Jason Bourne (2016)

It’s been 10 years since Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) walked away from the agency that trained him to become a deadly weapon. Hoping to draw him out of the shadows,
CIA director Robert Dewey assigns hacker and counterinsurgency expert Heather Lee to find him. Lee suspects that former operative Nicky Parsons is also looking for him.
As she begins tracking the duo, Bourne finds himself back in action battling a sinister network that utilizes terror and technology to maintain unchecked power.
The re-pairing of Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass with Jason Bourne
seems to be paying off for Universal Pictures as the latest in the action franchise is on track to gross $22M+ tonight on its way to right around a $60M weekend, which will mark the highest opening for a Damon-centric film (The Martian grossed $54.3M). It garnered an A- CinemaScore.
Jason Bourne, which we’ve heard is in the budget range of $120M to $135M, should do well as it is releasing in 46 countries day and date with its U.S. bow.
If the estimates hold, it will rank as the second-highest opener for Damon as Bourne picture, only behind The Bourne Ultimatum which was released in 2007 and had a three-day debut of $69.2M.
However, one studio’s success, in this case, is another’s misery as the mostly male demo heads to Jason Bourne, Paramount’s over $185M budgeted Star Trek Beyondlooks to fall over 60% in its second weekend even as it crosses $100M — a milestoneGhostbusters finally accomplished in its third weekend out. Ouch and ouch.
And the female audience? They have two great choices this weekend. STX Entertainment’s R-rated comedy Bad Moms as we predicted earlier started to drop a bit and now is looking like $26M to $27M for its debut weekend after pulling in about $9.6M today. With an A CinemaScore, this raucous comedy should have strong legs and continue to play as positive word-of-mouth takes hold.
It’s currently playing just under Spy which took in $10M on its way to a $29M weekend. Trainwreck, which had a $10.7M Friday, went on to gross 30.1M for its debut weekend. Bad Moms, which was produced by Bill Block and Suzanne Todd, was initially scheduled for an Aug. 19th release before the studio decided to pull it into prime summertime.
