Box Office: “Alien” fades, “Everything” picks up, “Guardians” clears $300 million

guardians2“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” roared back Saturday to swallow a big chunk of “Alien: Convent” cash — a $15 million to $12 million beat-down. “Covenant” is now projected to maybe hit $36 million.

Word of mouth? Not helping.

“Guardians,” not any as charming/funny as the first film, may clear $35. “Covenant” is now opening far lower on the all-time “Alien” openings scale. 

“Everything, Everything” now looks like a wash — a $12 million+ opening. Maybe it’ll break even, long run.

The “Wimpy Kid” franchise road picture didn’t reboot this tween series — $7 million will not give Alicia Silverstone and Tom Everett Scott work for years to come.

“King Arthur” didn’t recreate all that opening weekend buzz (snort) or audience. It will lose all its screens before it clears $40 million ($26 now).

“Lowriders” earned $1 million this weekend, a steady spike for a film in limited release.
