Box Office Recap – 06/03/2019


Godzilla: King of the Monsters ruled the domestic box office over the weekend, but just barely. The lackluster lizard flick, starring Millie Bobby Brown, brought in $49 million, against production costs of about $170 million. 

However, Paramount’s Rocketman launched what some say will be a leggy summer run with a $25 million bow. The Dexter Fletcher-directed Elton John biopic has garnered positive reviews, an A- Cinemascore and only cost about $41 million to make. 

Blumhouse and Universal/Comcast’s Ma, starring Octavia Spencer and Diana Silvers, also had a strong opening with $18.26 million, against a $5 million budget.
