Box office for Memorial Day weekend lowest in nearly two decades

Malita Javier | 10 Junio, 2017, 10:12

An expected global four day of over 300 million US dollars will push the franchise through the 4 billion USA dollars threshold in the coming days, according to Studio figures collected by comScore.

Over time, the Pirates franchise has become more reliant on overseas ticket sales and that shouldn't be a problem. While that downward trend in opening weekends suggests diminishing interest in the series among US audiences, the opposite is true at the foreign box office.

Before you think that that must be the worst opening ever for a Pirates movie, you'd be wrong. It's the worst opening for the franchise since the original film and the three-day weekend is almost $30 million less than what the last film, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, opened with.

The Pirates franchise has grossed US$3.7bil since the first film in 2003 and despite poor reviews, Salazar's Revenge is expected to take in some US$80mil at the North American box office in the first weekend, trade publication Variety said.

Newcomer Baywatch falls in at #3 for the weekend, with an estimated $18.1 million domestically.

Elsewhere, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continued its winning streak, finishing at #2 in its fifth frame with $25.1 million in the States and bringing its worldwide total to over $788.5 million.

Dead Men Tell No Tales sailed into first place at the box office over the weekend but the story the numbers dictate is not one of swashbuckling heroics.

Hollywood studios and theater owners are depending on Wonder Woman to boost box office sales at the end of this week. Still, Baywatch isn't getting as much help from overseas, opening in just a handful of global markets earning just $873,000 so far.

Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, last week's box-office leader, dropped off sharply to fourth place.

Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter is estimating that the global take of "Pirates" (which cost $200 million to make) could exceed $300 million in its opening weekend.

In news that will come as a major shock to.well, nobody, The Rock's Baywatch adaptation isn't doing great at the box office, either. "He was like, 'I don't know, $2 million.' I was like, 'For snacks?' And he was like, 'Yeah?' That sounds frivolous, but it wasn't".
