Do you recall the movies? You consume popcorn as a renowned person is projected onto a screen in a vast, dark room?
The likelihood of you remembering a movie is low if you’re American, given that not many people went to the theatres this weekend.
There’s only one new and significant movie opening in theatres this weekend, and everyone’s presumably waiting for Wakanda Forever, so we can’t say we’re surprised that this list looks so identical to last week’s.
Notably, Black Adam has remained at the top for three consecutive weeks despite earning only $18 million this week (for a grand total of $137 million).
One Piece Film: Red, the newest adventure of Monkey D. Luffy and the other Straw Hat Pirates follows. After its first weekend, it had made $9 million. (If you’re unfamiliar with One Piece, the manga has just over a hundred volumes, so there’s that.)
Regular fourth-place finisher Smile landed in fourth with $4 million, Prey For The Devil slid to fifth with $3.8 million, and Lyle, Lyle Crocodile, crept up to sixth with a 22 percent jump and $3.3 million. The rest of the list features familiar titles.
The Banshees Of Inisherin, directed by Martin McDonagh, increased its distribution by 274% from the previous week to over 900 cinemas (up from fewer than 100) but only managed to earn $2 million during its third weekend in release.
