I’m only focusing on Doctor Strange in this post. I’ll cover the rest of the box office next.
Weekend Box Office Top 10 (Apr 29th-May 1st) / 3-Day Weekend Gross / Percent Change from Last Week / Weekend # / Distributor), Weekend Actuals: The Bad Guys / $16.2 million / -32% / Weekend 2 / Universal (DreamWorks) Sonic the Hedgehog 2 / $11.54 million / -26% / Weekend 4 / Paramount Pictures Fantastic […]
The Bad Guys looks to repeat its #1 spot from last weekend while Everything, Everywhere All at Once makes a last stand before Marvel comes to try and crash its party! Liam Neeson also debuts Memory, which will likely be a flash in the pan.
Meanwhile, Secrets of Dumbledore is definitely dead as a doornail, The Northman did better than expected, and Massive Talentis a pretty massive letdown.
The Bad Guys, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, and The Northman all have varying degrees of commercial viability, but maybe one can break out as all three enter the fray!
On the other hand, Everything, Everywhere, All at Once has an incredible expansion into the mainstream and is on track to become on of A24’s best performers!!
Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore is hoping to be a Wizarding World course-correction, but in all likelihood, its probably too late.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 proves the value of listening to your audience while Ambulance arguable does the same (by not doing so). Meanwhile, Morbius officially fails while The Lost City recovers some steam and Everything Everywhere makes a splashy wide debut!
While Sonic 2 looks to blow the doors off expectations, Morbius and Ambulance are falling like rocks. Meanwhile, the ladies of Lost City and Everything, Everywhere doing solid work.
Morbius finds itself in an odd situation of having done well enough not be an outright failure, but still not well enough to be a success. Elsewhere, films have higher drops than usual as the market shifts in anticipation of new wave of films.
