Box Office Report for the Week of August 14th

Sony Pictures

For the second weekend in a row, David Leitch‘s Bullet Train remained at the top of the box office chart. The film grossed $13.4 million domestically, which reflects a 55% drop from its debut. The second spot on the list belongs to another holdover from last weekend, DC’s League of Super Pets. With $7.1 million, the animated adventure displayed a nice, small drop from last week. That can be surely be taken into account due to the fact that it is the last movie of the summer season aimed at families.

But perhaps the most impressive hold from the weekend came from Top Gun: Maverick. After twelve weeks in theaters, the Tom Cruise action vehicle is back at the number three spot. The film has now grossed $673 million domestically, just $5 million away from surpassing 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War.

In other news, Halina Rejin‘s Bodies Bodies Bodies finally had its anticipated wide debut, after a limited bow last weekend, where it managed to enter the top ten, grossing $3.2 million. Rounding out the top ten was another new release in Scott Mann‘s Fall, earning just $2.5 million.

Smaller films that debuted this weekend but didn’t crack the top ten were Emily the Criminal with $668K and Summering with about $31K. It’ll be interesting to see if these releases improve their position in the coming weeks, especially with the former having some very strong reviews, including Joey’s here. Thor: Love and Thunder, Minions: The Rise of Gru and Elvis are summer hits that still remain in the top ten during one of the final weekends of the season.

Here’s the full list of top ten films for the week:

1. Bullet Train (Sony): $13.4 M – 4,357 theaters
2. DC League of Super-Pets (Warner/DC) : $7.17 M – 3,803 theaters
3. Top Gun: Maverick (Paramount) : $7.15 M – 3, 181 theaters
