Another weekend has come to a close for theaters across the U.S., and it doesn’t appear things are getting any better.

With Tenet remaining the biggest release since the pandemic began, things are not looking promising. Tenet took in $6.7M this weekend, off about 29% from its opening weekend despite an increase in venues.

If the numbers seem slightly odd, you aren’t wrong. Last week it was reported that Tenet had taken in $20M, but it was later revealed that included a bunch of weekday numbers as well as some previews. The actual haul was only $9M for Tenet‘s opening Friday through Sunday. Globally the film sits at $207M off of a $224M budget.

Second place went to The New Mutants with $2.05M for a new total of $15.29M. Globally it sits at $29.29M off of a $67M budget.

Unhinged landed in third place with $1.5M for a new domestic total of $13.82M and $21.98M globally off of a $33M budget.

As it stands right now, the only other wide release this month is Greenland on Sept. 25. Wonder Woman 1984 has been pulled from its Oct. 2 release date, so it appears things won’t be getting better for some time.
