Box Office: ‘The Flash’ Continues its Epic Fall While Spidey Swings Back into First

  1. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse – $19.3M/$317M

After spending a week at #3 Miles Morales and all the varied Spider-People take back the #1 spot this week cementing the animated flick’s place as the movie of the summer

2. Elemental – $18.4M/$65.5M

While the news surrounding Pixar’s latest has been bleak, things could be worse as Elemental holds it’s second place spot with only a 37% drop in its box office receipts. It certainly doesn’t change things long-term for the legacy of the movie but it must dull the sting a bit.

3. The Flash – $15.2M/$87.6M

Ouch. After a dismal opening weekend the film hailed by studio execs as “The greatest superhero film of all time” fell even harder in it’s second week with a $15M take. The Ezra Miller led flick dropped a colossal 72% in it’s box office take, and that’s including the fact that it was added to 22 additional screens.

4. No Hard Feelings (Review)- $15.1M

While fourth place is probably not what the filmmakers had in mind when pitching their Jennifer Lawrence led R-rated sex comedy, it’s not bad all things considered. One has to wonder how this would have done if it was released in August or September in a less crowded field.

5. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts  – $11.6M/$122.9M

6. Asteroid City (Review)- $9M/$10.2M

Wes Anderson’s latest, which premiered in limited release last week, expanded to over 1600 screens this week and it looks like the Anderson fans across the country were waiting. Sure coming it at #6 doesn’t sound like a win but the film does have the distinction of holding the highest per screen average at $5,375 per screen.

7. The Little Mermaid – $8.6M/$270.2M

8. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 – $3.5M/$351.1M

9. The Blackening – $3M/$12.2M

10. The Boogeyman – $2.5M/$37.7M
