As predicted, The Bad Guys maintained the top spot this weekend, but it was a quiet time at the box office as we awaited the arrival of Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness.
The Bad Guys earned $ 16.1 million over the weekend, representing a not-so-bad drop of 33% from the previous frame. Heading into Sunday, it looked like a $ 14 million weekend, but Sunday estimates are said to be better than expected for a healthier ending. To date, The Bad Guys has earned $ 44.4 million as it becomes a dormant family hit at the box office.
Maintaining second place is Sonic The Hedgehog 2 which earned $ 11.3 million. That’s a 28% drop, and it proves that different styles of family movies can thrive in the box office, even with direct competition. Ahead of the weekend, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 became the most lucrative video game adaptation at the home box office, and it still has some gas left in the tank. That Sonic the successor has earned $ 160.9 million to date at the domestic box office.
In third place we find Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore which had a better team at weekend three with a 41% drop to gross $ 8.3 million. Although the grip was better this weekend, Dumbledore’s secrets continues to be a disappointment at the home ticket office. The film has earned $ 79.5 million to date, which is far from its reported $ 200 million budget.
The Norwegian maintains fourth place with a gross of $ 6.3 million, a decrease of 49% compared to the previous weekend. The good news is that the drop was a little over 50% this weekend, but the problem is that the opening from last weekend was so soft that it’s hard to get back from it. To date, The Norwegian has earned $ 22.8 million at the domestic ticket office.
To round the top five, as I predicted, is All at once, which earned $ 5.5 million this weekend. This is actually a 2% increase over the previous weekend, as the A24 platform release continues to prove successful. Word of mouth has been gradual and it continues to thrive. I suppose the film will continue to entice cinema-goers and become a true runaway hit for the studio. To date, the multiverse sensation has earned $ 35.4 million at the domestic box office.
