Lots of movies opening this weekend. Here are the early numbers:





Weekend Report: ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ Starts with $2.35M; ‘Unsane’ Earns $300K
AUTHOR BOXOFFICE STAFF PUBLISHED MARCH 23, 2018 COMMENTS 0
Update: Universal reports this morning that Pacific Rim: Uprising earned a solid $2.35 million from Thursday night’s opening shows at 7pm in 2,850 theaters. That comes in 35 percent behind last year’s Power Rangers as well as the original 2013 Pacific Rim, each of which earned $3.6 million on Thursday evening. The sequel remains on target for a domestic opening in the mid-$20 million range as part of its global launch.

Steven Soderbergh’s Unsane opened to $300,000 last night, which is identical to the $300,000 earned by A Cure for Wellness last year.

Meanwhile, Sherlock Gnomes and Paul, Apostle of Christ did not hold Thursday night screenings. Numbers for Midnight Sun were not yet available at the time of this report but will be added over the weekend as they are confirmed.

Reigning champ Black Panther took in $2.1 million on Thursday overall, bringing its domestic cume to $614.2 million. The film will likely yield first place to Uprising for the first time in six weekends at the domestic box office. Globally, Marvel’s blockbuster phenom stands at $1.207.2 billion through Thursday.

Box Office: ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ Battles to $2.4 Million on Thursday Night

Sci-fi action tentpole “Pacific Rim Uprising” has opened with a solid $2.4 million at 2,850 North American locations on Thursday night.

Universal-Legendary’s “Pacific Rim Uprising” — the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 “Pacific Rim” — has been forecast to score between $22 million and $29 million as it expands to 3,708 locations at this weekend’s domestic box office. That will probably be enough to surpass Disney-Marvel’s blockbuster “Black Panther” following its stellar five-week reign at the top of the U.S. box office.

The original “Pacific Rim” — set in the near future and starring Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Charlie Hunnam — opened with $3.6 million in Thursday night previews on its way to a debut of $37 million domestically and wound up with $101.8 million. It went on to gross $411 million at the worldwide box office, led by $112 million in China.

“Pacific Rim Uprising” is set 10 years after the Battle of the Breach, with a new generation of Jaeger pilots ready to combat the evolving Kaiju monsters. John Boyega plays Jake Pentecost, the son of Elba’s character Stacker Pentecost, who sacrificed his life in the first film. Steven S. DeKnight co-wrote and directed “Pacific Rim Uprising” on a reported $150 million budget.

“Black Panther” should score around $15 million to $18 million at 3,834 locations, which would be among the top 10 highest-earning sixth weekends of all time. With a $614 million total in its first five weeks, it’s poised to pass “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and “The Avengers” this weekend to become the fifth-highest on that list, trailing only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Avatar,” “Titanic” and “Jurassic World.”

The opening of Paramount Pictures and MGM’s animated comedy “Sherlock Gnomes” will likely be battling “Black Panther” for second place, with forecasts in the range of $13 million to $18 million at 3,662 theaters. The family-friendly film, a sequel to 2011’s “Gnomeo & Juliet,” did not hold Thursday night previews.

Another animated film, Fox Searchlight Pictures’ “Isle of Dogs,” is opening in limited release in 27 theaters this weekend before expanding nationwide in the following weekends. Wes Anderson’s stop-motion animated film is set in a dystopian futuristic Japan where dogs have been quarantined on a remote island. “Isle of Dogs” carries a 92% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The second weekends of Alicia Vikander’s “Tomb Raider” and faith-based drama “I Can Only Imagine” are likely to battle for fourth place in the $10 million to $13 million range.

Three other new films are also opening nationwide this weekend with middling prospects. New indie distributor Global Road Entertainment, the successor to Open Road Films, is launching “Midnight Sun” with tracking for the young adult romantic drama at about $5 million at 2,173 theaters. The pic stars Bella Thorne as a teen who has been sheltered at home since childhood due to a life-threatening sensitivity to sunlight.

Sony is launching biblical drama “Paul, Apostle of Christ” through its Affirm Films label with wide-ranging estimates of $2 million to $7.5 million in 1,431 theaters over Palm Sunday weekend. The story follows James Faulkner as Saint Paul in his last days awaiting execution by Emperor Nero in Rome.

Steven Soderbergh’s thriller, “Unsane,” is expected to launch with around $3 million from 2,023 sites with Bleecker Street and Fingerprint handling the release. Claire Foy stars as a bright but troubled business woman who’s being stalked by her ex-boyfriend and inadvertantly winds up in a mental institution.

Among new releases, Sherlock Gnomes fell short of expectations in fourth place, taking in a disappointing $10.6 million in its debut frame. The Paramount-MGM co-production seems to have suffered from both a dismal critical reception and the fact that it took seven years to get the Gnomeo and Juliet sequel to the big screen. Its Disney-released predecessor opened to a much-healthier $25.3 million in 2011 and proved to be a relatively leggy title, allowing it to finish with just shy of $100 million domestically. It seems family audiences have moved on to other franchises in the years since, and that 19% score on Rotten Tomatoes clearly didn’t inspire many of those who turned out for the first movie to return for a second round.

It opened on a crowded weekend for new releases and I think Isle of the Dogs will be the critics/fans choice for animated in the long run.

Black Panther and Pacific Uprising are leading the way now.

Plus Ready Player One opens this weekend.

Elsewhere in the top ten, both Sherlock Gnomes and Love, Simon, held on well in their second and third weekends respectively. Sherlock Gnomes held on better than expected after a soft debut last weekend, delivering an estimated $7 million weekend, pushing the film's cume to $22.8 million while Love, Simon dropped 37% in its third weekend, finishing with $4.8 million for a domestic cume just over $32 million

Thanks for the update, Sweeney Todd. It must have killed them to include the “held on better than expected” bit! Of course, with the foreign tally of about 8 million, worldwide cume is 30 million plus. Not bad for a flick that had a stake driven through its heart before opening weekend was even over.
