BOX OFFICE: ‘Toy Story 4’ has STEEP fall off, ‘Annabelle 3’ clears $16

The continued demand for “Toy Story 4” seems strong enough, until you compare it to other “Toy Story” movies and Pixar releases in general. A $120 million opening that was well below projections is followed by a $53-57 million second weekend, a 53-58% drop from a series where 40% week to week slide is the norm.

“Annabelle Comes Home” opened to a big Wed. audience and will have a $16-17 million weekend, right in the nose with projections, to follow up that. It could manage $30 million over 5 days, but $28 million seems to be the ceiling.

“Yesterday” is managing a $14 million weekend, with good exit tracking per Ot could be a counter programming hit as the summer progresses. “Aladdin” continues to pile up the cash, “Child’s Play” does not.
