BOX OFFICE: “Batman” lands another $66 million, “Dog” closes in on $50

“The Batman” managed to hold onto almost 50% of its opening weekend take and stir up another $66.3 million Friday-Sun, cleaning the $400 million mark worldwide by the end of the weekend.

That’s all based on a Friday take of nearly $19 ($18.7). Wonder if they’ll make a sequel?

Uncharted” managed another $9.2 million, “Spider Man” another $4. Tom Holland keeps winning.

“Dog” is turning out to be a family picture (ish) with legs, clearing $5.3 million and headed past $50 million by Tuesday.

Pixar/Disney sent the puberty cartoon “Turning Red” direct to streaming, which might have tamped down fake outrage pushback — the subject matter isn’t really something under 8s will connect with. And it would have been lucky to clear $25 million, and that’s a tiny audience. But as points out, that’s one reason “Sing II” is still making money months after its release. There’s no animated family competition.

That’s all because NOTHING new, no major wide releases, hit theaters this week.

Box Office Pro notes that “Jackass” has cleared $56, and will finish its low-budget run in the $60 million range.
