Box Office Breakdown! Transformers Still #1! Tammy #2! Deliver Us From Evil Weak! Doh!

There wasn’t much to celebrate in regards to ticket sales this 4th of July weekend. Transformers Age of Extinction was the number one movie for the second week in a row with $36.4 million. However, that’s a 63% drop in sales and is still $35 million shy of its massive budget.

Tammy opened at number two with $21 million. Not bad for an R rated comedy on a holiday weekend, but still nothing to shout from the rooftops.

Deliver Us From Evil opened at number three scaring up $15 million, which was right on track with Studio estimates.

22 Jump Street came in at number four with $9.4 million for a worldwide total of $228.4 million. 23 Jump Street is just around the corner. Literally if you’ve seen the movie.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 took in another $8.7 million at number five. Its domestic total of $140 million is still under its $145 million budget, but foreign grosses should secure a third installment of this series.

Earth to Echo barley made a blip on the radar, opening at number six with just $8.2 million.

Maleficent is still reigning, coming in at number seven after six weeks in release with $6.1 million and a worldwide gross of $630 million.

Forgettaboutit. Jersey Boys fell to number eight with $5.1 million. With a budget of $40 million and a total domestic gross $36 million so far, this is one musical number that should have stuck to Broadway.

Think Like a Man Too opened strong, but fell quickly down the charts, coming in at number nine with $4.9 million. However, its domestic gross of $57 million greatly outweighs its modest $24 million budget.

Rounding out the top ten was Edge of Tomorrow which took in $3.6 million. Its domestic gross of $90 million was a disappointment, but foreign grosses of $228.6 million certainly make up for it.

Next weekend is an easy call. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will surely be the number one movie. Its predecessor was a hit and there is virtually no competition. Tune in to see if I’m right.

Until then, happy movie going.
