September 13, 2023 - The summer season produced surprise wins for Barbie and Oppenheimer but poor results for Mission: Impossible 7 and Indiana Jones V.

The summer movie season is over, with surprising wins for Barbie and Oppenheimer and underwhelming performances from Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.

May 5-Sep 4, in season releases only

1) Barbie – $1,404,224,120
2) Oppenheimer – $891,205,895
3) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 – $845,555,777
4) Fast X – $704,709,660
5) Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse – $689,664,223
6) The Little Mermaid – $569,540,409
7) Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One – $563,779,673
8) Elemental – $484,201,610
9) Transformers: Rise of the Beasts – $438,966,392
10) Meg 2: The Trench – $386,011,652
11) Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny – $382,667,222

The poor performances of Mission: Impossible 7 and Indy 5 are likely linked to the phenomenal impact of the “Barbenheimer” effect ,which saw the top two movies grossing a combined $2.3 billion.

Paramount and Disney’s pain will be further exacerbated by their movies’ ballooning budgets during the Covid pandemic, thought to be around $300m each, with additional marketing budgets likely in the area of $100 million a piece.
