Box Office: ‘Bullet Train’ Keeps Chugging Along At #1 During A Quiet Weekend

  1. Bullet Train– $13.4M/$54.4M

There are fewer major theatrical releases this year than ever before, and that makes light weekends like this one sadly quite common. Bullet Train once again tops the week with $13.4M and a $54M total domestically. The Brad Pitt actioner, which is great by the way, has $114M overall worldwide.

2. DC League of Super-Pets– $7.17M/$58.3M

3. Top Gun: Maverick– $7.15M/$673.8M

Paramount’s high-flying sequel Top Gun: Maverick might never touch ground. Twelve weeks into its incredible, box office-shattering run, it’s earned another $7M for $673M domestically. That ranks in the top five all-time for a fun of this length. Worldwide, Tom Cruise has gunned down a whopping $1.377B.

4. Thor: Love and Thunder– $5.31M/$325.3M

5. Nope– $5.3M/$107.5M

6. Minions: The Rise of Gru– $4.8M/$343.7M

7. Where the Crawdads Sing– $3.9M/$72.1M

8. Bodies Bodies Bodies (review)- $3.2M/$3.5M

After a very limited release last week, A24’s GenZ horror Bodies Bodies Bodies expanded to 1290 theaters. The results weren’t anything to text home about, with just $3.2M. The buzz surrounding this one has been great, but like last year’s Zola, also from A24, just because something is trendy on social media doesn’t mean people will buy a ticket to it. On the plus side, this one probably didn’t cost very much.

9. Elvis– $2.5M/$141.2M

People love Elvis all around the world, and proof positive of that is Baz Luhrmann’s rockin’ biopic’s $261M haul. That buys a lot of blue suede shoes.

10 Fall– $2.5M

I’ve heard so much about Fall that I’m surprised this didn’t do better. Scott Mann’s disaster flick about a pair of climbers trapped atop a 2000-ft. tower, earned $2.5M in 1548 theaters. Much of the buzz surrounding this one has been questions over the aerial effects, which are apparently amazing, and the filmmakers being asked by Lionsgate to remove, using deep fake tech from a company co-created by Mann, multiple uses of the word “fuck” to achieve a PG-13 rating.
