"Maverick" could upset "Elvis" for #1 - Deadline

Distribution sources say there is a chance that Paramount/Skydance’s Top Gun: Maverick could top the box office with $32 million in its fifth session this weekend, down 28% week-on-week.

This will easily push the Tom Cruise film past the half-billion mark at the domestic box office; With more than 900 million US dollars worldwide, the picture is already the actor’s highest grossing of all time. Top gun 2 I’m told it continues to lead in advance ticket sales in the US.

Should Top gun 2 With over $30 million flying in, it will surpass Warner Bros.’ $85 million, led by Baz Luhrmann elvisthat eyes Over $20 millionand Universal/Blumhouse’s Scott Derrickson-directed R-rated horror film, valued at $16 million the black phone, what is blotchy $15M20 million dollars.

We mixed in the third weekend Jurassic World Dominionwho is looking around $29 millionDiscount of 51%, and the second weekend of Disney/Pixar light year, which is also expected to fall by 51% 25 million dollars.

The great news in all of this is the depth and diversity of the business and products at the box office; There is a chance that five films will gross more than $20 million apiece. It’s another great sign that going to the movies is still the most affordable form of entertainment, even in an inflation-driven economy. NRG also reported this week that 88% of all moviegoers feel very or somewhat comfortable going to the cinema, the highest score in the Covid-era. Comscore reported $165 million in all U.S. and Canada ticket sales this past weekend, up 21% from the same period in 2019. That remains the barometer year that will continue to determine when we fully recover from the box office blues of the pandemic to have.

Elvis Austin Butler

“Elvis”
Warner Bros.

elvis Despite a great reception of the world premiere in Cannes with the longest standing ovation of the film festival, he faces an uphill battle. As far as I know there is a discrepancy between definite interest and total awareness and unaided awareness of the film. The film is older and is 2 hours and 39 minutes long. Consider that someone who is 50 years old was 5 years old when Elvis Presley died.

Should elvis open for $20 million in 3,900 theaters, it would arguably be the biggest opening for an adult demo release of this duration during the pandemic (House Gucci was 2 hours and 38 minutes and debuted to a three-day total of $14.4 million). Among the non-franchise-wide entries aimed at adults, the lost city, opening at $30.4 million is the best we’ve seen during the pandemic. Are the die-hard Elvis fans coming out? The over-60s have been hard to reach during the pandemic. You could say they came out and they will Top Gun 2. Elvis is 83% certified freshness and thus above the Lurhmann value from 2013 The Great Gatsby (48% Rotten), which debuted at $50 million.

Some see a $30 million opening for elvis Even by Tom Hanks’ opening standards for his non-franchise adult films, that’s huge and would rank there with starts like sully ($35M), The soldier James Ryan ($31M) and Catch Me If You Can ($30 million) and ahead of the actor’s recent films A nice day in the neighborhood ($13.2M) and Captain Phillips ($25.7M).

Fever and AMC offered a sale on tickets worth $10.99 elvis. Warner Bros has promoted this film non-stop since Cannes, including a Graceland premiere, full support from the Presley family, and fantastic late-night performances from Austin Butler, who plays Elvis great on screen… and off too.

The black phone

“The Black Telephone”
Universal

The black phone hopes to excite the 17-34 crowd. The image is 85% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, which is healthy for a Blumhouse horror film on the Critical Aggregator site. Ethan Hawke plays a masked guy who kidnaps young children in the basement of his home. That is, until he kidnaps the fake child, who receives leads from the killer’s previous victims over a disconnected phone. The last major Blumhouse opening in recent memory, rated R and geared towards this teen demo, was pre-pandemic Ma, which debuted at $18 million in May 2019. That was only 56% Rotten. black phone‘s screenplay is by Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill (Doctor Strange,Creepy franchise), based on the award-winning short story by Joe Hill from hisNew York Timesbest seller Ghosts of the 20th Century.
