‘Ultron’ Has Super Second Weekend At $77.7M; ‘Hot Pursuit’ Opens To $13.9M – Final Box Office

Originally posted on Deadline:

Final update, Monday, 2:50 PM: In its second weekend, Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron hauled in another $77.7M, which ended up being a 59% drop in its second frame. That is actually a strong hold considering that 15% of its first weekend gross came from the action hero cluster flick’s $27.5M Thursday preview. Opening in the No. 2 spot was Warner Bros.’ female buddy comedy Hot Pursuit turned in a little better Sunday than expected with weekend final of $13.9M.

Next weekend will be action-packed as Mad Max: Fury Road with Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron revs into theaters competing head to head with Pitch Perfect2 which is getting a significant amount of interest from the young female demo. Actually, right now, the audience make-up is quite similar, but the girls just may give Max a lesson in how opening weekend is done.

Here are the final grosses for this…

Avengers: Age of Ultron review

As John Heywood once said, “Rome wasn’t built in a day”. Of course in this case, Rome would be the equivalent of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The end goal of Marvel Studios was to get these heroes to team up for the very first time and create this universe. The idea to team up all these heroes together after each of them getting their own film was never heard of. Sure the first X-Men or Fantastic Four films featured a team of heroes, but they’re origins pegged them together. In the case of 2012’s The Avengers, it was an idea that many were skeptical of every happening. It wasn’t until 2008 at the end of the original Iron Man when Samuel L. Jackson wanted to talk about the Avengers initiative. The rest is history as Marvel’s The Avengers not only worked, but soared both critically and financially. So, how do you top that? Naturally you must get bigger and set higher stakes which is what Joss Whedon does with Avengers: Age of Ultron. The film isn’t perfect by any means nor is it Marvel’s best yet but it is great and definitely better than its predecessor.

Since the events of The Avengers, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) seems obsessed with the black hole he threw a nuclear missile into to save New York and nearly died in, and wants to protect the world without having to fight. Stark and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) decide to create this Artificial Intelligent being named Ultron (voiced by James Spader) whose sole mission is to keep the world at peace. Unfortunately, this mission is taken in a different way as Ultron believes that the only way to achieve peace would be to end the human race. This forces the Avengers to assemble (sorry…) with Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) Iron Man, Hulk, and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) again.

Avengers Age of Ultron

I’m going to be upfront here and say that while a lot of people loved the first Avengers film, I wasn’t one of them. I liked it a lot and own it even. Nevertheless, I felt that at times it wasn’t all that great like many thought it was. That film didn’t balance all the characters as well as I’d like and takes a while to kick start. In Age of Ultron, the film decides to kick start the action from the get-go. The action sequence is great as they attempt to fight this Hydra army in the forest, yet I felt like I needed more of an explanation there. This felt a little too quick to jump start but that’s simply a nitpick.

My real issue with the film is that the film feels too episodic, rather than feeling like a movie. This is really an issue with the MCU as a whole and unfortunately Avengers: Age of Ultron suffers a bit from that. The little moments that I loved from the first Avengers film aren’t as abundant. There are nice moments that further Hawkeye, Black Widow and Banner but the newcomers, Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor Johnson) don’t get much other than a few moments of dialogue explaining their origins. They simply feel like pawns and never really add much in terms of character until the 3rd act. The other big issue I had was the Banner and Natasha romance as none of the previous films gave any sort of hints to this idea and it’s not even in the comics. It feels too forced at times, but there is a sense that since both of them are misfits in their own ways, that they would make a decent pair. Some won’t mind it but I just really get with this romance.

avengers age of ultron

The titular character, Ultron is wonderfully portrayed by James Spader who gives him a very charming personality. Ultron doesn’t seem to be that menacing villain who just wants to kill humanity, he is essentially Tony Stark gone evil. It’s noted that his personality lines up with Stark, which is a nod to the relationship between Stark, the creator and Ultron, his creation. The trailers all gave off this much darker vibe with Ultron as the villain, but ultimately it’s not that much darker. Granted it is much darker than the 1st film but nowhere near the darkness that DC movies seem to be. The only real issue I had with the titular villain would be that his origins felt rush. Once he becomes Ultron, I thought he was great but during the creation of Ultron and his birth, it never felt as organic as I’d like. Plus the situation with Ultron also brings up bigger, darker questions with the impact technology (i.e. Social Media, cell phones, laptops) has on our everyday life and whether humanity is actually hurting the world around us. The first film was simply a fun B-movie with the child-like admiration of putting all these heroes together but Whedon attempts to ask deep questions in this giant blockbuster.

The film’s action sequences are much better this time around as the beginning and final battles feature a one shot like sequence. Each action sequence never feels repetitive yet there is a sense of exhaustion with each battle. The Hulk vs Hulk-buster sequence and the final battle are pretty great and they also manage to say something to the Man of Steel lovers about saving the people during these battles. And the entire Avengers crew bounces off each other well, showing that the series has grown since the first time we saw all these guys grace the big screen.

Ultimately, Avengers: Age of Ultron is a worthy successor to its predecessor and for me, it’s better. The film has its issues and feels a bit rushed in the beginning but it’s a very entertaining, well-balanced blockbuster that never overstays its welcome. It does feel a bit episodic at times but that’s the after effects of the entire MCU. As a Marvel film, of course you have those moments that have to set up the future of the series and some never feel out of place while others do. If you are a big marvel fan, you’ll love it. If you aren’t, this movie won’t win you over. Ultimately, it’s great way to kick off the summer movie season and is better than the last 2 summer kick-off films as well.

Box Office Numbers: ‘Avengers’ delivers huge $191 million domestically & crosses $631 million worldwide [UPDATED

[UPDATE: Avengers: Age of Ultron final numbers came in and the superhero sequel actually earned more than estimated with $191.2 million domestically. Worldwide, the new Marvel film has earned $631.1 million with $439.8 million coming internationally.]

The summer box office was kicked off by a huge bang as Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron earned $187.7 million in its domestic debut. While it’s lower than its predecessor’s debut of $207 million, this is still the 2nd highest domestic opening of all time. While some may be disappointed it didn’t crack $200 million, it’s still huge that Marvel earned this much despite all the sporting events of the weekend. Saturday’s boxing match of Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao, the Kentucky Derby, and the NBA playoffs featuring Game 7 between the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers impacted Ultron ‘s Saturday gross which ultimately led to the film falling short of the $200 million. Worldwide, Marvel’s blockbuster sequel has earned $631 million since it debut in some international markets last weekend and has earned $439 million internationally. Overall, the box office was up big time from last year when Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 debuted.

Everyone knew which movie would take the top spot but the question was always how high could Ultron reach. After debuting on Friday with the 2nd highest opening day in Domestic box office history, $84.4 million, many figured it could reach $225 million. Some pegged it for a low of $210 million but no one really thought it wouldn’t surpass the $200 million mark. Yet here we are as Disney is projecting a $191.2 million opening. This ranks as the 2nd highest grossing weekend of all time and Marvel now owns the 3 highest opening weekends with Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Iron Man 3 ($174 million).

The question going forward here is if Ultron will surpass the domestic totals of Avengers and it doesn’t look likely. With much stiffer competition on paper in Pitch Perfect 2, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Tomorrowland as compared to 2012 with Dark ShadowsBattleship, and Men in Black 3 it doesn’t seem likely that Ultron will surpass the $623 million finish of its predecessor. Plus, critics didn’t love the sequel as much as the original (92% fresh on RT compared to 75% fresh on RT for the sequel). Nevertheless, audiences loved Ultron with an A on Cinemascore and 90% approval rating from audiences on RT.  Still, it will likely finish around $560-$580 million if it plays out like its predecessor with $1.6 billion worldwide and end up being 2015’s biggest summer movie.

As for the rest of the box office, the 4 time champ Furious 7 finally saw its reign fall with Ultron debuting. The 7th installment earned $6.4 million, falling 62% from last weekend. The box office juggernaut has earned $331 million domestically and still looks on course to finish with $350 million. Internationally, the film has earned $1 billion and has earned $1.3 billion worldwide and will likely surpass The Avengers worldwide total of $1.5 billion.

In 3rd was last weekend’s newcomer, The Age of Adaline which fell 53% from last weekend. The Blake Lively film earned $6.2 million and has earned $23.4 million since its debut. The romantic period piece will finish its run with $40 million as it faces competition next weekend in the form of Hot Pursuit.

The only newcomer that didn’t involve superheroes was Far From the Maddening Crowd as the Fox Searchlight film had a solid debut in limited release. The film earned $164,985 in 10 theatres with an average of $16,499, according to Box Office Mojo.

Next weekend will likely continue the reign of Ultron as it will likely take the top spot once again. The challengers will come in the form of Hot Pursuit which will try to play as counterprogramming for the female demographic as compared to Avengers. Good luck trying to take Marvel’s crown for a few weekends. The only challenger that may come close will be either Mad Max: Fury Road or Pitch Perfect 2 or may take until Disney’s own Tomorrowland.

Furious 7

Box Office Numbers: ‘Furious 7′ threepeats & crosses $1 billion Worldwide

The Fast crew is still revving up and burning records. It took about 17 days for Furious 7 to earn $1 billion worldwide, the fastest in box office history (no pun intended). The film three-peated this weekend with newcomers Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and Unfriended settling for 2nd and 3rd respectively. Meanwhile in limited release,  Ex Machina saw an increase of 35 theaters and had the best average of the weekend. While the James Franco-Jonah Hill film True Story opened to the 11th spot and the Tom Hardy-Gary Oldman film Child 44 flat out flopped in limited release.

There isn’t really much else to say about the latest Fast and Furious film as it continues its reign. The film earned $29.1 million with a 51% decline. Furious 7 has earned $294.4 million domestically and will surpass the $300 million mark very soon. With not much competition next week, it’s a safe bet that Furious 7 takes the top spot and likely passes the $320 million mark. The buzz around this 7th installment is just unheard of. Furious 7 has earned $857.8 million overseas with China being the biggest market. Furious 7 has earned $245.9 million in China and will likely end its run as the highest grossing film in China, surpassing last summer’s Transformers: Age of Extinction. The film’s record breaking run featured only 16 days before surpassing the $1 billion barrier. However that record might not stand by the end of the year with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens lurking.

The newcomers Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and Unfriended had solid debuts in 2nd and 3rd, respectively. Paul Blart earned $23.7 million over the weekend, falling short of its predecessor’s $31.8 million debut. Paul Blart earned pretty bad feedback from critics with a rare 0% (yes, ZERO PERCENT) on RT. Audiences were a bit more forgiving but not by much with a B- from CinemaScore and 53% fresh on Flixster. It’s likely that the film finishes its run around $60 million with competition coming from Avengers knocking it out.

Unfriended earned $15.8 million this weekend for a spot in 3rd. Unfriended had a bit better luck with critics as it earned a 64% on RT but audiences didn’t care for it with a C on CinemaScore and 51% on Flixster. The horror flick costs only $1 million for Universal and Blumhouse Production. Similar to a lot of Blumhouse films, this was another cheap horror movie that made back most of its budget very quickly. Yet with most horror flims burning out after the first weekend, this looks to stay with that trend. Unfriended will likely finish around $35 million by the end of its run.

Another newcomer, Monkey Kingdom had a decent debut in 8th as the Disneynature film earned $4.5 million in 7th place. Disney usually releases a nature documentary around this time every year, usually in honor of Earth Day. In limited release, the much buzzed about Ex Machina expanded to more theaters this weekend and had the best average of any movie this weekend. The sci-fi film earned $20,872 in 36 theaters. The film will go wide next weekend.

The other newcomers, True Story and Child 44 had issues. True Story had a decent debut in 11th this weekend despite staring James Franco & Jonah Hill. The duo have had their share of hits together but this time they took things seriously. The film didn’t do big business which should be a bit of a concern going forward. As for Child 44, that movie flat out bombed this weekend. The expensive period piece staring Tom Hardy & Gary Oldman earned $621,812 in 510 theaters. The Hardy led film had a budget of $50 million and was ravaged by critics with only 24% on RT.

Next weekend will see two newcomers in the form of Little Boy and The Age of Adaline. The weekend will also see the wide expansion of the critical acclaimed sci-fi film, Ex Machina. Still, it’s likely Furious 7 takes one final lap in first next weekend with only 1 week left until the summer movie season arrives with Marvel’s finest.

‘Batman v Superman’ teaser trailer

Unless you live under a rock, hate comic book movies or you really do not care, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is coming next year. Fans have been waiting for a very long time to see iconic characters Batman and Superman on the same screen for the 1st time ever. The release for the 1st trailer for BvS has been speculated for months as rumors that it would be attached to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Jupiter Ascending, or even a potential Super Bowl spot. Last Wednesday, Warner Bros had a crazy idea to release a 20 second trailer teaser announcing a special IMAX release of the trailer on April 20. Then everything changed last night as somebody leaked the full trailer and sent social media abuzzed. So this incident has forced their plans to change and the trailer has officially been released.

The trailer is clearly going for a much darker and gritty then anything Marvel related (except of course the Daredevil show). The events of Man of Steel where Metropolis was essentially destroyed was met with controversy with fans asking “Why not address the destruction?”, well this is why. Those events have caused many to question if Superman (Henry Cavil) can be trusted and if he is really a good guy. This ultimately forces Batman (Ben Affleck) to investigate whether Superman is worth trusting. 

  

The trailer gives us a brief but good look at Affleck in the Batsuit and he looks great. The jury is still out if he’ll end up being a good Batman but he looks the part. The Iron-Batsuit and the regular Batsuit look ripped right out of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. We also get a brief line from Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor but no footage of the businessman in action. The trailer ends with Batman in his Iron Batsuit staring at Superman as the two prepare for battle, similar to the comic con footage. The issue I have with the trailer is that it looks so bleak that it may be a bit of a turn-off for some. Plus Snyder isn’t very trustworthy as a director at this point.

Overall, the teaser was solid as Batfleck looks great in the cowl but Zack Snyder is notorious for having great trailers for his movies. Man of Steel is a solid movie but it isn’t as good as the trailers made it out to be. That’s the same case for Snyder’s Sucker Punch (which turned out to be a terrible film), 300 (a mediocre action flick), and Watchmen (a disappointing yet still decent movie). Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also stars Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy, and Diane Lane. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released March 25, 2016. The teaser trailer is below.

Furious 7

Box Office Numbers: ‘Furious 7′ cruises to a 2nd straight win

As expected, Furious 7 has won the weekend box office once again. After a record breaking debut, the seventh installment of the Fast and Furious held on pretty well and has now eclipsed Fast and Furious 6 for the title of the highest grossing Fast and Furious franchise, in only 10 days. There was only 1 newcomer this weekend, Nicholas Spark’s The Longest Ride which had a mediocre opening. The overall weekend box office was up from last year.

While it was expected that Furious 7 would take the top spot once again, many predicted a big fall. Most movies that open to $140+ million usually fall about 55-65% the next weekend. And it was pretty evident from last weekend that Furious 7 was going to be front-loaded. Furious 7 earned $60.6 million for a total of $252.5 million after 10 days. It’s obvious that the film is still riding high on buzz from the Paul Walker tribute. Wiz Khalifa’s new music video See You Again featured scenes from the ending of Furious 7 which may have kept interest high. Plus, the film didn’t have much competition as well.

Furious 7 has already surpassed the final totals for every film in the Fast and Furious series and should continue to dominate until Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives. The film’s 2nd weekend is already the 12th best in box office history. Furious 7 ‘s $252.2 million total has surpassed the fastest to $250 million in Universal Pictures history in 10 days (ahead of Despicable Me 2 ‘s 16 days) and is the 9th in Box Office History. At this point, I fully expect Furious 7 to finish its domestic run around $340-$350 million.

The newcomer of the weekend The Longest Ride had a very decent debut. The latest Nicholas Spark’s film earned $13.5 million, which would be Spark’s 6th best debut. The film stars up and comers Britt Robinson (who will be later seen in Disney’s Tommorowland) and Scott Eastwood (Clint Eastwood’s son) but they don’t have the star power of the Dear John duo (Channing Tatum & Amanda Seyfried) or the Lucky Ones duo (Zac Efron & Taylor Schilling). The film did have a better opening than Spark’s last film, The Best of Me but it’s clear that Spark doesn’t have the same impact on a project when his name is on it like it did 5 years ago.

Once again in 2nd was Dreamworks’ Home, the surprise hit of the year thus far. The Jim Parson-Rihanna family film earned $19 million, falling only 30% from last weekend. The film has earned $129.5 million so far and should surpass its budget of $135 million by next weekend. At this point, it’s ahead of fellow Dreamworks’ hits The Croods and How to Train Your Dragon 2 ($125.3 million & $121.9 million, respectively). While next weekend’s Paul Blart may provide some competition, Home should still finish around $160-$170 million

Next weekend will see the sequel to a movie some didn’t ask for in Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and the social media horror flick, Unfriended. The first Paul Blart was a surprise hit at the time, but since then star Kevin James has had a couple of disappointments in Zookeeper and Here Comes The Boom. Expect Unfriended to earn around $25 million with Paul Blart around $26 million, but each falling short of the two-time champ, Furious 7.

Box Office Numbers: ‘Furious 7′ burns rubber & records worldwide

The franchise built on speed just keeps getting bigger. The Fast and Furious series which was kicked off in 2001 with The Fast and the Furious saw their latest installment Furious 7 break several records. The Vin Diesel & Paul Walker led ensemble earned $147.1 million which is the highest opening weekend in April and the biggest opening weekend in franchise history. In fact, it has already eclipse The Fast and the Furious2 Fast 2 Furious and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and will soon eclipse Fast & Furious in terms of domestic box office. As for the rest of the box office, last weekend’s surprise hit Home held well in 2nd while the Will Ferrell & Kevin Hart film Get Hard felt the heat of Furious 7. Overall, the weekend was huge for the box office compared to last year.

It’s quite amazing to see a movie franchise go on for 7 movies but it’s even more rare for the newer installments are even bigger than the last. After The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift ‘s lackluster box office, the franchise was reinvented with the original cast returning for Fast & Furious. Since then, the next two films (Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6) surpassed each other at the box office.The latest installment, Furious 7 earned $147.1 million over the weekend and earned $67.3 million on Friday. That would be the 9th highest domestic opening weekend in box office history, only behind The AvengersIron Man 3, the final Harry Potter film, both Dark Knight films, the first two Hunger Games films and Spider-Man 3, very impressive for a 7th film. It also broke last year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier ‘s record for biggest opening weekend in April (Cap earned $95 million).

The film also earned $245 million internationally for a total of $392 million which would be only behind the final Harry Potter films and The AvengersFurious 7 received very positive feedback from both critics (82% on RT) and audiences (A on CinemaScore). With little to no competition until about May 1st with Ultron waiting to break many records, it’s likely Furious 7 finishes its run with $345-$350 million domestically. Worldwide, this will likely be the first film in the Fast and Furious franchise to break $1 billion and will likely prompt Fast and Furious 8 to be green-light quickly.

Clearly the film’s buzz was impacted by the tragic passing of star Paul Walker, who passed away in December 2013. The film was nearly cancelled after the news broke about Paul’s unfortunate accident but instead the cast & crew came together and made it work. The film was originally dated for July 2014 but instead was delayed to April 2015 to make everything with Paul Walker’s character work. Walker’s brothers, Cody and Caleb stood in for certain scenes for Paul’s character and mixed with CGI. Overall, the unfortunate passing of Walker did lead to more people being more curious on seeing his last film.

As for the rest of the box office, last weekend’s hit Home held well with $27 million, falling 48%. It has earned $95.2 million since last weekend and with little to no competition until Pixar’s Inside Out, expect Home to finish with $160-$170 million. The other film from last weekend, Get Hard did indeed fall hard with 61%. The film earned $13 million over the weekend, which means Furious 7 clearly impacted Get Hard. Despite staring A-listers Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, the film may not finish with $100 million as it has only earned $57 million since opening. Get Hard will likely finish around $90-$95 million at the end of its run.

The only other newcomer this weekend came in the form of Woman in Gold which only played in 258 theaters. The film will expand into more theaters in the coming weekends but this weekend, it debuted at number 7 and earned $2 million. According to Box Office Mojo, the film earned a theater average of $8,107 which would be only 2nd highest average of the top 10 this weekend behind only Furious 7.

Next weekend will see the debut of another Nicholas Sparks’ movie, The Longest RideFurious 7 should cruise to the top spot for at least the next few weekends. We only have about 3 weeks until Marvel kicks off the summer movie season with Avengers: Age of Ultron.
