Hotel Transylvania 3... becomes number one in US

The animated adventure Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation is the No. 1 movie in North America, earning $44.1 million in receipts during its opening weekend, announced Sunday.

Sony's animated family feature picked up US$46.4 million overseas the past weekend for a global start of US$100 million.

The third instalment of the franchise, features the voice of Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg and Kathryn Hahn - carried an $80 million production budget.

"We took the No. 1 slot this weekend with a tremendous amount of competition". While this is better than the $22 million debut of Johnson's 2017 flop Baywatch, it is below the studio's $30 million prediction, and well under Jumanji's $36.1 opening.

"Skyscraper's" debut wasn't enough to secure the No. 2 slot, which went to the second weekend of Marvel's "Ant-Man and the Wasp" with $29.5 million from 4,206 locations.

Internationally, the film, starring Paul Rudd and Avangeline Lily as the super-hero insects, added $35.3 million this weekend, pushing its global cume to $283.7 million.

Skyscraper made an estimated $25.4 million in its first three days, and entered the chart in third place. "Skyscraper" is set in China, so it's possible that by the time the film opens there next week, the weak domestic returns will be beside the point.

Universal's head of domestic distribution Jim Orr emphasized "Skyscraper's" reliance on overseas markets.

Incredibles 2 took fourth place with $16.2 million, bringing its domestic take to a stunning $535.8 million. However, that order could fluctuate when final numbers are tallied on Monday.

Meanwhile, Annapurna's "Sorry to Bother You" nabbed seventh place at the domestic box office.

By way of comparison, Oscar-winner The Incredibles, which opened in November 2004, finished its theatrical run with a $261 million domestic / $371 million foreign gross for a worldwide total of $633 million. The Brad Bird-directed sequel continues its unbelievable run, not only as the highest domestic grossing animated film of all-time, but the ninth-highest domestic grossing film of all-time. It has made $535.8 million to date, soaring past Finding Dory's $486.3 million.
