It is less than a week until Matt Reeves‘ The Batman hits theatres (look for Joey’s review tomorrow afternoon), starring Robert Pattinson as the titular superhero. The film is set to be a surefire hit, meaning that movies released this past week may have reached their peak.
Coming in first place at the box office was Ruben Fleischer‘s Uncharted in its second frame, pulling in a weekend total of $23.2 million, which sees the film take a considerable 47% drop. Could the less than favorable critic reviews factor in to the film’s box office earnings dropping by nearly half from last weekend?
In second place is Dog, the Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin directed comedy-drama road film which also stars the former and continues to play a bit above financial expectations. Its second weekend at the box office saw the film take home $10.1 million across 3.827 theatres, bringing its total earnings so far to $30.8 million.
Meanwhile in third is Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is now in its eleventh week of release. The Tom Holland superhero blockbuster epic took home $5.75 million this weekend at the box office across 3,002 theatres.
New release Studio 666 opened to a poor $1.58 million during its first weekend of release, while the Peter Dinklage-lead musical Cyrano opened to $1.4 million across 797 theatres with a soft platform release.
