Despicable Me 3 was the #1 movie of the weekend by a very large margin, to no surprise to anyone. Now a lot of people want to treat this like its one big holiday weekend that goes through Tuesday, but I do not, so we will keep this as the weekend. The House bombed, which is disappointing since I was hoping it was going to help keep me in the lead in my conference. Baby Driver outperformed expectations, which makes sense because its an awesome movie. Seriously, its such a fun movie, I strongly recommend you see it in theaters. I don’t even have the movie, I don’t care, its just so good. I’ve been listening to the soundtrack all weekend too.
Another interesting thing to point out is that there is a potential that Wonder Woman ends up being the highest grossing movie of the summer. Its still about $37M behind Guardians but it seems to have slightly better momentum. If that ends up being the case, then for any potential Tie-breaker of the Weekly Winners, we will have to go by the predicted BO total, because none of us picked Wonder Woman to be #1 (sexists…).
To the CHARTS!!!
Anyway, I hope you all have an awesome (and also safe) Independence Day!
