US box office: Buzz Lightyear misses its takeoff, Jurassic World retains the lead

The latest Pixar raked in just $51 million in revenue for its first weekend.

Buzz failed to hit hyperspeed for its US launch. First Pixar film to be released exclusively in theaters since Ahead (Drunk, Luke and Red alert came out Disney Plus), the spin-off of Toy Story was, according to predictions, to raise 70 to 85 million dollars for its launch. He finally reported “only” 51, and therefore fails to dethrone Jurassic World: Dominion and its 58 million (247 cumulative).

It’s a big disappointment for Disney and Pixar. Buzz Lightning does less well than Ahead (66 million), released in February 2020 during the pandemic, and remains light years away from Toy Story 4 (118 million). While blockbusters have been filling theaters again for a few months, the same is not true for films targeting the family market, note the HollywoodReporter. He will have an opportunity to catch up on this holiday Monday in the United States where Juneteenth is celebrated, and we will also watch his start at the French box office, this Wednesday.

The podium is completed by Top Gun: Maverickwhich confirms its immense success with 44 million additional green tickets for the film worn by Tom Cruise. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is him 4th, with 4.2 million. Behind, it dives, and alone Bob’s Burger exceeds one million. A sign that the recovery is still timid for cinemas outside of big productions.
