"Men In Black International" wins at the gloomy box office



"Men In Black International," Sony's latest film in the Men In Black franchise, reported about $ 28.5 million opening at the North American box office this weekend. It was enough for the sci-fi movie to be in first place, but it was just below the expectations of the industry. The film was originally expected to generate $ 30 million.

The film has reported $ 102.2 million to date in the world.

"International" is the fourth film in the series, which has grossed more than $ 1.6 billion worldwide since 1997, according to Comscore (SCOR).
"Men In Black International", starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, has probably stumbled at the box office because of bad reviews. The film was largely shot with him and got a mediocre average of 24% on the Rotten Tomatoes review site.

"Shaft", the other grand opening of the weekend, gave mediocre results. The Warner Bros. movie, starring Samuel L. Jackson and a reboot of the 1971 classic, came in sixth place with an estimated US $ 8.3 million opening in North America.

"Shaft" also suffered bad reviews with a 35% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Last weekend was also pretty dark at the box office. The two biggest movies of the last weekend – Universal's "The Secret Life of Pets 2" and "Dark Phoenix" of 20th Century Fox – have not met the expectations of the industry in North America .

"Secret Life of Pets 2" remained stable this weekend, ranking # 2 with an estimated $ 23.8 million for the second weekend.

After two weeks of box office, Hollywood is looking to rebound well next weekend.

Pixar and Disney's "Toy Story 4", which brings Tom Hanks and Tim Allen back to Woody and Buzz Lightyear, opens its doors next weekend.

The film is the fourth of the popular Toy Story franchise and seeks to continue the box office success of the brand. The franchise has achieved nearly $ 2 billion since 1995.

The animated film currently holds a perfect score of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
