The Marvel machine continues to churn as “Spider-Man: Far From Home” not only deliver $92.5 million on its opening weekend, it also broke records, earning $185 million over its six-day Tuesday release, making it the biggest Tuesday release of all-time. Comparing six-days in release, that tops its predecessor, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” by over $30 million. With an average of $19,978 per 4,634 theaters, that was also enough to award it the POPCORN AWARD for the weekend. “Toy Story 4” fell to #2 with $33.8 million while “Yesterday” held on to its #3 position with $10 million, beating out “Annabelle Comes Home,” which earned $9.4 million. “Aladdin” rounded out the Top Five, earning $7.5 million, bringing its worldwide total to over $921 million and officially making it the highest grossing film starring Will Smith throughout his entire career. Just outside the Top Five was Ari Aster’s follow-up to “Hereditary,” titled “Midsommar,” which opened to $6.5 million, which makes it the largest Indie opening of the year. Neon’s “Wild Rose” was able to earn the GOLDEN PERCENTAGE AWARD by jumping up eight spots to #22 and an increase of +251.4%.

“The Last Black Man in San Francisco” jumped two spots to #18 in its fifth weekend while the documentary “Echo in the Canyon” jumped up four spots to #19 in its seventh weekend. “Shaft,” “Late Night,” and “Pokemon: Detective Pikachu” were able to hold on to their spots of #14, #15, and #21. “Dark Phoenix” continues its steep descent, dropping another five spots to #17 while “The Dead Don’t Die” and “The Other Side of Heaven 2: Fire of Faith” both fell six spots to #24 and #25. Earning a BOMB for the weekend by dropping ten spots was Luc Besson’s “Anna” in its third weekend. It now only has $7.2 million on a $30 million production budget and internationally it has only made $8.1 million, setting it up for a quite a big loss. Falling off the List complete was “A Dog’s Journey” in its eighth weekend as it was predicted to fall off after barely hanging on last weekend. “The Biggest Little Farm” was the documentary to fall off, as either it or “Echo In The Canyon” were predicted to fall. And lastly, “Ma” in its sixth weekend fell off. But having already made $40.1 million over its production budget, it did not suffer.

Next weekend, the Box Office will belong to “Spider-Man: Far From Home” for another weekend, with nothing big enough to challenge it. However, the following weekend, Walt Disney’s latest live action remake, “The Lion King,” will take control with what should be the second biggest opening weekend of the year. Before that, “Stuber” will open next weekend and is being predicted to land at $17 million, which might be enough to beat “Toy Story 4” if it were to fall 50% or more. Also opening next weekend is the natural disaster thriller “Crawl,” which is aiming for a $15 million opening which also puts it in contention with beating “Toy Story 4.” My prediction is “Toy Story 4” stave off a 50% drop and beat out both newcomers, which will probably open slightly lower than their projections. “21 Bridges” starring Chadwick Boseman could make some sort of an impact but has no projections at the moment. Expect “Anna” to follow up its BOMB by falling off the List as well as “The Other Side of Heaven 2: Fire of Faith” taking a final drop off of #25.
