Paramount’s action-adventure sequel Top Gun: Maverick took the top spot at the box office for the second weekend in a row with a projected $86.0 sophomore weekend, declining only -32% to lead for a second frame. Last weekend, Maverick broke the 15-year record for the biggest Memorial Day weekend of all time. To be clear, this is not only a hit, but becoming Tom Cruise‘s biggest movie to date.
Ahead of its domestic debut next weekend, Universal’s sci-fi thriller sequel Jurassic World: Dominion opened in 15 overseas markets, earning $55.4M. Look for Joey’s review of the film during the week.
Top markets included Mexico ($18.1M) and South Korea ($15.1M). In both markets, Dominion marked the #3 Hollywood opening of the pandemic era, in both nations behind only Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
After leading for the past three consecutive frames, Disney and Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness dropped -42% to $9.2 in second place.
Based on the television show Bob’s Burgers, 20th Century Studios’ animated comedy The Bob’s Burgers Movie fell -63% to $4.5M, remaining in third place.
Two new releases rounded out the top ten. David Cronenberg‘s Crimes of the Future nabbed $1.1M, while Watcher debuted to $815K. Morbius also returned to theaters but couldn’t muster much attention, at all, taking in only another $85K.
