Bad Bays 4 Is No. 1, Summertime Blues Continue


Bad Bays 4 Is No. 1, Summertime Blues Continue


Summary

  • Bad Boys: Ride or Die
    claims the No. 1 spot at the domestic box office with an estimated $56 million and amasses a worldwide total of $104.6 million.
  • Despite
    Bad Boys 4’s
    success, the overall summer box office continues to struggle.
  • The Garfield Movie, IF, The Watchers
    and
    Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes
    round out the Top 5.



2024’s summer movie season continues to stagger along, even with the arrival of Bad Boys: Ride or Die and The Garfield Movie’s stick-to-itiveness. Now, there wasn’t any question which film this weekend would rise to the top, but it’s not really a victory for the ole summertime. Bad Boys 4 claims the No. 1 spot at the box office with an estimated $56 million domestically (per The Numbers). And while that’s certainly a successful start when compared to the other entries in the Bad Boys franchise, the summer’s struggles continue.

The good news is that Bad Boys: Ride or Die made back more than its reported $100-million production budget in just one weekend! The Will Smith and Martin Lawrence-led action flick did even better business overseas as Bad Boys 4 made an additional $48.6 million internationally, which brings the movie’s worldwide total to $104.6 million already. That’s great news for Sony Pictures Releasing, but the summer drought overall continues.


Even with the success of Bad Boys: Ride or Die, the total domestic box office almost failed to reach the $100-million mark. Only two of the summer’s six weekends have broken the $100-million target this year. It’s a disturbing trend that may not find much relief until possibly the release of Inside Out 2 (June14), or when Deadpool & Wolverine finally drops on July 26.


Summer Movie Season’s Struggles Continue


As mentioned, after six weekends, the 2024 summer movie season has only produced two weekends eclipsing $100 million. By comparison, the first six weekends of the 2023 summer ALL amassed more than $100 million each, and the weekend of June 2 last year brought in $205.2 million thanks to the arrival of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Check out the worrisome 2024 numbers in comparison to 2023 below:
