Toy Story 4: Dominates Box-Office

After making $118 million in its inaugural weekend and topping more than $167 million in its first six days, Toy Story 4 continues to dominate the domestic box office, heading toward an estimated $55.9 million second weekend.

This is only slightly behind “Toy Story 3,” which grossed about $59 million during its sophomore weekend.

New Line’s “Annabelle Comes Home earned $6.6 million in Friday ticket sales for an estimated $19.2 million three-day finish and a $30 million six-day total.   That’s in line with early estimates. which placed the film within the $30 million range.

But it does mark the “Conjuring” franchise’s worst opening ever.  Previously, “Annabelle: Creation” held the title with a $35 million three-day opening in 2017.

With a $27 million production cost, the film is still on track to turn a profit, especially overseas with international ticket sales to boost revenue.

The film is the third “Annabelle” title about the infamous possessed doll and the seventh entry in the “Conjuring” universe, which also includes recent box office success “The Nun.”

Universal’s Yesterday is performing above expectations with $6 million in domestic ticket sales for an estimated $16.7 million opening weekend, despite mixed reviews.  Early estimates originally placed Danny Boyle’s film at around $10 million.

Yesterday stars newcomer Himesh Patel as an aspiring songwriter who skyrockets to superstardom after a freak accident leaves him as the only person who remembers the Beatles.

Kate McKinnon and Ed Sheeran are also starring.
