Sony Pictures’ Ghostbusters: Afterlife is holding strong to second place with $10.3 million in its third week of release to cross the $100 million mark domestically to $102 million. It fell 57.2 percent from the previous weekend. Its worldwide numbers climbed to $145 million to date.

In third place, the drama House of Gucci remained in the spot with $$6.77 million, a drop of 53 percent. Its cumulative haul reached $33.6 million domestically.
