To the surprise of no one, a superhero film opened at the top spot this weekend. DC League of Super-Pets amassed a decent $23 million this weekend, as the film received favorable reviews and positive word-of-mouth for audiences. Jordan Peele‘s NOPE, on the other hand, dropped at 58% for its second weekend and only grossed $18 million. Not terrible for a second weekend, but not as great as last week’s.
Films like Thor: Love and Thunder, Minions: The Rise of Gru, and Top Gun: Maverick are still making lots of money, especially Maverick, which has passed Jurassic World: Dominion‘s box office record and is now the sixteenth highest-grossing film of all time!
In other record news, Everything Everywhere All At Once has become the first A24 movie to gross over $100 million at the box office. The release of the extended cut has definitely helped the studio to achieve this goal, as it is still finding new viewers every day.
B.J. Novak’s Vengeance barely made an impression this week, opening in tenth place with a $1.7 million gross. Reviews for the film have been very good so far include a rave from Joey here, and the cast Novak assembled is very impressive, though it seems audiences weren’t receptive to the trailer, or the film itself, this weekend.
