Toy Story 4 Remains #1 at the box office, Avengers can’t catch Avatar
Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 held onto the #1 spot at the domestic box office, bringing in $57.9 million and giving it a US total of $236.9 million and putting it just behind Toy Story 2’s domestic total of $245.8 million ($377.84 with inflation). Internationally the sequel took in $80.6 million for an international total of $259.6 million and a global total of $496.5 million (again, right behind Toy Story 2’s worldwide total of $497.4 million worldwide ($764.59 with inflation adjustments)). Disney now has the four highest openings and the four highest grossing movies of 2019 with Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, Aladdin, and Toy Story 4.
Annabelle Comes Home opened in second place for the weekend, bringing in $20.37 million, the lowest opening for a Conjuring movie to date. The film did open early however, with preview screenings on Tuesday, June 25, and now sits at $31.2 million domestically (a total that puts it more in line with the other two Annabelle movies, but still down from its predecessors). The film may have seen some of its business cannibalized by Child’s Play, or simply franchise fatigue from audiences. Internationally, Annabelle Comes Home brought in $21.1 million for a worldwide total of $52.3 million.
Danny Boyle’s Beatles-inspired movie Yesterday opened with an estimated $17 million, giving Boyle the highest opening of his career. With an A- Cinemascore, the musical romcom will likely have good legs for the rest of the summer.
Disney’s Aladdin slipped into fourth place in its sixth week, but still managed $9.3 million in the US and another $24.4 million internationally. Domestically the film crossed the $300 million mark, sitting at $305.9 million, and now sits at $568.3 million internationally for a global total of $874.2 million. Aladdin remains the #3 film worldwide for 2019 (behind Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel), and is almost assuredly the surprise hit of the summer.
Universal Pictures and llumination’s The Secret Life of Pets 2 held onto fifth place, bringing in $7.09 million for a domestic total of $131.2 million. Internationally the animated sequel now sits at $91.8 million with a worldwide total of $223 million. The first Secret Life of Pets movie brought in $875.5 million globally, over 3.5 times the total gross of the sequel thus far.
Elsewhere at the box office:
Spider-Man: Far From Home is already serving up supreme box office hauls internationally, bringing in $111 million from China, Japan, and Hong Kong alone. It opens in US theaters on July 2.
Lionsgate’s John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum crossed a box office milestone, with its worldwide total not sitting at $303.6 million.
Avengers: Endgame brought in $7.5 million globally, pushing it within $27 million of Avatar’s global box office total, a feat it will unlikely be able to cross now without even more help.
Child’s Play crashed and burned, falling 69.7% and going from second place to eighth. The film brought in $4.2 million for a domestic total of $23.4 million, a decent total for the $10 million reboot, but well below the other Chucky movies when inflation adjustments are factored in (even the last one to be released in theaters, 2004’s Seed of Chucky).
