Box Office: ‘The Garfield Movie’ Is Top Cat With $152M Worldwide, ‘Furiosa’ Struggles Continue

  1. The Garfield Movie– $14M/$51.5M

Another weak box office for Hollywood, as The Garfield Movie tops everything with $14M, claiming #1 after debuting at #2 last weekend behind Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. This brings the top cat’s total worldwide haul to $152M.

2. IF– $10.8M/$80.4M

3. Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga– $10.7M/$49.6M

So how bad have things gotten for George Miller’s Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga? The film opened soft last weekend, but has fallen 59% which is enough to be surpassed by IF’s third weekend. The prequel led by Anya Taylor-Joy earned $10.7 for $49M domestic and just $114M worldwide.

4. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes– $8.8M/$139.9M

5. The Fall Guy– $4.2M/$80.2M

After five weeks, The Fall Guy continues to hold steady despite its digital release last week. The Ryan Gosling aciton-comedy fell just 29%, the lowest of any top 10 film, for $4.2M and $80M domestic, with $157M worldwide.

6. The Strangers: Chapter 1– $3.6M/$28.3M

7 Haikyuu!! The Dumpster Battle– $3.5M

Crunchyroll and Sony released the anime Haikyuu! The Dumpster Battle into 1119 theaters and earned $3.5M domestically. Worldwide the film already has $80M.

8. In a Violent Nature (review)- $2.1M

The first major new release of the week, the buzzy unrated slasher film In a Violent Nature, opened with $2.1M, boosted by strong reviews by critics since its premiere at Sundance. A nice win for IFC Films going into the summer months. I’m a big fan of this one (you can see my interview with the director here) and its approach to the genre, which is to show the action from the killer’s perspective. Among genre fans we could see this one stick around for a while.

9. Ezra (review)- $1.1M

Audiences absolutely love the new autism dramedy Ezra, led by Robert De Niro, Bobby Cannavale, Rose Byrne, Whoopi Goldberg, and more. That certainly helped boost the Bleecker Street film to a $1.1M launch in 1320 screens.

10. Sight– $1M/$5.8M
