The film's international cume now totals $861.5 million for a global tally reaching $1.334 billion, topping Beauty and the Beast ($1.263b) to become the highest grossing film among Disney's "live-action" reimaginings not to mention the 12th highest grossing worldwide release of all-time.







Paramount's release of Dora and the Lost City of Gold saw the live-action adaptation of the animated Nickelodeon series debut with an estimated $17 million. The film received an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences.

Internationally, Dora debuted in 11 overseas markets this weekend with an estimated $2.5 million. Leading the way was Russia with an estimated $878,000 opening. The film will continue to expand internationally over the next few months ending with a November 7 release in Brazil.







Rounding out the top five is Sony's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, dipping -42% as it entered its third week in release with an estimated $11.6 million.

The film's domestic cume now stands at just over $100 million.







Just outside the top five is where we find Fox's release of The Art of Racing in the Rain. The drama debuted in 2,765 locations and finished on the lower end of expectations with an estimated $8.1 million. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences.

Internationally, the film launched in just ~16% of the overseas marketplace with an estimated $1.1 million with debuts in Brazil and the United Kingdom accounting for roughly half that figure. The film will continue to launch internationally throughout the year culminating in an early December release in France.







Right behind it is Warner Bros. and New Line's The Kitchen, which fell well below even the lowest of expectations, bringing in an estimated $5.5 million from 2,745 theaters.

The film entered the weekend as the worst reviewed feature among new releases and came away with a "B-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences.







And rounding out the top ten is Fathom and Trafalgar's release of Bring the Soul: The Movie, a new documentary feature centered on South Korean boy band BTS.

The film began playing in theaters on August 7 and this weekend, playing in 873 locations, estimates have it edging out A24's The Farewell for a place in the top ten with an estimated $2.29 million and a domestic cume that now totals over $4.4 million after five days in release.







Just outside the top ten is Bleecker's release of Brian Banks, which finished pretty much right on expectations with an estimated $2.1 million from 1,240 locations.

In limited release, Roadside's The Peanut Butter Falcon opened in 17 locations with an estimated $205,236 ($12,108 PTA); Amazon's One Child Nation opened in two theaters with an estimated $22,244; and Sony Classics debuted After the Wedding in five theaters with an estimated $57,124 ($11,425 PTA).
