BOX OFFICE: “Old” pulls away, “Snake Eyes” craps out, “Space Jam” takes a dive.

M.Night Shyamalan may be an act headed for long form TV, but he managed a nice if deflated  opening weekend box office win with “Old.”

The sci-fi fantasy that’s a meditation on age that finishes with a juvenile “let’s try and EXPLAIN this” finale managed $16.5 million.

Pop the (cheap) champagne at Universal.

Paramount didn’t hide their piece of crap “Snake Eyes” from all critics, just the ones they feared. An $88 million million recycled nonsense script starring Henry Golding, it opened just over $13. Bombs away.

“Space Jam: A New Legacy” took a 69% dive it’s second weekend. It went from $32 or so to under $10 in a heartbeat.

That put it well behind “Black Widow,” which added another $11.6 million.

“Widow” is in the mid $150s in North America, and should leapfrog past the fast fading “F9” and “Quiet Place Part 2” by the end of next weekend.

“Boss Baby” cleared the $50 million mark. “”Forever Purge” is over $40.
