Box Office Week: The Dark Tower is #1 with a terrible $19.5M, leading the worst weekend of the summer. Meanwhile Kidnap underwhelms at #5 with $10.2M and Detroit bombs at #8 with $7.2M. Also Dunkirk passes $300M worldwide and The Mummy passes $400M worldwide.

While the film carries a relatively small (for a blockbuster) budget of $60M, the film will likely not even pass that in its domestic gross. The Dark Tower is clearly a product of a film fizzling out after a huge gestation period that included major multi-film and TV plans for directors JJ Abrams and later Ron Howard. The film finally managed to exist but with mere character and location similarities to the plot, which likely drove away fans and only confused general audiences. Indeed audiences weren’t as pleased either as the film scored a B on Cinemascore which means even in the more forgiving month of August the film will not likely hold well. Because of its total failure (Kidnap and Detroit underperformed as well but were never going to be blockbusters) this is the worst overall weekend of the summer and the worst for this slot in the last five years. This has historically always been an interesting weekend, usually where you put the stuff the studios aren’t sure of but may find an audience. As such you sometimes get major successes like Guardians of the Galaxy and Suicide Squad or huge bombs like Fantastic Four ’15 and Total Recall ’13. While The Dark Tower won’t be as big a bomb as FF it is another huge disappointment for Sony who are desperate for a new franchise. Already this opening puts doubt about the planned TV series and especially any further films. So the franchise likely gone. Like a candle-flame. To whatever worlds there are.See Kidnap is the other perfect example of the early August release schedule. A film starring Halle Berry that was shot in 2014 but sat on the shelf during the whole Relativity Media financial fiasco only to be released now. Honestly with that all in mind it’s not that bad the film opened at #5 to $10.2M. Okay actually it is pretty bad, especially when it scored a B+ on Cinemascore. However this is quite frankly movie flipping. For those who don’t know Relativity Media was a seemingly major movie production company that was borrowing money like crazy and saying they were just seeing profits on every film. Eventually it came out they completely lied about their earnings and were over a $1B in debt (seriously read about these guys). Kidnap was one of many films caught in the crossfire and was bought at a bargain of only $3M by start up Aviron Pictures. Whatever profits come from this are just helping that company start their business and Relativity will be paying off its investors for decades. Welcome to the weird word of film financing folks!And here’s the third classic August release Detroit, a film that seems like a major Oscar contender but gets buried in August because it just isn’t working right. The latest from Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow was a hit with critics but not with audiences opening at #8 with a terrible $7.2M. This mirrors a very similar performance from last year, The Free State of Jones, another film about black history made by white filmmakers that opened in early August to $7M. Whether you agree or not with that complaint, it does breed controversy and controversy kills Oscar careers so it seems lately these studios are weirdly trying to bank on these films being audience hits first and then running them as campaigns, but as Jones and Birth of a Nation prove if you have no campaign most people don’t feel the need to see something they know will be depressing like Detroit. Too bad as Detroit actually scored really well with audiences as well, earning a A- on Cinemascore. It’s clear Detroit is a victim of timing, placing a film that should be a fall release to die in the summer. It’s likely that Annapurna was hoping for something more like Selma but instead got The Last House on the Left version of history and didn’t want to bother with the months and months of criticism that comes with a campaign, especially in a very politically charged moment.While mainly questioned WB releasing the $100M war film Dunkirk in summer the last two weekends should have quelled their fears and complaints. In a summer of terrible second and third weekend drops, Dunkirk managed to hold quite well, dropping 47% its second weekend for $26.6M and 33% its third weekend for $17.6M at #2. While not the incredible less than 30% drop of Saving Private Ryan, it’s pretty solid for a film with such a unique non-narrative structure. The film has already passed $100M domestic and $300M worldwide, mostly lead by the UK which has already poured in a fantastic $35.8M so far. Dunkirk was never going to be a huge blockbuster and is clearly a thank you from Warner Bros to Nolan for delivering so many hit properties for them. Now the big push will be if WB can get their golden boy a golden man (please kill me for saying that) as I recently learned something very interesting. Apparently a big reason Interstellar faired so poorly in its Oscar race is that Nolan hates screeners, not surprising as the director pushing the cinematic experience hates the idea of a DGA member seeing his IMAX shot epics on a TV with glare pouring in. Releasing in July means Dunkirk can run when most Academy members are sick of blockbuster fare, especially appealing to the older crowd. It will be interesting to see then in the future what that will mean for re-releases of Dunkirk, especially since its pivotal voting time will be clashing with The Last Jedi likely hogging every IMAX screen in the world. Still as it stands this weekend likely put Dunkirk in the black and even if the film doesn’t break $500M, Warner Bros is extremely happy that their favorite director has another notch to add to his belt of hit movies.Never count out the foreign market as while the beginning of the “Dark Universe” The Mummy (2017) failed to deliver in the US, it’s managed to make enough to pass $400M worldwide on a budget of $125M. A staggering 80% of the film’s gross is from foreign sales because while the US may be tiring of Tom Cruise he still brings in major audiences in places like China, South Korea, and Brazil. While this number is not the massive blockbuster it could have been it’s at least enough to not can the entire Universal Monsters experiment for a second time (see: Dracula Untold). The director of The Mummy and the initial Kevin Feige of this universe Alex Kurtzmann is apparently likely on the outs with the entire franchise and with The Bride of Frankenstein lined up I think it’s very likely Universal will wait to see how that does, replace Kurtzmann, and keep the universe going as long as it makes sense.Films Reddit Wants to FollowThis is a segment where we keep a weekly tally of currently showing films that aren’t in the Top 5 that fellow redditors want updates on.
