Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: July 8, 2012

'The Amazing Spider-Man' starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone (Review)

Seth MacFarlane’s Ted continues to impress. The Mark Wahlberg starring comedy should greet Monday morning with $32.5 million, giving it a great $120 million total. A final gross of $200 million isn’t out of the question.

Disney/Pixar’s Brave should score $20 million for a $174 million total. It’s now on course to shoot past $200 million, besting the final gross of Cars 2 and the original Toy Story.

Oliver Stone’s Savages debuted to $16.1 million, a so-so number. Savages has had mixed reviews (read ours), but it was never going to break-out in this crowded market place. This is the third Taylor Kitsch movie this year (after Battleship and John Carter) that has failed to impress, he’s like Channing Tatum in reverse.


Speaking of Tatum - Magic Mike should gross an additional $15.6 million for a $72.7 million total. It’s down around 60%  from last weekend, but it’s a great number for this adult-focused drama. The film should be another $100 million grosser for the newly minted A-lister.

Madea’s Witness Protection should hit $10.2 million for a $45.8 million total, while Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted should score another $7.7 million for a great $196 million, making it the highest grossing film in the franchise. Globally the film has banked $450 million.

Katy Perry: Part Of Me had a lacklustre start, grossing just $7.1 million over the weekend for a $10 million total. That’s a big step down from the $29 million debut of Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never. However, the Bieber film was very front-loaded, so this should have a longer run - but it won't hit that film's $73 million domestic gross. It’ll make back its $12 million production budget, and then some.

Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom should see its gross swell to $26.8 million after banking another $4.6 million, while Woody Allen’s To Rome With Love cracked the top ten grossing $3.5 million. The Italian-set comedy has now grossed $5.6 million at the domestic box office and over $17 million globally.

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