‘Everything, Everywhere’ Hits $40 Million, Survives ‘Multiverse Of Madness’

In Friday’s box office news it wasn’t about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, DreamWorks Animation Bad People earned another $2.3 million (-38%) on the third Friday for a possible $10.36 million (-36%). That would earn Universal’s $80 million caper animated comedy a domestic $58.162 million and (if the domestic/overseas split continues) $155 million worldwide. It will be in next week’s PVOD but lack of children’s films over the next month, along with Sam Raimi Doctor Strange 2 to be more than Drag me to hell PG-13 than a Spider-Man 3 PG-13, meaning films targeted at children must last for the next month. Dito Sonic the Hedgehog 2which earned $1.5 million (-41%) on Friday for a possible weekend of $6.8 million (-41%) and $170.5 million domestically and (if splitting applies from last Sunday) $345 million worldwide.

With Doctor Strange 2 play for older children and Downton Abbey: A New Era and Best Weapon: Maverick play for adults (Tom Cruise’s sequel is pretty kid friendly, but I don’t know if kids these days care about the sequel to the movie their parents loved in the summer of 1986), not much for young kids between now and (as good as- good) Jurassic World: Dominion on June 10 and Pixar’s light year on June 17th. Not quite profiting from this lack of children’s films is Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secretalthough it’s a much more kid-friendly film than Grindelwald’s Crimes. JK Rowling’s three prequels made $1.03 million (-52%) for a weekend odds of $3.9 million (-52%) and $86 million domestically and over/under $355 million worldwide. Having a fantasy magic PG-13 rival on the market doesn’t help.

Despite losing 1/3 of its screen and dealing with another multiverse movie, Everything, Everywhere at Once not quite collapse. The A24 release earned $951,212 on Friday (-39%). The film will surpass $40 million today for a possible $3.68 million (-32%) weekend in 1,542 theaters at a price tag of $42 million. It will pass Hereditary ($44 million) next weekend to become the third-largest domestic earner in the A24. Does it pass female bird ($49 million) and Uncut Gems ($50 million) is a matter of how it holds up over the next month. The yield was quite thin before Best Weapon: Maverick and Bob’s Burgers: The Movie on Memorial Day weekend. Even if Downton Abbey: A New Era play like Addams Family 2 (debuts $18 million after opening preliminaries of $33 million), I wouldn’t be surprised to see it rise again after Doctor Strange invade.

$70 million Robert Eggers Northerners will generate $2.91 million (-54%) in the third weekend for $28.2 million 17 days, while Lost City would earn $2.51 million (-34%) despite losing 698 theaters to earn $94.4 million. The Sandra Bullock/Channing Tatum rom-com adventure still had to crawl to $100 million domestically in the end. Nicolas Cage The Unbearable Burden of Great Talent will generate $1.56 million (-60%) on a poor income of $16.5 million over 17 days. Liam Neeson Storage down 68% on Friday to gross $360,000. That positions the Martin Campbell-directed actor for a weekend of $1.25 million (-60%) and a miserable ten-day total of $5.34 million. Batman lost 930 theaters in weekend ten, resulting in $27,000 (-87%) in just 202 auditoriums for the weekend of $105,000 (-86%) and $369.2 million. I guess putting it on HBO Max after 45 days is nominal theatrical ramifications.
