Memorial Day weekend in the United States marked the return of spectators to movie theaters. Without a sound 2 (in theaters June 16 at our place) by John Krasinski totaled $ 58.5 million in U.S. box office revenue, making it the best startup.
The continuation of the feature film led by Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy and Millicent Simmonds achieves an average of 15,700 dollars on 3,726 theaters. Figures very close to the results achieved Without a sound when it was released in June 2018 (60 million).
Cruella (in our theaters June 23) ranks second in the US box office with a total of $ 26.5 million. Programmed on 3892 screens, the feature film by Craig Gillespie therefore records an average of $ 6,808 per room.
Recall that the film led by Emma Stone is also available in Premium Access on Disney + since Friday May 28 in the United States. The results of the film in theaters across the Atlantic are therefore necessarily affected.
As for the films released earlier, Spiral: the legacy of Saw records $ 2.9 million and therefore totals $ 20.4 million at the US box office since May 14, An angry man with Jason Statham adds $ 2.45 million to its results which therefore amount to $ 22.7 million for its 4th week of operation.
Released simultaneously at the cinema and on Disney +, Raya and the Last Dragon recorded $ 2.57 million for its 13th week in US theaters. The animated feature film, which will be available with us on Disney + from June 4, therefore garners $ 51.4 million in revenue at the American box office.
Traditionally, Memorial Day weekend has been one of the most popular times of the year to go to the movies. While box office numbers are bound to be lower than in years prior to the pandemic, overall revenue is expected to exceed $ 100 million for the first time in more than a year, according to Comscore.
About 75% of US theaters have reopened, but many theaters still face capacity restrictions. These results are therefore more than encouraging for American operators.
