BOX OFFICE: “Black Adam” enjoys his last weekend before “Wakanda,” “One Piece Film: Red” rakes in Anime Bucks

One more big double-digit weekend take from Dwayne Johnson and the DC/Warners team, a whopping $18.5 million more for “Black Adam.” That pushes it over $123 million, and counting.

But that count is going to plummet as it loses screens and mojo from “Wakanda Forever” next weekend.

“One Piece Film: Red” is another chunka change for ChunkyRoll, an anime release that its fanbase showed up for — $9.4 million. I may get to that one this week.

“Ticket to Paradise” is reaching its older audience, with a terrific “hold” on its third weekend — $8.5 million. Julia and George have legs!

I was thinking “Smile” would clear the $100 million mark this weekend. It added $4, and it stands at over $96 now. Maybe late next week, by Sat?

The middling horror competition, “Prey for the Devil,” added $3.8. It’s all found money when your cast/production costs are this low.

“The Banshees of Inisherin” didn’t crack the top five, more on that later.
