'Dark Phoenix', 'Secret Life of Pets 2' both expected to underperform at box office this weekend




Contrary to earlier reports, 'Dark Phoenix' is underperforming so much on Friday that early estimates are saying the last in the FOX X-Men saga will bring in an estimated $37.7 million, when it was originally estimated to make around $50M in the U.S. The budget on this one was $200M.

'Secret Life of Pets 2' was expected to make around $50 million to $55 million, but now estimates are looking for it to fall a bit short of that, at $48.5 million (which isn't as bad), on a $80M budget.

Disney's 'Aladdin' is expected to overtake Godzilla and take the third spot this weekend.
