Box office report: Tomorrowland leads slow Memorial Day weekend
So far, it’s been a quiet Memorial Day weekend at the movies.
Disney’s sci fi-adventure film Tomorrowland opened to an estimated three-day total of $32.2 million, and estimates have it on track to bring in about $41 million through tomorrow. That gives it a slight lead over Pitch Perfect 2, which took in an estimated $30.3 million in its second week. The Barden Bellas likely won’t have enough momentum to overtake Tomorrowland for the four-day holiday tally, but it should be close.
All in all, the box office totals this weekend won’t come close to past Memorial Day numbers. Big openings from Fast & Furious 6 and The Hangover Part III set the Memorial Day weekend record in 2013, with $254.6 million over three days and $314.2 million over four. This year’s totals are expected to come in around $150 million for three days and about $190 million with Monday added in.
Here are the weekend’s top five at the box office so far. Check back tomorrow for the updated four-day totals, as well as more in-depth analysis.
1. Tomorrowland — $32.2 million
2. Pitch Perfect 2 — $30.3 million
3. Mad Max: Fury Road — $23.9 million
4. Poltergeist — $23 million
5. Avengers: Age of Ultron — $20.9 million
