Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse was once again the champion at the box office, almost an entire month after its release.
Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse dropped 19% at the box office over its previous weekend; dropping not nearly as drastically as other movies this week, which landed it the top spot. Reports of multiple versions of the movie and continued positive word of mouth certainly help. Still, with only $19.3 Million according to Box Office Mojo, it was not the strongest weekend at the box office overall.
Elemental saw a 37% drop, bringing its weekend earnings to $18.5 Million; and putting it in the second-place spot. Elemental will have a second life on Disney+, so Disney may not be as concerned as it otherwise would be about its box office fizzling.
The Flash Continues WBD’s Unsettling Trend At The Box Office
The Flash was hit the hardest out of these movies in subsequent weeks. In its second week, the movie dropped a whopping 72% over its previous week; making $15.3 Million. For context, Black Adam saw a 59% in its second week; and Shazam! Fury of the Gods saw a 69% drop in its second week. The Flash once again shows an unsettling trend with Warner Bros. Discovery’s DC movies of movies having significant and alarming drops in their box office.
No Hard Feelings Jennifer Lawerence On That Box Office Debut
No Hard Feelings was the only new movie this week, and while it did outperform it’s $10 Million expectation; at $15.1 Million it still wasn’t enough to secure the top spot. In our review, reviewer Kevin Fenix said:
No Hard Feelings fully embraces the risque fun of young, excited, and largely inexperienced and over-fantasized sex of young adults/old teenagers who are coming into their sexual age. Plenty of debauchery and moments are totally awkward to watch with your parents. Plus, there is a heartwarming message that embraces the messiness of real-life relationships and avoids the cliche ending of people who were sexually charged and lusting throughout the whole movie, miraculously falling in love at the end. Jennifer Lawrence is effortlessly enjoyable and wonderfully gets this film off.
Rounding out the Top 5 was Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, which brought in $11.6 Million.
With such a weak Box Office at the moment, this week’s new arrival of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny should hopefully bring some life into the Box Office. At the very least, Europe is expecting that Dial Of Destiny will help revive the box office. Will it, and if so, will it be enough to overtake Across The Spider-Verse? We’ll have to find out next week!
