  4. 'Spider-Man: Far from Home' Delivers Record $185 Million Opening
    It has been a while since we saw a sequel deliver on expectations, but, this weekend, Sony's Spider-Man: Far from Home delivered the largest six-day opening ever for a Tuesday release, leading the weekend box office and helping the top 12 outperform the same weekend last year for the first time in four weeks.

  6. 'Toy Story 4' Looks to Repeat at Weekend Box Office Over 'Annabelle' & 'Yesterday'
  7. 'Toy Story 4' Tops the Weekend Box Office With $118 Million
    Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 topped the weekend box office and did so with the franchise's largest opening weekend yet, but even it seems to have been bitten by the summer's sequel slump as it too delivered well below studio and industry expectations. On top of that, UA Releasing's Child's Play finished in second place while also missing forecasted pre-weekend expectations while Lionsgate and Summit's Anna fell just shy of a spot in the top ten. With an estimated $118 million, Disney...

  9. 'Men in Black' & 'Shaft' Become Latest Summer Sequels to Disappoint
    It was another disappointing weekend for a pair of new sequels as both Sony's Men in Black International and WB's Shaft were both unable to reach even the slimmest of studio expectations heading into the weekend. The weekend is down significantly compared to last year when Incredibles 2 bowed with a record-shattering $182.6 million opening and next weekend will turn to Pixar once again, looking to Toy Story 4 to turn the tide. Sony's release of Men in Black International debuted with a...

Even worse news comes in for WB's Shaft, which brought in an estimated $2.7 million on Friday and is looking to settle outside the top five with a three-day gross around $7-8 million.
