Last weekend at the box office, Marvel Studios’ Black Widow shattered records, raking in a whopping weekend total of $215 million globally, the profits coming from both box offices from around the world as well as from the film’s release on Disney+’s Premium Access program.
But it may come as a surprise for many to learn that the final outing for Scarlett Johansson‘s Natasha Romanoff is not the highest-grossing film of the week, but rather Malcolm D. Lee‘s Space Jam: A New Legacy, which managed to bring in a total of $31.65 million at the box office which is quite impressive all things considered.
The brand new horror flick Escape Room: Tournament of Champions also brought in a total of $8.8 million against a budget of $15 million. The first outing raked in a total of $155.7M against a budget of $9 million. Time will only tell if the sequel will earn as much, but it’s very unlikely at this rate. Also cracking the top ten, albeit with more limited releases, was the documentary Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain, as well as Pig.
Here’s the full list of the top ten films of the week:
- Space Jam: A New Legacy – $31.65M – 3,965 theatres
