For more than ten years, there has been no such gain in North American cinemas as this summer. The last weekend of the season was also disappointing.
According to Hollywood magazine reports, this year’s movie cinema revenue has fallen below $ 4 billion since 2006.
The last four days of a long weekend in the Labor Day, Friday to Monday, are also estimated to have a much lower revenue than usual, with the forecasts being the lowest in 1998.
Most of the people came to the movie The More Than Bodyguard Action Comedy. The film, starred by Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds, leads the week’s top week for the third week, boosting earnings by $ 10.3 million ($ 2.6 billion) from Friday to Sunday and earning nearly $ 60 million in North America.
In the second place with a $ 7.3 million (1.9 billion forints) ticket, Annabelle 2: The Creation is a horror movie that has been sold for $ 89 million in US cinemas over the past few weeks.
The drama in the Wild River – Killer Tracking, Weinstein Company, was $ 5.9 million ($ 1.5 billion), while the animated Balerina animated film was 4.9 million ($ 1.3 billion) in the fourth place in the top list.
Amongst the top five most watched films, Steven Soderbergh’s film Logan Lucky – The Tale of Bald, came in at $ 4.4 million (1.1 billion forints) this weekend.
The full weekend weekend revenue is expected to be between $ 90 and $ 100 million, a 22 percent drop in revenues compared to last year.
According to industry analyst Paul Deragarabedian, the summer season may cost about $ 3.8 billion. This result is 15 percent behind last year’s cash closure. The number of viewers was 18 percent less than in 2016.
Analysts also point out that productions in the coming weeks, including Barry Seal: A starring role of supplier Tom Cruise, Stephen King’s horror adaptation of Az or Kingsman: The gold ring could dramatically offset cinema earnings in North America.
