Box Office Recap: May 31st – June 2nd

Godzilla strikes back at number 1, Aladdin still going strong at 2

Box office recap time! Did you contribute to this weekends earnings? As usual, tons of great films made the list.

Number 1 was the new Godzilla Movie, Godzilla: King of the Monsters by Warner Brothers. Despite having the corniest name for an action-packed monster movie, it grossed just over $49 million this weekend.

At number 2, Aladdin still brought in ticket sales with $42.3 million. They had $91.5 million last week, decreasing by 54%, as expected. Expect it to stay on the list for a couple weekends.

Number 3 was a new release, and it was Rocketman, with $25 million in it’s debut. This is shock to a lot of movie goers, especially considering that Bohemian Rhapsody was a massive hit in theaters everywhere. Number 3 isn’t too shabby though.

Avengers: Endgame grossed another $7.8 million in its now 6th week on the top charts. Still a decent ways away from the $2.787 million that Avatar made to secure it’s number 1 all-time spot for worldwide gross. Endgame currently sits at $2.17.

Be sure to come back next week for another recap! Who knows? Maybe Endgame will take that number 1 spot…
