It’s not a vintage DreamWorks opening, but “The Bad Guys” own the Omicron 3 weekend with a $25 million+. I think Sat. and Sunday could push it closer to $27.
“Sonic 2” is coming in second at just over $15 million. mmm There’s an audience for these films, and when there are no films for that audience, they don’t show up.
Still having a hard time believing “The Northman” cost $70 million. But Vikings overexposure or not, a $13.5 million is a decent opening for a Skarsgard/Anya Taylor-Joy vehicle with blood and gore and nudity and trippy Viking rituals.
“The Secrets of Dumbledore” has fallen off a cliff, $13.5 million on its second weekend.
Fanboy driven hype the “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent” might have had you thinking Nicolas Cage was headed for a blockbuster weekend. $7.17 million is nothing to sneeze at, but…
“Everything Everywhere All at Once” is showing that you don’t need guys and gals in capes to sell a multiverse story, pulling in another $5.4 million this weekend. It’s earned $27 million+, and didn’t cost $300 million in effects, talent and Marvel licensing fees.
Another movie with a built-in audience is the date-movie/action comedy “The Lost City,” which is on its way to another $4.6 million this weekend.
“Father Stu” managed another $3.2.
“Morbius” is falling right off the charts, down to $2.25 million or so this weekend.
