For the weekend of July 27-29, 2016, Jason Bourne was the big winner. Matt Damon's return to the franchise was a successful one. It was the second-best opening of the series and a good $20 million more than the Damon-less Bourne Legacy.
Bad Moms also has to be happy with its performance, in this summer where R-rated comedies have been unreliable in their ability to perform. Maybe that helped them.
Nerve was a low budget movie, but surely the filmmakers had hoped to break $10 million opening.
Of the holdovers, any movie that opens over $50 million can expect to drop 50% or more in its second week, but 58.2% is a little steeper than Paramount would like for Star Trek: Beyond.
Opens August 5
SUICIDE SQUAD with Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Viola Davis.
NINE LIVES with Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Garner and Christopher Walken.
