‘Encanto’ To Make The Whole World Sing With $70M+ Opening – Box Office Preview

While some studios have been concerned about the turnout of families with major movies during the pandemic, and have opted for a hybrid launch in homes simultaneously, Sony’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife began easing those fears last weekend with a $44M start, a third of that business from families. The Jason Reitman-sequel in its second weekend looks to do an estimated $30M-$35M over five days, armed with the power of Imax auditoriums. Afterlife made $4M on Monday and now stands at $48M.

Encanto, outside of 20th Century Studios’ Ron’s Gone Wrong, is the second animated wide release to have an exclusive theatrical window this year. Previous feature toons, Universal’s The Boss Baby: Family Business and Paramount+’s Paw Patrol, as well as Warner Bros. live-action mix Tom & Jerry were theatrical-streaming day-and-date releases in the U.S.

United Artist Releasing hopes to truly dynamite adults out of their houses with Ridley Scott’s all-star MGM drama thriller House of Gucci which is booked at 3,477 theaters, eyeing a mid-to-high teen opening over five days. Previews in the U.S./Canada start tonight at 7PM. The film is currently 65% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, but has earned fresh reviews from Associated Press, The Telegraph, The L.A. Times, Time, Variety, Entertainment Weekly and Deadline‘s own Pete Hammond. House of Gucci is opening in 45 overseas markets via Universal and MGM, with France opening tomorrow, Mexico and Brazil on Thursday, and the UK and Spain on Friday.

Sony-Screen Gems has the Constantin reboot of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City which goes back to the roots of the Capcom shooter zombie videogame. The genre movie is booked at 2,800 theaters, with Sony looking toward an $8M-$10M five-day start. Rival studios believe it has a good chance to land in the teens, the Johannes Roberts-directed movie currently 38% on Rotten Tomatoes. Previews for the $25M production start at 3 PM today in 2,320 locations. With the departure of Milla Jovovich as lead zombie shooter Alice, Kaya Scodelario takes up the guns as Claire Redfield.

Encanto is dubbed theatrically in 41 languages, including the first time the studio has dubbed in Georgian. In regards to the Latina America version, it was dubbed with 100% Colombian actors in Colombia.  While Beatriz did not recur her role in that cut, the original cast members from the film came in to dub their authentic Colombian Spanish roles: Angie Cepeda – (“Julieta”, who also dubbed herself in Italian), María Cecilia Botero (“Abuela Alma”), Mauro Castillo (“Félix”), Carolina Gaitán (“Pepa”), Olga Lucía Vives (“Mirabel”) and Maluma (“Mariano”). The Colombian Spanish version of Encanto is also being distributed in Spain.
