It’s a cruel summer at the box office this year. Avengers: Endgame may have started off the blockbuster season with loads of cash and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum may be surpassing its predecessors on the charts with great success, but most of the other sequels are crashing and burning spectacularly. And despite topping the box office this past weekend, Men in Black International is another one of those disappointments.
The Men in Black International box office debuted with only $28.5 million from a whopping 4,224 screens. That’s massively disappointing, especially since it’s a record-low opening for the Men in Black franchise. It’s even below what analysts expected for the movie, showing that audiences aren’t attracted to summer movies simply because they have previously established intellectual property involved.

According to the Spider-Man Far From Home box office tracking, the comic book movie could earn more than $150 million during the six-day holiday weekend.

Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 4 has broken the first of what could be many records, and it hasn’t even hit theaters yet. The upcoming sequel has already become the new record holder for best first day presales for an animated movie on Fandango, beating out another Pixar movie: last year’s Incredibles 2.
That superhero sequel shattered box office records with the highest opening weekend of any animated film ever and went on to become the second-highest grossing animated movie of all time behind Frozen. Now Toy Story 4 is announcing itself as a new contender for the crown. Read More »
The Memorial Day weekend box office gave audiences an extra day to catch new releases this weekend, and it seems like everyone was clamoring to see how Disney fared with their latest live-action remake of an animated classic.
Aladdin topped the weekend box office with a three-day opening weekend of $85 million. But when all is said and done for the four-day holiday weekend, the movie will have raked in $112.7 million. However, some estimates see the movie possibly hitting around $110.9 million, which would have it take the #5 spot of the biggest Memorial Day weekend openings from X-Men: Days of Future Past. But how did other new releases like Brightburn and Booksmart turn out? Find out in the rest of our box office report. Read More »

But word-of-mouth could help drive this sequel’s numbers.
