“Toy Story 4” was the clear winner of the Box Office, bringing in another $59.7 million this weekend. That was only a -50.6% and earning an average of $13,049 in 4,575 theaters was enough to earn it the POPCORN AWARD for the second weekend in a row. Newcomer “Annabelle Comes Home” opened in second place with $20.2 million while “Yesterday” debuted in third place with $17 million. “Annabelle Comes Home” was $11 million shy of its projections while “Yesterday” surprised its projections by $7 million. Eyes were on “Avengers: Endgame” over the weekend, as Walt Disney made a final push for the film to overtake the all-time box office record held by “Avatar.” By re-releasing the Avengers film with a small scene added and some other extras to try and get people to see the movie again, they had hoped it would be enough to overtake James Cameron’s film, but unfortunately, “Avatar” still sits with $2.78 billion worldwide while “Avengers: Endgame” only just reached $2.76 billion. The film received a slight bump, increasing +207.3% and earning the GOLDEN PERCENTAGE AWARD but with a home video release by the end of the month, an all-time record could end up being a losing battle. The only other new release on the List this weekend was faith-based film “The Other Side of Heaven 2: Fire of Faith,” earning just over $450,000.

“Avengers: Endgame” was actually the only film to move up the List this week. “The Secret Life Of Pets 2” stayed put at #5, surpassing “Men In Black International,” but otherwise, every other film on the List went down. Going down more than any other film was last week’s release, the remake of “Child’s Play” which fell six spots to #8. In its sixth week, “Booksmart” was the only bigger drop this week, with a five spot deficit. No information was available for “Brightburn,” so in its sixth weekend, it was presumed closed and that it had fallen off the List as predicted. It has already surpassed its production budget, domestically by $11.3 million and internationally by $25.4 million. “Dumbo” and “Shazam” both feel off the List as predicted as well. “Dumbo” had hit home video last week, so it really was no surprise. The film did not quite earn its money back domestically but took in $181.8 million over budget worldwide. “Shazam!” had a worldwide haul of $264.1 million.

With “Spider-Man: Far From Home” set to dominate the Box Office next weekend, studios are simply not putting any films against it. Right now projections put the Infinity Saga closer at $120 million for the three-day total. “Hereditary” director Ari Aster has a new horror film releasing, titled “Midsommar,” but no projections were available at the time of this posting, so do not expect too much to change within the List. “A Dog’s Journey” barely held on this weekend, so kiss that goodbye next weekend as well as either “Echo In The Canyon” or “The Biggest Little Farm,” which could be taking a hit after their sixth and eighth weeks respectively.
