Movie theaters have been slowly reopening all around the world, and because many viewers have been stuck inside having to watch their entertainment at home instead of in nice leather seats with a big crowd, it seems like more and more people are heading out to their local theatre to get reminded of just how much fun the theatre experience is.
Although it may have been released two weeks ago, Justin Lin‘s F9 still reigns supreme at the worldwide box office raking in a weekend total of $24M million which is certainly impressive and proves that the Fast and Furious franchise isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
A surprise second-place spot goes to The Boss Baby: Family Business which managed to bring in a weekend total of $17 million, just in its opening weekend alone. Kids are probably wanting to go back to the theaters to see the newest animated flick which would certainly explain the film’s popularity. The Forever Purge had a decent opening, hitting over $12 million as that franchise comes to an end. On the flip-side, in terms of scale, indie Zola managed a top ten finish with smaller theater counts and a much narrower target audience.
Here’s the full list of the top ten films of the week:
- F9: The Fast Saga – $24M (-66%) – 4,203 theatres
