‘Beyond’ Attracts A Much Different Competitor

‘Secret Life of Pets’ a surprise contender going into weekend

Paramount Pictures was looking at a busy week of competition on July 22 for “Star Trek: Beyond,” primarily from the animated feature “Ice Age: Collision Course” and a second week of the “Ghostbusters” reboot.

But it looks like a rather big box office surprise might be the real competition for “Beyond” if it doesn’t have a strong opening weekend.

“The Secret Life of Pets” from Universal Pictures posted a second solid weekend, losing just half of its massive opening the weekend before, to hold on to the top spot at the box office. Its $50.6 million second week bested “Ghostbusters,” which pulled in $46 million on its premiere, debuting in second place.

That brings the two-week total of “Pets” to $203.2 million, according to The Numbers, and a film that could possibly grab another $30 million next week, especially with “Ice Age” getting a cold reception from critics. Then again, “Collision Course” is part of an animated franchise that already has generated $2.8 billion worldwide, so it’s possible “Ice Age” and “Pets” could cancel each other out.
