Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: July 15, 2012

Ice Age 4 tops the box office 570x307 Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: July 15, 2012

Ice Age: Continental Drift is set to top the box office over the weekend with an estimated $46 million take. That’s on a par with 2009’s Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs which scored $41 million, for a $196 million final total (the highest-grosser in the series). Time will tell if this franchise has life left, or if it is facing extinction – you get the drift?

The Amazing Spider-Man held-up well on its second weekend, dipping 44% . The $35 million weekend take means that the web-slinging adventure has now scored $200 million at the domestic box office. Globally the film has grossed more than $521 million. These are good numbers, but the film will fall short of the final grosses of the Sam Raimi/Tobey Maguire film at the domestic box office.

The Amazing Spider Man in second place Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: July 15, 2012

R-rated comedy hit Ted should greet Monday morning with an additional $22.1 million. That gives the Mark Wahlberg starrer an impressive $158.9 million cumulative gross.

Disney/Pixar’s Brave should bank $10.6 million over the three days, for a $195 million total. That means that the film is now on target to pass $200 million by next weekend, out-grossing Ratatouille’s $206 million final gross.

Magic Mike is on course to bank an additional $9 million, a number which would give the Channing Tatum/Matthew McConaughey starrer a $91.8 million domestic total.

Oliver Stone’s Savages should gross $8.7 million over the weekend. That would give the Taylor Kitsch/John Travolta thriller a $31 million cume. It’s solid but not great.

Madea’s Witness Protection is on track to accumulate another $5.6 million. That gives the Tyler Perry pic a total gross of $55.6 million, a number which means that it is set to become the second highest Perry directed film ever (behind the $90 million final gross of Madea Goes to Jail).

It looks like audiences don’t want to be a part of Katy Perry: Part of Me. The 3D concert film should gross an estimated $3.7 million over its second weekend, for a poor $18.5 million total.

Moonrise Kingdom  should gross $3.6 million, a number which sees its gross rise to $32.2 million. The film is now the second highest-grossing film in Wes Anderson’s filmography, behind The Royal Tenenbaums’ $52 million final gross.

Madagascar: Europe’s Most Wanted crossed $200 million, after grossing another $3.5 million.

That’s it for now. See you at the movies.

  1. Woo Yeah!!! Dark Knight Rises on Friday!!!!!!

  2. So Spider-Man was number one for one weekend? Sad

    • It’s not really that surprising considering all the competition out now…

      • Let the countdown begin for TDKR!!

      • It actually is suprising giving that the real competition is not out yet.

        The competition out now was basically Ice Age 4 – so which competition are you referring to?

        • ALL the competition man: Ice Age, Brave, Ted, etc.

          A lot of people are also saving up their money for TDKR (seeing as it’s being released so close to TASM), so they won’t be seeing both.
          Not everyone can see every movie that’s released, so they pick their movies for the month very carefully.

  3. Ice Age movies aren’t great, but they’re still little fun family flicks to kill some time.

    And I’m glad to see that The Amazing Spider-Man has been a huge success. I’m pretty sure nobody was expecting it to surpass Raimi’s Spider-Man, which was good film, plus it owned the movie superhero lane at the time. Nowadays, Iron Man is just as big as Spider-Man. Also, there was obviously gonna be some people that didn’t like the reboot idea.

    Iron Man – $585m
    The Amazing Spider-Man – $521m
    Thor – $449m
    Batman Begins – $372m
    Captain America – $368m
    X-Men: First Class – $353m

    So yeah, Spidey is still doing big numbers. It’ll prolly end it’s run around $600m.

    • I think it will be close to that mark but with Thursday/Friday being the opening of The Dark Knight Rises, it’s going to be a hard task to bring in more people to watch ASM. From all indications here, IMAX theaters are close to being sold out Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Crazy

  4. Wow great numbers for The Amazing Spiderman,

    I am honest to say that I was one of those individuals that bad mouth talked The Amazing Spiderman because I didnt like the whole reboot idea and starting over concept I was one of those individuals that really hated the whole reboot concept and I even bad mouth talked Andrew Garfield, the new Spiderman Suit but it looked poorly done at first but after watching the film my options were changed, it was indeed a great film and alittle far beyond better than the first trilogy. I liked the idea that they decided to go darker, and Andrew Garfield actually played both characters really well Im impressed my comments about the movie have changed it was indeed a great film

  5. Watched the Amazing Spider-Man and actually enjoyed it a lot. I think I prefer Garfield over Tobey Maguire. It was a good movie and I’ll support more movies.

  6. More than $500mil? Way to go Spidey!
    Let’s hope he can still roll in a few bucks this week… but I think we all know who’ll dominate the competition for the next few weeks ;)

    • Uh, Salute, Hari Kari, The Runaway? Not sure which movie you are referring to. :-D

      • Batman, probably

        • Uh, yeah, I knew that. The little smiley face :-D gave it away. :-)

  7. With the budget of ASM ballooning to over 200 mil at last reports, the fact that is hasn’t yet made 200 mil domestically is a bad thing.

    521 million with over 330 coming in from overseas markets?

    These numbers sound like Superman Returns numbers.

    • Well even with the budget being at 230 mil and then adding in the odd 100 mil for marketing (damn that sounds insane but it’s fairly accurate), that STILL gives the movie a pure profit margin of 200+ mil. That’s nothing to scoff at.

      So while I can appreciate your attempt to downplay the situation, the fact is we will be seeing an TASM2.

      • I remember everyone gearing up for a second Bryan Singer Superman too.

  8. I think ASM’s current box office is just a little bit more impressive than Superman Returns for sure.In fact it will be a massive task for Man Of Steel to get anywhere near $520 million for sure.

    With MIB 3 grossing over $600 million, it perhaps is no surprise that ASM is doing so well. Even though it’s trailing the Raimi movies – which is a statement in itself, it still underlines the power of 3D ticket sales especially in the overseas market.

    Anyway the anticipation for TDKR now truly begins. I shall be seeing it this Friday and post my verdict later that night. I’ll throw in my early estimation and say it’ll hit no higher than $180 million opening weekend in the US.

    • I’ll guess that it will get close to, or may even beat, Avengers opening weekend. That is a daunting task but the hype for this film is extremely high. I doubt it will beat Avengers total.
