Holding ground for its 2nd weekend is "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" earning another 29.4 million and now passes the 100 mil cume mark. On track to be in the 175 range domestic when it is all finished up. New at #2 is "Fantastic Four" earning 26.2 mil. Below overall expectations but still a decent number despite all of the bad reviews on the film. This may be a fast burn at the box office which we have not seen in awhile for a Marvel title. New at #3 is "The Gift" from the new studio STX. Earning an OK opening of 12 mil and should also be a quick burn out. Hanging on to #4 is "Vacation" with another 9.2 mil as this road trip quickly comes to an end. Rounding off the top 5 is "Ant-Man" with another 7.8 mil in its 4th week and crawling to 150 mil which it should get soon.
New movies that did not make the top 5:
Two this week with the first being "Ricki and the Flash" in at #7 and with only 7 mil to open. Fairly close to expectations so nothing surprising there. In at #11 is "Shaun the Sheep" with only 4 mil to open on such a wide release pattern. Way below expectations but the marketing was very small on this film.
New movies next week:
Three new films coming up and something for just about everyone. First up is a sort of retro-spy film TV remake of "Man from U.N.C.L.E." with about 2500 screens and should open in the low 20's. Up next is a long awaited telling of "Straight Outta Compton" with about 2500 screens as well. Another film from Universal that looks like it will hit the charts high and should do north of 30 million to open. Up next is "Underdogs" for the kids but it is uncertain if this film will actually release or not. If it does, expect it to be under 12 mil.
