Weekend Box Office Report: 'Storks' Keeps Hovering, 'Trolls' Incoming
We're now in the final stretch, before the holiday season kicks off next weekend. Everything winds down, while other movies are winding up...
Down just 30% in its last weekend all to itself, Storks is making it to the seven-oh. It should settle for a decent $75-77 million domestic haul when all is said and done. Worldwide, it is now at $153 million, barely double the budget. Hopefully it lands closer to $200 million soon.
That's the only animated picture in the Top 10 right now. Bubbling far below at #25 is The Secret Life of Pets, at $366 million domestically and $868 million worldwide. Watch the sequel break a billion in summer 2018.
Kubo and the Two Strings saw a nice 100% rise, it has one more weekend then the Blu-ray hits (alongside Sausage Party, both on Election Day), it's at $47 million here and $67 million around the world. The film is LAIKA's lowest-grossing, but that doesn't matter. They have the clout to keep doing these films.
Finding Dory is still at $485 million here, but at $1,021 million worldwide. Just two millions away from topping Zootopia as biggest animated movie of the year. It's really rocking in territories like Germany, it seems!
Sausage Party is pretty much done, $97 million domestically and $136 million worldwide. Expect more sequel announcements soon.
Trolls spiked a little overseas, it's now at $61 million, indicating that the new DreamWorks film could be saved by other countries if the stateside gross is not up to par. At this point I see it missing $100 million domestically, but who knows. I still think they threw away an opportunity by not releasing it in mid-October here in the states, when that field was arguably wide open.
How do you think next weekend will go?
