'Vacation' Misfires on Opening Day with $3.8 MillionJuly 30, 2015 07:15 AM

by BoxOffice Staff

Warner Bros. reports that the Vacation revamp grossed a soft $3.82 million on opening day Wednesday, including Tuesday night's $1.2 million early show earnings. Unfortunately, that puts the sequel 44 percent behind the $6.78 million first day take of August 2013's We're the Millers, which also opened on a Wednesday. If Vacation can follow a similar pattern to that film, it would land around $20 million for its five-day opening, although a total under that mark looks more likely right now.

Scooting down to second place yesterday, Ant-Man was off 41 percent from last Wednesday to $3.01 million. That gives it a 13-day domestic total of $116.8 million, 8 percent behind Captain America: The First Avenger and 12 percent ahead of The Incredible Hulk.

Minions grabbed third place with $2.82 million on Wednesday, down 45.5 percent from last week. With $272.4 million in the bank so far, the prequel is pacing 2.5 percent behind Despicable Me 2.

Pixels placed fourth with $2.39 million yesterday, giving the Adam Sandler pic a six-day haul of $32.97 million. Unfortunately, the film isn't connecting in the way once hoped as it stands just 17 percent ahead of where Sandler's Jack & Jill stood at the same point in release.

In fifth place, Trainwreck grabbed almost $2 million for a 40percent drop from last Wednesday. The hit comedy's 13-day gross is a strong $68.2 million, putting it just 7 percent behind the pace of 2007's Knocked Up.

Southpaw earned $1.62 million in its sixth day of release. With a healthy total of $22.56 million so far, the film is pacing 32 percent ahead of End of Watch.

Meanwhile, Paper Towns claimed sixth place on Wednesday with a gross of $1.415 million. The young adult drama's six-day tally is $17.88 million, putting it 8 percent behind the pace of If I Stay and 71 percent behind The Fault In Our Stars.
