‘Guardians 2’ Repeats No. 1, ‘King Arthur’ Is Summer’s First Big Flop

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” continued its box office reign this weekend, while “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” is the summer season’s first major flop.

Disney and Marvel’s super hero sequel followed up its $145 million opening weekend domestically with an additional $63 million from 4,347 locations. That’s a 57% drop, which is in line with expectations, and stronger than some other Marvel Cinematic Universe sequels, including “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Captain America: Civil War.” The film’s domestic total is now just shy of $250 million.

“King Arthur,” meanwhile, may just want to put that sword back where he found it and pretend this never happened. The release from Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow made only $14.7 million from 3,702 locations — a paltry sum considering its $175 million production budget.

The mythical epic starring Charlie Hunnam in the titular role was critically drubbed (it currently has a 27% on Rotten Tomatoes), but has a relatively high B+ CinemaScore. Director Guy Ritchie had success with a similar re-imagining of longstanding franchise with 2009’s “Sherlock Holmes” and its sequel “A Game of Shadows,” which both grossed over $500 million worldwide. More recently, though, his spin on “Man From U.N.C.L.E.” saw a disappointing take ($110 million globally) despite achieving a bit of a cult and critical following.

This weekend’s other major release is neither a box office heavyweight like “Guardians” nor a bust like “Arthur.” Fox’s “Snatched,” starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn as a mother and daughter pair, grabbed $17.5 million from 3,501 theaters, landing it in second overall. The Mother’s Day release has been less than adored by critics (from whom it has collectively earned a 36% on Rotten Tomatoes), but audiences have earned it a more positive B CinemaScore. The mid-budget, R-rated comedy was produced by Chernin Entertainment and Feigco Entertainment.

Universal’s “The Fate of the Furious” and Fox’s “Boss Baby” round out the top five. The former tacked on an additional $5.3 million from 3,067 locations this weekend, raising its domestic total to $215 million. The latter earned $4.6 million from 2,911 locations for a grand total of $162.7 million after seven frames.

One limited release managed to break into the top ten as Blumhouse’s Tilt label put out “Lowriders” in 295 locations. The film, toplined by Demian Bichir, Gabriel Chavarria, and Theo Rossi, over-performed with $2.4 million, putting it in the eighth slot overall.

F8 of the Furious's domestic take is a little disappointing. Where do we expect GotG2 to finish on the domestic side compared to the first?

Well the theatre count for The Wall is low. I think it's more of a limited release.

I have no idea why WB went ahead with King Arthur when they already had a successful franchise with Guy Ritchie in Sherlock Holmes. Does Disney have free reign over Downey's free time that's making it take so long for a third film to happen? Everyone involved seems to want it to happen, so I don't know what's going on there.

lol I thought this was about that Matt Damon Great Wall movie, was wondering "didn't that open already."

Why would you waste space on the thread title for some john cena shit. So much material to play with this weekend man.

Black Knight made $33.4 million domestic.

Arthur needs a 2.2 multiplier to reach it.

This should be fun.

Power Rangers opened to $3.3M in China. It might not hit $5M there.

Dangal has broken out in China, and has grossed $56M there in two weekends. It might end up outgrossing GotG2 in China.

Huh? It's above Fast Five and will end up just below Fast & Furious 6.

Furious 7's $353m domestically is an outlier and is a bit of an unfair expectation for movies that follow it.

That would be deserved with Dangal being better than Galaxy 2 and all.

True, but Aliens do have a Covenant that's releasing soon, so a lot of brain waves and synapses fired off all wrong while reading thread title

What happened with The Circle? I would have thought Tom Hanks and Emma Watson had more drawing power than that, even if it was a bad movie. Bad reviews aren't stopping people from going see Snatched.

Kudos to Dash Riprock, he called King Arthur opening below expectations at a sub-$20M number. :v

The pressure for WW to succeed will be even stronger now, otherwise that would only leave, what, Nolan's Dunkirk to save WB from a hitless summer?

I haven't been paying attention to some of these so I almost spit out my drink over the King Arthur budget. Who in the hell thought that much money thrown at a King Arthur movie in 2017 was a good idea? Jesus

edit: And to that end, I didn't keep up with The Circle's budget either. Thought it wouldn't do well (correct) but I thought that meant it'd be a bomb (definitely won't profit but that budget is tight so it's not that bad).

Star power isn't a thing.

Snatched fulfills a niche no other movie right now can fulfill: a female led adult comedy film.

The same studio that gave keeps giving Zack Snyder and the Wachowskis a chance, and who thought this would be the first of a SIX film tentpole (LMFAO).
