Though new entries "Sicario: Day of the Soldado" and "Uncle Drew" scored higher debuts than expected, "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" still reigns supreme at the domestic box office. Even adjusted for inflation, Incredibles 2 still has out-earned the 2004 film with a domestic box office total of $439.7 million compared to The Incredibles' domestic earnings of $384.9 million after taking inflated ticket prices into account.
Further down in the top 10, Fox International Pictures' Sanju is arriving with an estimated $2.6 million from just 356 theaters, good for eighth place. Although the sequel has only been playing theaters for two weeks, it's already surpassed the first film's global box office numbers.
Earlier in the week, "Sicario: Day of the Soldado" and "Uncle Drew" were targeting openings between $10 million and $13 million. The critically acclaimed original film - which scored three Oscar nods - picked up $84 million globally during its theatrical run.
Director Stefano Sollima's sequel has not been as warmly received among critics.
On a lighter note, "Uncle Drew" draws on the talents of basketball stars present and past - Kyrie Irving, Shaquille O'Neal, Chris Webber, Lisa Leslie, and Reggie Miller - with a court-full of others in cameo roles. Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Catherine Keener, Sophia Bush, and Brad Bird also lend their voices to the film, which Bird wrote and directed. So far, Solo has made $369 million at the worldwide box office. That's a per screen average of $32,000 - a solid start during a summer where documentaries have fared exceptionally well.
You can see the full Top 10 list for the June 29-July 1 United States box office below, as compiled by Box Office Mojo. Sunju made $2.55 million from only 365 screens, giving it the week's third biggest screen average. In total, it has grossed $7.5 million.
According to ComScore, overall box office is up 9.3 percent year-to-date, and summer box office is up 15.3 percent.
After two weekends of $100 million-plus movies, the latest weekend provided a little blockbuster break before "Ant-Man and the Wasp" opens this week. The superhero sequel is now tracking between US$68 million and US$80 million.
