'Sicario 2,' 'Uncle Drew' fail to unseat 'Jurassic World' and 'Incredibles' sequels
It was a steady weekend at the box office, as last weekend’s two highest earners—Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (weekend gross $60 million, total gross $264.7 million) and Incredibles 2 (weekend gross $45.5 million, total gross $439.7 million)—maintained their hold at the top of the box office. Still, the two new wide releases did well for themselves. Coming in at spot number three, Sicario: Day of the Soldado earned $19 million on just over 3,000 screens. That’s a much higher screen count than its 2015 predecessor, which topped out at 2,620 screens. Uncle Drew, meanwhile, opened to $15.5 million. Rounding out the top five was Ocean’s 8, earning $8 million (total gross $114.7 million) over its fourth weekend.
The weekend’s highest per-theatre average belonged to the documentary Three Identical Strangers, which opened to $171,503 on five screens for a PTA of $34,301. Also doing well in a limited run is Fox International’s release of Sanju, which cracked the top ten with $2.7 million on 356 screens.
Also new to theatres in limited release were Leave No Trace ($219,140), The Cakemaker ($33,384), Woman Walks Ahead ($6,863), Summer of ’67 ($5,398), Custody ($4,947), Dark River ($4,246), This Is Congo ($3,690) and Game Changers ($3,142).
