As we reported yesterday, Ghostbusters: Afterlife is going better than predicted this weekend. It doesn’t break any records, but its unpredictable $ 44 million opening was easily enough to get it to number one on the box office charts of the weekend. You’ll ask, so we checked: this is less than what Ghost hunters (2016) Made on the opening weekend, but not much less. Save this information for every stupid internet fight you want to wage.
After that is Marvels Eternal, which fell pretty far to $ 10 million this weekend. That’s a solid drop, but the film is still at $ 135 million after three weeks. Some of these other movies would kill for that kind of money … like, say, Clifford the big red dog, which raised just $ 8 million this weekend and has a total of $ 33 million.
The next one (or should we say “the next two” because Will Smith says so in the trailer?) Is King Richardwhich brought in a not-so-great $ 5.7 million. The movie is currently available on HBO Max, so there’s a chance it could eat up its potential winnings, much like it did when it came in fifth dune. It made $ 3 million this weekend and is nearly at $ 100 million, so IIt’s likely to hit that mark, but the box office is notoriously unpredictable these days. (Experts thought Ghostbusters: Afterlife would make less than $ 40 million, but it mattered a little more!)
The rest of the top 10 are unremarkable (who wants to hear about it Poison: Let there be slaughter for an eighth week in a row?), but there’s something interesting about falling back to 17th place. Find Mike Mills’ C’mon C’mon, a film that isn’t about that the theme song too save me. It made $ 134,447 which is very little, but it just did five Screens. That’s an average of more than $ 26,000 per screen, and we were impressed a month ago if The French shipping got $ 25,000 per screen.
if C’mon C’mon expands as far as Ghostbusters: Afterlife and keeping that average (which is impossible and never will) it will … make even less money than it does itself Eternal deserved. Hollywood is brutally. Nevertheless, this information comes from Checkout Mojo, and you can go there for more detailed numbers.
