Star Trek Beyond managed to go above and beyond the competition, finishing the weekend with an estimated $59.25 million. It remains to be seen how well the film will continue to perform going forward with stiff competition on the horizon, and against a massive budget of $185 million. On the other side of the coin, Ice Age: Collision Course crashed like...like well...an asteroid. Debuting at #4 with an estimated $21.37 million, behind Star Trek, The Secret Life of Pets, and the low budget horror film Lights Out, this is pretty terrible news for Fox and Blue Sky Studios. The film has somehow made $200 million worldwide due to strong foreign box office receipts, but I doubt it will make it to $300 million. Against a budget of $105 million, this will almost assuredly be viewed as a box office disappointment.
Looking at the successful animated films, The Secret Life of Pets managed to finish in the #2 spot with an estimated $29.61 million. The film has made a total of $325 million worldwide and will likely eclipse $400 million after next weekend. Finding Dory also continues to have strong legs despite being in its sixth week at the box office. Dory once again finished in the top ten at #6 with an estimated $7.23 million. Dory has now made $782 million worldwide and is the fifth highest grossing film of the year.
The horror film Lights Out opened with an estimated $21.69 million, good enough for 3rd place. Against a paltry budget of $4.9 million, the film is already a success for Warner Bros. Even Dinesh D'Souza's conservative fever dream Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party managed to crack the top ten at #9 with an estimated $3.96 million.
