Will Smith Returns as the Summer Box Office King

The Box Office Report has been updated with studio estimates for the four-day Memorial Day holiday weekend. Click here for the full box office estimates of the top 12 films and then check back on Monday for the final figures based on actual box office.

It’s been over three years since we’ve seen Will Smith on the big screen, but he reminded us why he’s one of the biggest box office stars in the universe this extended holiday weekend as his new movie Men in Black 3 (Sony), co-starring Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin, debuted at #1 with an estimated $70 million over the four-day weekend, while taking in $203 million globally. It averaged roughly $16.5 thousand per site in a combination of 2D, 3D and 3D IMAX.

Opening in 4,248 locations on Friday, Men in Black grossed $55 million over the three-day portion of the weekend, which is just slightly higher than the previous two installments made in their first weekends–although both previous movies also opened two or three days before the weekend over the 4th of July holiday. It may have been expected to do bigger business considering the ten years of ticket price inflation since Men in Black 2, which grossed $190 million domestically, as well as the higher prices for IMAX and 3D tickets.

The other $133.2 million made by MIB3 was brought in from 106 international territories, opening #1 in all of them. IMAX reported yesterday that $12.5 million of that four-day worldwide gross was amassed from the 473 IMAX screens on which Smith’s action-comedy was shown.

New MIB III Featurette “The Work of Rick Baker”

We have your first look at a new featurette on Men in Black 3 that takes you inside the world of Rick Baker. You can check out his alien effects work using the player below!

Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on May 25th, the Barry Sonnenfeld-directed sequel stars Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Jemaine Clement, Emma Thompson, Nicole Scherzinger, Alice Eve and Michael Stuhlbarg.

In Men in Black 3, Agents J (Smith) and K (Jones) are back… in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner.
