As ‘Maleficent 2’ Tops $400 Million, Disney Benefits From ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Disappointment
The likes of Terminator: Dark Fate, Ford v Ferrari, Frozen II, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and Spies in Disguise will allow Disney to completely dominate the year's end box office in terms of global market share.
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil may top $500 million worldwide without passing $120 million domestic.
In an arbitrary Tuesday box office report, Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, and Michelle Pfeiffer's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.
From Walt Disney, made $1.74 million yesterday, down barely 20% from last Tuesday and up absurdly 106% over Monday.
I'm not sure if it is a record Monday-to-Tuesday jump (for a non-holiday), but it's undoubtedly one of the biggest.
The Angelina Jolie movie is still on track to make $115 million domestically with a current domestic total of $87.824 million.
Given that this sequel cost roughly the same ($180 million) as its predecessor, Maleficent's $242 million domestic cume in the summer of 2014, that represents a significant decline.
Just 22% of its global earnings were made in North America. As a result, Mistress of Evil ought to surpass $315 million internationally and $400 million globally today.
