At the box office, 'Skyscraper' falls to 'Hotel Transylvania 3'

At the box office, 'Skyscraper' falls to 'Hotel Transylvania 3'

"We took the No. 1 slot this weekend with a tremendous amount of competition".

Universal's other big release, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which just recently passed the $1 billion global box office mark, roared to another $15.5 million, bringing its 4-week domestic total to $363 million, with a phenomenal worldwide take of $1.13 billion, the 18th highest grossing film of all time, proving audiences continue to display a huge appetite for the dinosaur franchise. But this doesn't mean that everything he puts his name to is a guaranteed hit, as the disappointing weekend results for his latest film, the action thriller Skyscraper, have shown.

Taking second spot this weekend with a $28.8 million gross was Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp, bringing its 10-day cume to $132 million domestic / $283 million worldwide. While this is better than the $22 million debut of Johnson's 2017 flop Baywatch, it is below the studio's $30 million prediction, and well under Jumanji's $36.1 opening. Dwayne Johnson's starer "Skyscraper" opened with 40.4 million dollars.

Movie studio Universal is banking on his massive worldwide following to justify the film's pricey US$125 million budget. Bo Burnham wrote and directed the critically lauded feature, which made US$255,000 when it opened on four screens. In total, it has earned $5.3 million.

Also new to theatres in limited release were Soorma ($168,000 on 50 screens); Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot ($83,120 on four screens); Shock & Awe ($41,000 on 100 screens); Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti ($35,607 on six screens); Milford Graves: Full Mantis ($8,515 on one screen) and Dark Money ($8,100 on one screen). Joaquin Phoenix stars in the Amazon Studios comedy, which earned $20,780 per theatre. Morgan Neville's film centring on Mister Rogers has grossed US$15.8 million, making it the highest grossing documentary of the year, as well as the 16th-highest earning of all time.

Roadside Attractions and Miramax's Whitney pulled in another US$535,385 from 208 screens. The Whitney Houston documentary has made $2.6 million to date.
