“Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again” has been released on DVD and Blu-Ray in the United States and is already available on demand, so you can basically find it EVERYWHERE to own or rent. Those of you who have seen it in the theater (which includes probably everyone) know that Meryl Streep’s Donna, although talked about in length, is limited to a cameo performance by the end of the film – singing two songs nevertheless. So if you’d like to revisit her renditions of “My Love, My Life” and “Super Trouper”, make sure to grab your copy, or get the soundtrack, or both. Over 300 screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery. Enjoy!

The sequel to the hit 2008 musical has successfully surpassed a $100 million gross at the US box office, Screen Daily reports. Another $5.8 million was added to its cumulative total this weekend, bringing it to a lively $103.8 million in the US alone. Its global haul is now thought to be north of $280 million. The first movie made around $144.1 million in the US upon its release in 2008 – and while it seems unlikely now that this follow-up will match it, it’s still done very impressively indeed. It’s also still doing well in the UK, after reigning at No1 for three consecutive weekends – beating even Mission: Impossible – Fallout and Ant-Man and the Wasp for a hat-trick of Friday-to-Sunday victories. Whether or not it managed a fourth weekend at the top won’t be announced until tomorrow. Mamma Mia’s success is continuing on the UK album chart too: on Friday it was confirmed that it is at the top of the charts for a third straight week in the UK. The album contains the cast recordings of all the tracks heard in the movie, plus Lily James singing I Wonder (Departure) and Meryl Streep’s take on The Day Before You Came. The soundtrack to the first Mamma Mia movie is also still in the Top 10, as is the country’s second best-selling album of all time: ABBA’s Gold greatest hits collection. Whether or not the film will be followed by a Mamma Mia 3 remains to be seen, but Amanda Seyfried has said she doubts it could happen without seeming like an obvious money-grab. Thanks to Glenn for the heads-up.

“Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again” is holding up at the box office at the second spot – adding $4.8 million to its haul – after this week’s release of the new “Mission Impossible” took the predicted first place with moviegoers. But “Mamma Mia” has another market to score – as long as Tom Cruise doesn’t start singing on “MI” – the film’s soundtrack is doing great numbers in various markets, including a No. 1 spot in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. After initially debuting inside the top 10 last week, the soundtrack that accompanies the second Mamma Mia! musical film has bolted to the top of the album chart in the U.K. According to the Official Charts Company, the upbeat collection shifted 35,000 equivalent units this frame, which was enough to land it on the throne. Judy Craymer told OfficialCharts.com: “It is fantastic news that the soundtrack to Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again has gone to Number 1. It’s the celebration of our wonderful cast featuring Christine Baranski, Pierce Brosnan, Dominic Cooper, Colin Firth, Andy Garcia, Lily James, Amanda Seyfried, Stellan Skarsgård, Julie Walters and Meryl Streep – and of course Cher, singing Fernando.” Many thanks to Glenn for collecting all these information. Much appreciated!

Over the weekend, “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” grossed an estimated $34.4 million. The numbers could shift when final weekend earnings are tallied on Monday. Overseas, the female-fueled pic debuted to $42.4 million from its first 43 markets for a global bow of $76.8 million. The U.K. led with $13.1 million. The female-fueled Mamma Mia 2 is by no means a disappointment in North America and opened in line with expectations. As it turned out, Equalizer 2 beat projections, thanks to an ethnically diverse audience and keen interest among men. (Rival studios show the movie coming in closer to $35 million, but Sony is counting on a strong Sunday.) Internationally, it only debuted in 11 markets, earning $3.3 million. Mamma Mia 2’s domestic opening came in 22 percent head of the first Mamma Mia!, which opened to $27.7 million in summer 2008, not adjusted for inflation. A big curiosity factor is Cher, who along with Lily James, are among the newcomers to the Mamma Mia! brand. Returning stars included Amanda Seyfried, Meryl Streep Julie Walters, Christine Baranski, Dominic Cooper, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan and Stellan Skarsgard. The story traverses time to when Streep’s character (Donna) is pregnant. Mamma Mia 2 is one of the few 2018 summer event films targeting females, who made up more than 80 percent of Friday’s audience, according to comScore.

This evening, the cast and crew of “Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again” – including Meryl Streep, Cher, Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Christine Baranski – have all graced the blue carpet for the film’s big London premiere in London.People spoke to Cher on playing Meryl’s mother. The music icon is 72, while Streep is 69, but the age spread hardly bothers the “Believe” singer, who appears in the new Mamma Mia movie as the grandmother to Amanda Seyfried’s character. “That doesn’t make any difference,” Cher said in their exclusive Facebook live talk with the cast, moderated by PEOPLE deputy editor Dan Wakeford, about the small age gap. “I was thrilled to death, and it was so silly. It was great fun, and I love her [Meryl], so it was perfect.” Cher continued, “It was great, and she was hiding watching me sing, and I was so excited. I didn’t find out until afterwards—I would have been more nervous.” Though Cher and Streep mostly filmed on different days, they did get to spend time together on the set of the Mamma Mia sequel when Streep visited and when the duo filmed “Super Trouper.” Cher and Streep previously appeared together in the 1983 movie Silkwood. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is out Friday. Lots of pictures from the premiere have been added to the photo gallery.

Universal Pictures eyes its promotional finale for next week’s theatrical release of “Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again” and they have saved the best nuggets for last. The newly-released b-roll gives us more Meryl, both behind the scenes and on stage with the complete cast. There’s also an official interview that has been used for the promotional clips we have seen so far. Also, the video archive has been updated with all the latest featurettes on the film – wishing that any of these would run for longer than a minute ;-) Screencaptures of the new material have been added as well, so head over to the video archive and the photo gallery, in that or in reverse order. Enjoy!

“Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again” will be released around the world next week. In the past couple of days, lots of new clips, featurettes and interviews with the cast and crew have been published, unfortunately none of them features Meryl Streep. The “big question” still seems to be if Donna is dead or alive in the sequel/prequel to 2008’s mega hit. The more important question might be just how much of a part she is in the film – after all, her name is featured on the poster and she has participated in the promotional press junket as featured in the promotional clips. I guess we have to wait and find out ourselves next week. In the meantime, I’ve compiled a list of all promotional videos, which I’m sure you’re eager to see, with or without Meryl. “Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again” releases theaters on July 18 in Europe and July 20 in the United States.
