Box Office: ‘Dark Phoenix’ Falling Short of Weekend Estimates With Under $40 Million https://t.co/A3msKK5Kw8— Variety (@Variety) June 7, 2019
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.
