Two years ago, the film adaptation of the comic book by Mark Millar, “Kingsman: the Secret service” was launched from 36.2 million dollars. The sequel earned in the first three days slightly more, but not so much like the critics (Rotten Tomatoes — 50%, Metacritic — 45). It is important to note that the original film was launched in February, shortly before the Presidential days, while the sequel appeared on American screens in the fall season.
“We have strengthened its franchise and very happy,” appreciated the launch of the sequel to head of the American hire Studio 20th Century Fox Chris Aronson. Rating from audiences polled by Cinemascore company, is equal to B+.
Top ten last weekend gathered 110,3 million dollars, which is 19% higher than in 2016, when those days started the remake of “the Magnificent seven” (34.7 million), but 12% lower than in 2015, when the leader was “Transylvania 2” (48.5 million).
2. “It,” $ 30 million (-50%), 4007 cinemas
Technically “It” in the US has outstripped at the box office such classics of horror as “the exorcist” (William Friedkin film 232,7 million dollars). In the genre just ahead of “the Sixth sense” M. night Shyamalan with 293,5 million dollars. Now the “It” 266,3 million dollars for 17 days.
However, the number of spectators who came to the sessions (which is more or less the only indicator that demonstrated the popularity of a film without taking into account inflation affecting the value of the tickets), the picture of Andres, Mosketti still far. “The exorcist” on this indicator among the ten most popular films in U.S. history — about 110 million viewers. “The sixth sense” — 68 place with almost 58 million.
“It” is still not in the top 200 tapes with the highest attendance. But if fulfilled predictions of analysts and the film will be selected for General duties in 330 million dollars, he has all chances to get somewhere on the last lines of the list, where now, for example, are such projects as “the suicide Squad” (325 million of fees and 38.2 million viewers) and “Batman V Superman: dawn of justice” (330 million of fees and 38.3 million viewers).
In the same list, by the way, there are three films from 2017: “beauty and the beast” (57 million viewers), “Wonder woman” (46 million viewers) and “Guardians of the Galaxy. Part 2” (slightly less than 44 million viewers).

Feature film based on it, shot for $ 70 million, was more than the first “LEGO. The movie” ($60 million), but cheaper “LEGO. Batman” ($80 million).
The “Ninjago” was weaker than its predecessors, not only start-up fees (EC $ 69.5 million in the first part and 53 million have history of Batman), but the critics ratings (Rotten Tomatoes — 53%, Metacritic — 55). “I was hoping that [at the start] will gather more. We know that each of the films in the franchise based on a series of different designers. This clearly is not yet ripe [for his full-length]”, — said the head of American distribution for Warner Bros. Jeff Goldstein.
“Probably the two movie franchises on Lego in one year was too much,” — said the author of The Associated Press Jake Coyle. Most likely in the USA “Ninjago” will go the way of last year’s “Storks”, also released by Warner Bros. and if you like the start to reach 70 million common charges.
