Box Office: ‘Knock At The Cabin’, ’80 For Brady’ Kick ‘Avatar’ Out Of Top Spot

  1. Knock At the Cabin (review)- $14.2M

It only took eight weeks, but finally, the new releases were strong enough to knock Avatar: The Way of Water out of the top spot. M. Night Shyamalan’s apocalyptic thriller Knock At the Cabin led domestically with $14.2M. Globally, it has $21.2M.  The film stars Dave Bautista, Jonathan Groff, Rupert Grint, and more, telling a dark story of a family of three held captive by a doomsday foursome with an impossible demand. The stateside debut is just $2M short of Shyamalan’s previous film, 2021’s Old. 

2. 80 for Brady (review)- $12.5M

Who knows if the second (and “final”) retirement of Tom Brady helped boost 80 for Brady, but the film did extremely well for being targeted at an older demo. The Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Sally Field, and Rita Moreno comedy about a group of women who attend the Super Bowl because they love Tom Brady, earned $12.5M. That’s not bad considering it was led by discounted matinee ticket pricing that will be there for the entirety of its run.

3. Avatar: The Way of Water– $10.8M/$636.4M

Globally, James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water has hit $2.174B, good for fourth-place on the all-time list. That puts Cameron’s own Titanic in the crosshairs, which may be why he’s re-releasing the 1997 classic into theaters soon.

4. Puss in Boots: The Last Wish– $7.9M/$151.2M

5. BTS: Yet to Come in Cinemas– $6.2M/$9.1M

6. A Man Called Otto– $4.1M/$53M

7. M3GAN– $3.8M/$87.5M

8. Missing– $3.7M/$23M

9. The Chosen Season 3: Episode 1 & 2– $3.6M/$18.2M

10. Pathaan– $2.7M/$14.2M
