$150M opening weekend for Jurassic World 2. My understanding is the studio expected it to open in that range, so it really isn't a disappointing number. It's just not going to be the phenom that the first movie was.

Still, $300M is a lock and $400M is a possibility.

Incredibles 2 dropped 55 percent from its opening weekend, but it still beat out Finding Dory in its second weekend with $80.9M. That bodes well for its chances of getting to $550M.

Ocean's 8 broke $100M domestic this past weekend and seems to be doing a good job keeping its audience.

Deadpool 2 broke $300M. I don't know if it will get to $350M, but $325M should be within its reach.

Infinity War is getting closer to $670M, though I doubt the studio will leave it in American theaters until it hits $700M. It's drawing so well overseas that the studio won't be thinking about that number domestically, I believe.

Black Panther is about to break $700M domestic. It's drawing just enough that it should break it by this coming weekend.

Second weekend numbers:

Jurassic World: $106M
Jurassic World 2: $60M

Jurassic World 2 has a shot at $400M (it's at $264M now), but it's nowhere near the phenom the first one was. To get to $400M, it can't afford to keep bleeding its audience.

The first film had $250M left in the tank. If the second film gets half that, it finishes around $390M.

So $400M isn't out of the question, but the more it loses its audience, the more difficult it will be.

=========

Third weekend numbers

Finding Dory: $41.8M
Incredibles 2: $45.5M

Incredibles 2 continues to beat Dory, which had $114M left in the tank at this point. Incredibles 2 is at $439M now and matching Dory gets it past $550M. If it keeps enough of a cushion over Dory, it might close in on $575M.

==========

Infinity War added another $1.4M this past weekend and should pass $675M in the coming days. It's going to win the summer box office crown but it's not catching Black Panther for the domestic box office crown for 2018.

But it will have the worldwide box office crown at $2.03B. Looks like it will settle in at fourth place all-time worldwide. It's not going to get enough domestic to catch Force Awakens, even though Infinity War is beating Force Awakens in the foreign box office. If it's going to reach third, it needs about $300M more overseas.

Ant-Man and The Wasp drew $11.5M from Thursday previews, which is a little more than what the first Guardians of the Galaxy film got.

A good sign for Ant-Man 2 opening around $90M.

The heatwave may help it. I went to Incredibles last night around 7pm, and it was totally packed. Lots of other people in the theater, which means Ant-Man was drawing.

Opening weekends:

Ant-Man: $57.2M
Ant-Man and the Wasp: $76M

While not on par with the first Guardians film, it's still a good number for Ant-Man and the Wasp. The first Ant-Man film went on to earn $180M domestic, so if the second film stays at the first film's pace, it should get to $200M.

What may help Ant-Man and the Wasp is there doesn't appear to be a serious competitor looming in the next couple of weeks. Hotel Transylvania 3 probably won't cut into Ant-Man's audience. There's no reviews in yet for Skyscraper, which is the latest film Rock will headline, but it's hard to see that one pulling viewers away unless reviews are off the charts.

=======

Incredibles 2 went past the $500M this past weekend. It beat out Jurassic World 2 ($29M to $28.5M). It beat out Finding Dory for its fourth weekend number (Dory had $20.8M)

It will be interesting to see how Incredibles 2 retains its audience in the weeks to come. If it continues to beat Dory's tallies, Incredibles 2 could have a shot at $600M.

========

Jurassic World 2 is at $333M now. It might have enough left in the tank to get to $400M, but that appears to be its ceiling. Still, I don't think the studio is disappointed -- after all, nobody could have anticipated that the first Jurassic World was going to be the phenom it became.

Deadpool 2 is at $314M and should be a $325M film. Again, I'm sure the studio is happy, given that it went up against a fair amount of competition.

Looking around, I can't see any big serious Oscars movies that normally turn up late in the year. Last year there was a ton of them.---Yohe

Hotel Transylvania 3 opened to $44.1M this past weekend. That's in line with where the franchise has been the last two times.

HT1: $42.5M
HT2: $48.4M
HT3: $44.1M

The first film made $148M domestic and the second made $169M domestic. The third film will likely finish where the first film did, perhaps a bit more.

============

Ant-Man and the Wasp dropped 62 percent from its first to second weekend. It's still $26M ahead of the first film, but it's going to be tougher for it to reach $200M.

I still think it will finish its run ahead of the first film, but $190M may be a more realistic mark.

=============

* Skyscraper drew $25.4M. Mojo had projected $30M. Either way, this doesn't look like it will be a surprise hit.

* Incredibles 2 added $16.2M and continues to beat up on Finding Dory. Yeah, this one is well on its way to $600M.

* Infinity War passed $675M domestic. Worldwide, it's at $2.04B.

* Black Panther is still in a few theaters and is at $699.9M, so it's easy to see the studio is keeping it in theaters until it reaches $700M.
