ANT-MAN Tops PIXELS — Game Over for Adam Sandler's Career?
Pixels' poor debut opened the way for Ant-Man to take the No. 1 spot for a second weekend in a row. Marvel Studios' latest film fell 56.7 percent its second weekend. I found this surprising based on the positive word-of-mouth promotion Ant-Man was receiving from fans. This sadly leaves Ant-Man at $106.8 million — dead last for Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. It looks like the movie doesn't have the power to break $200 million, which is a huge departure from every movie that the studio has put out since The Avengers.
Jurassic World fell out of the top five for the first time, but that didn't stop the movie from adding another record to its impressive resumé. Over just seven weekends, Jurassic World became the third highest grossing movie in domestic box office history, passing The Avengers' $623.4 million with $623.8 million of its own. Jurassic World will now attempt to pass Titanic's $658.7 million.
