Eternals Still Soaring on Top at the Theater Box Office



For the second weekend in a row, Marvel’s Eternals fended off its strongest competition from Paramount Pictures’ Clifford the Big Red Dog.

The comic book movie earned $27.5 million, a modest drop of 61.4 percent from the previous weekend. It grossed over $118 million at the domestic box office and reached $281 million worldwide.

With a strong desire for family films, Clifford the Big Red Dog came in surprisingly in second place at $16.42 million for the weekend after its midweek opening with a total gross of $22 million. It is a strong showing since the film is also streaming on Paramount+.

For the rest of the top five, Dune fell to third place with $5.5 million, a decrease of 29.4 percent, with a total gross of $93 million in the domestic box office. The good news for this film is that the sequel is greenlit due to its international box office that generated over $258 million overseas.

James Bond’s No Time to Die fell in one place to earn $2.6 million, a drop of 23.5 percent, with a total domestic haul of $150 million. The more impressive numbers for the last Daniel Craig’s appearance as James Bond is with its worldwide take of over $708 million worldwide. Yes, James Bond will certainly be back.

In fifth place, Sony’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage earned $4 million, a decrease of 10.4 percent from the previous weekend. It generated over $202 million in the domestic box office and over $441 million worldwide.

The only other notable theatrical opening for the weekend is Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast in eighth place at $1.8 million. Focus Features limited the number of screens to 580 but impressively took in $3,103 on average per screen.

For the next weekend, it should be getting a theatrical boost with the new Ghostbusters: Afterlife for nostalgic fans. For those into the dramas, King Richard with Will Smith and C’mon C’mon with Joaquin Phoenix will be in select theaters.
