For the First Time in Decades, ‘Jaws’ and ‘Jurassic Park’ Topped the Box Office Charts This Weekend

Our weekly box office reports here on Bloody Disgusting have gotten very interesting throughout the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with independent genre films like The Wretched and Becky topping the charts thanks to profitable runs on the newly revived drive-in circuit. But it’s not a new release genre movie that topped the box office this past weekend…

First released in theaters way back in 1993, Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park was #1 at the box office over the weekend, scaring up $517,642 in 230 theaters (via Forbes).

Number two this past weekend? Spielberg’s Jaws, which made $516,366 from 187 theaters. Yes, it was Spielberg vs. Spielberg at the box office. And, well, Spielberg won.

Other movies currently in release at drive-ins and the few theaters that are open across the US include new releases like The Hunt and The Invisible Man, as well as classics including The Goonies, Back to the Future and E.T. The numbers for these releases aren’t actually being reported by sites like Box Office Mojo, which currently lists new horror film Followed at the top of this past weekend’s charts. That film, however, made $127,000, considerably less than what was made by other films whose numbers have been a bit harder to track down.

It seems yet another Summer of Spielberg is upon us, and it’s only fitting that Jaws is celebrating 45 years by once again making a splash at the summer box office. The 1975 masterpiece is, after all, the film that paved the way for the entire Summer Blockbuster season as we know it today. The more things change, the more they seem to stay exactly the same.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
