This weekend at the box office saw the sequel to 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express – Death on the Nile – take the top spot, earning $12.8 million. The film saw the return of director and star Kenneth Branagh while boasting an almost entirely new cast, including Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Annette Bening and Sophie Okonedo.
Meanwhile in second place, Jackass Forever holds control, but still dipped 65% to an estimated $8.05M after opening to $23.15M last weekend. That’s the largest second-weekend drop ever for a Jackass installment (including the 2013 spinoff Bad Grandpa).
Brand new comedy Marry Me starring Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson took the third place at the box office this weekend, with an estimated $8M from 3,642 locations. Overseas, Marry Me grossed an estimated $8.53M from more than 65 territories, bringing its global opening total to $16.53M.
Box-office titan Spider-Man: No Way Home swung into fourth place this weekend, earning a total of $7.15M for a total of $759M to date. That puts the Sony release just shy of Avatar’s lifetime total of $760.5M, which No Way Home will surpass early this week to become the third highest-grossing film of all time in North America.
