No gigantic blockbusters opened over the weekend of June 29-July 1, which allowed “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” to top the box office chart for the second week in a row, followed once again by Disney-Pixar’s “Incredibles 2.” But what did that mean for the week’s biggest new release, the crime thriller “Sicario: Day of the Soldado” starring Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro?
“Jurassic World” dipped almost 60% in its second weekend, raking in another $60 million for a domestic total of $264 million thus far. Globally it’s closing in on the billion-dollar mark as its worldwide receipts add up to $932 million. The previous “Jurassic World” (2015) ended up with gargantuan hauls of $652 million domestic and $1.671 billion all across the globe.
“Incredibles 2” dipped modestly in its third week of release, slipping 43% to $45 million over the three-day period, bringing its domestic total to $439 million and its worldwide intake to $646 million. In just three weeks it has already exceeded the entire worldwide gross of the original “Incredibles” (2004), which took in $633 million globally.
With those two films continuing to dominate, the “Sicario” sequel had to settle for third place with an opening weekend gross of around $19 million. But of course expectations are quite different for the film given its modest production budget of $35 million. To compare, the original “Sicario” (2015) cost $30 million to make and grossed a total of $46 million domestic and $84 million worldwide. So “Soldado” is off to a solid start.
Rounding out this weekend’s top five were another debuting film, the comedy “Uncle Drew” ($15.5 million) and the fourth week of the heist film “Ocean’s 8” ($8 million). Did you go out to see any of this weekend’s top films? Discuss the latest movies and movie news here in our forums.
