Another weekend has come to a close for theaters across the U.S., and things aren’t getting any better, and you could really say it’s getting worse.
First place this weekend to the Liam Neeson action film, Honest Thief. It took in $2.35M for a new domestic total of $7.47M. Globally it sits at $10.22M.
The War With Grandpacame in second with $1.88M. It now stands at $9.7M domestically and $12.13M globally.
Third place went to Tenet with $1.3M for a new domestic total of $52.5M and a global haul of $341.5M off of a $200M budget.
The Empty Man opened in fourth place with $1.26M..
Fifth place went to with $577K.
Exhibitor Relations on Twitter pointed out that a year ago Countwdown was a little horror film that opened with $8.8M and just disappeared. But that number is more than the top five this weekend. That is not a good sign for where we’re at with films.
Our guess is it is only a matter of time before everything shuts back down at the box office with the growing COVID numbers, but we’ll just have to wait and see how this plays out.
