Share Button

Hey all – Steve here. It is that time of the week again and we have to go through the Box Office Top 5. We don’t really need to look at which movie came out as number 1, do we? I mean we know there was a huge kids movie that came out and kids are bugging their parents to see it and then the parents give in and the movie makes a ton of money. That’s how life works. Alright, let’s get to it shall we?

1. Despicable Me 3

Budget – $75 million

This Weekend – $75.4 million

Domestic Total – $75.4million

Worldwide Total – $192.3 million

I haven’t had the chance to see this yet with my son, but be sure that it will happen sooner rather than later. Seems as though the consensus is that if you liked the first two movies and the Minions movie, then you should be just fine with this one. If you hate the minions (how dare you) then you should just stay away from this one and keep your negativity to yourself – nobody needs that in their lives. I’ve got 3 reviews you can check out if you haven’t already done so:

2. Baby Driver

Budget – $34 million

This Weekend – $21 million

Domestic Total – $30 million

Worldwide Total – $38.6 million

I am so upset that I missed the screening for this one. That being said I had heard nothing but GREAT things about it until Scott told me that he didn’t necessarily like the ending. I will do my best to try to go see this one as soon as I can. Perhaps this afternoon after the Mets game. Perhaps. Anywho…if you missed the reviews from the crew, here they are!

3. Transformers: The Last Knight

Budget – $217 million

This Weekend – $17 million

Domestic Total – $102 million

Worldwide Total – $429.9 million

Now at $430 million worldwide, this franchise continues to befuddle critics all over the country. It is nice to see that the domestic totals are slowing down because really can we just stop with these? No, seriously…just stop.

4. Wonder Woman

Budget – $149 million

This Weekend – $16.1 million

Domestic Total – $346.6 million

Worldwide Total – $708.4 million

Wonder Woman drops one spot to #4 this weekend, but the big news here is that it has now crossed the $700 million mark worldwide and that is a damn good accomplishment.

5. Cars 3

Budget – $125 million

This Weekend – $9.5 million

Domestic Total – $120.7 million

Worldwide Total – $173.8 million

This one drops from 3 to 5 and brings in a really disappointing $9.5 million. A lot of people (myself included) feel that Cars is the weakest of the Pixar franchises/films and while it has now made just about $175 million worldwide, it shows. It also got hurt by Despicable Me 3 getting released during its third week in theaters.

That is all for this weekend, people. Next weekend we have a monster that will no doubt take the top spot and that is Spider-Man: Homecoming. Understandably, no other studio would dare release a movie on the same week as Spidey. Have a great week and a very safe and happy 4th!
