July 04 - Elvis at the Box-office

The Elvis biopic movie dropped from #1 to #3 on the U.S. box-office this weekend (July 1-3 2022).

The Minions took in US108,5 million, 'Tom Cruise did a flyby beating Elvis for the No. 2 spot with US$25,5 million while the latter grossed US$19 million at the box-office. 

The movie brought in US$67.3 million for Warner Bros. in two weeks. The numbers will be updated when the definitive weekend totals become available.

It has been an extremely healthy bounce-back year for the box office and that has only continued into this blockbuster summer movie season. One of the movies that have set the box office a blaze of late has been Elvis. After an impressive opening weekend in the United States last week, the musical biopic shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Especially overseas where the film has made another $15.7 million this weekend on 8,305 screens in 57 international markets.

There are many impressive things to note about that number, but arguably the most notable is that Elvis only had a 28% drop-off in hold over markets. More specifically the film has only had a 2% drop-off in Denmark, a 13% drop-off in both Australia and Poland, and a 14% drop-off in Germany. Other markets worth highlighting are Israel, Belgium, and the United Kingdom which had only a 20%, 25%, and 27% drop off respectively. In terms of new markets, Japan had the biggest opening market this week taking in $1.1 million on 407 screens. This brings the overseas total to $46.2 million and the worldwide total to an amazing $113.5 million. Elvis will look to continue his reign at the box office with the film opening next in Korea on July 13 and in Latin America the following day on July 14.

The movie result:

  • United States   : US$67,320,000
  • International    : US$46,200,000
  • Worldwide        : US$113,520,000

Most fans seem to live in the United Kingdom (US$4,9 million), Australia (US$16,2 million) and France (US$2,1 million).
