Box Office: ‘Last Voyage Of The Demeter’ Shipwrecks As ‘Barbie’ Remains On Top

1. Barbie– $33.7M/$526.3M

The Barbie RV continues to back over the competition, with the film easily beating all new releases with $33M. Worldwide, the film has passed $1.18B, becoming the 2nd-largest film ever for Warner Bros., overtaking Aquaman.

2. Oppenheimer– $18.8M/$264.2M

Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer is still blowing up, with the worldwide tally now at $649M. Accounting for $75.8M of that is IMAX, the largest ever domestically for Nolan and the 4th-highest ever for IMAX.

3. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem– $15.7M/$72.7M

4. Meg 2: The Trench– $12.7M/$54.1M

5. The Last Voyage of the Demeter (review)- $6.5M

This isn’t surprising at all. There has been practically zero hype or buzz for The Last Voyage of the Demeter, which was a really cool idea for a Dracula film a few years ago. But after tons of delays and other issues, the film arrived with no fanfare at all. The $6.5M debut is especially weak when you consider it’s the only new wide release. Sure, it’s going against the continued might of Barbenheimer, TMNT, and Meg 2, but it shouldn’t have sunk this hard this quickly.

6. Haunted Mansion– $5.6M/$52.8M

7. Talk to Me– $5.1M/$31.3M

8. Sound of Freedom– $4.8M/$172.8M

9. Mission: Impossible-Dead Reckoning Part 1– $4.6M/$159.5M

10. Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny– $899K/$172.6M
