Zeroing in on the biggest Box Office of All-Time, currently held by “Avatar,” Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” takes the crown for the third weekend in a row, with another $63.2 million domestically. That brings its worldwide total to $2.48 billion, with the All-Time record held at $2.78 billion. “Pokemon: Detective Pikachu” opened on the low end of its projections at $54.3 million while “The Hustle” failed to open at its projected $15 million, debuting at only $13 million instead. Still, it was enough to land them at second and third place respectively. “Poms” was projected to open around $9 million, but could only muster $5.3 million, landing it at the #6 spot. “Tolkien” even landed in the Top Ten with $2.2 million. Bollywood film “Student Of The Year 2” around $460,000 and “Biggest Little Farm” debuted at the #25 spot with around $110,000. In only five theaters, that was enough to make the documentary the POPCORN AWARD winner, earning an average of $22,098 per theater. The Chinese film “Shadow” earned a ROCKET by jumping up twenty-four spots to the #24 spot, as well as earning the GOLDEN PERCENTAGE AWARD with a +360.3% increase in its second weekend.

Ralph Fienne’s “The White Crow” was the only other film to move up this weekend, moving up one spot to #21. Five films took the steep fall of five more spots, including “Captain Marvel,” after its small resurgence at the hands of “Avengers: Endgame.” Also falling was “Us,” “Pet Sematary,” and Disneynature’s “Penguins,” as well as “El Chicano,” in its second weekend of release. Three films that were projected to fall off the List last weekend fell off, including “Five Feet Apart” and “Ask Dr. Ruth.” “Kalank” was another of those titles which officially closed out its domestic release this weekend. Another film that closed its release was Paramount’s “Wonder Park,” which had only been in release for nine weeks. More surprisingly was Laika’s “Missing Link” falling off the List after only five weeks, currently putting it at an -$83 million deficit domestically. Also falling off was “The Mustang,” after nine weeks, and “After,” which was released five weeks ago.

Next weekend should finally end the reign of “Avengers: Endgame,” with “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” eyeing a $38.5 million debut. Since “Endgame” fell over 50% this week, if it does so again next weekend, it’s looking at a fourth weekend of around $31.6 million or lower, making it a #2 finisher. The big question over the next few weeks is whether or not “Avengers: Endgame” can add over $300 million to its worldwide total as to surpass the record held by “Avatar.” Considering it still has plenty time in theaters, I believe that by the end of its run, it will have surpassed the record. “A Dog’s Journey” aims for a $13 million debut while “The Sun Is Also a Star” will try for an $8.5 million debut. Once again, the films on the bottom of the List will be the most vulnerable for falling off. Disneynature’s “Penguins” fell fast this week and is reaching the bottom of the List. “Shadow” might not stick around very long after jumping so high in its second weekend. And, “The Biggest Little Farm” might not have very much staying power and could easily be knocked off next weekend.
