Elemental poised for a spectacular second weekend at the box office

Elemental's three-day opening weekend falls just behind Toy Story's abysmal debut, making it the second-lowest for a Pixar film in history.

Pixar's mesmerizing romantic comedy, Elemental, has defied initial box office disappointment and triumphantly rebounded with an impressive second-week box office performance.

According to a report from THR, early box office numbers show Sony's No Hard Feelings taking the lead into the weekend in domestic box office earnings. However, the film will enjoy a short-lived reign as either Sony's other blockbuster, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, or Elemental, is poised to claim the top spot over the weekend.

No Hard Feelings, a sex comedy featuring Jennifer Lawrence that follows the story of a struggling young woman who dates a shy 19-year-old, had already amassed $6.25 million by Friday. Industry projections estimate that it will bring in $15 million during its opening weekend.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse swung into the weekend, securing the second spot after raking in $5.7 million and pushing its domestic earnings to an impressive $303.4 million. With just around $30 million shy of surpassing Spider-Man: Homecoming and $87 million behind Far from Home, it's only a matter of time before the animated film surpasses both milestones.

Spider-Man: Homecoming had the second-biggest global IMAX opening for a Sony film with $18 million.

Coming in at a strong third place is Elemental with $5.6 million, bringing its domestic earnings to a respectable $52.6 million. While Pixar's latest release initially seemed like a box office bomb with only $29.6 million in its opening weekend, Elemental has shown remarkable resilience throughout the week, with projections now indicating a successful weekend to bring its total to $65 million.

Unfortunately, The Flash hasn't fared as well at the box office with a meager opening weekend earning of $55.1 million, the DCU film is projected to experience a substantial 70% decline in its second weekend. Estimates suggest that The Flash will be in tough competition with No Hard Feelings, vying for the third spot with projected earnings ranging from $14 to $16 million.

The Flash's projected earnings for the opening weekend were $70-$75 million.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is once again bracing for an upsetting weekend. Currently holding the sixth position with a meager $3.2 million, the Paramount Pictures film has only managed to accumulate $114 million in domestic earnings.

Despite its global box office collection of $290 million, which is expected to cross the $300 million mark by the weekend's end, Rise of the Beasts remains the lowest-grossing installment in the Transformers franchise.

Asteroid City grossed $3.8 million on its first day of wide release, including $1.1 million from Thursday night previews.

Wes Anderson, however, will be brimming with joy following the stellar success of Asteroid City. The delightful dramedy's remarkable $853,382 from a mere six theaters during its opening weekend is nothing to scoff at. As it entered its second weekend, the film secured the fifth position, accumulating a decent $3.8 million. Projections now indicate a cumulative domestic gross of $9.6 million by the end of the weekend.
