1. THE SUICIDE SQUAD
The Suicide Squad opened in first place this weekend with a disappointing $26.5 million. The high-budget James Gunn directed standalone sequel to 2016’s Suicide Squad came in way below trade expectations which had the film coming in at over $30m. The film still registered the seventh largest opening weekend since the pandemic and the largest opening weekend for an R-rated film since the pandemic as well.
The film faired better internationally this weekend with an estimated $35 million from 69 markets. That brings the film’s international bringing to $45.7 million and current global total to $72.2 million.
2. JUNGLE CRUISE
Jungle Cruise was knocked down a place to settle for 2nd, as it made just under $15.7 million. Disney’s adventure film starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt fell just -55.2% from the previous time frame which is very decent considering the drop of previous blockbusters of the pandemic.
Internationally, the film took in an estimated $15.1 million from 49 markets this weekend. The current hauls for Jungle Cruise stand at $56.5 million internationally and $121.8 million globally.
Universal’s Old stabilized well this weekend by dropping a solid 40% to place in third with an estimated $4.1 million.
Internationally, the film made $4.4 million this weekend from 46 markets. That brings the film’s international total to $26.7 million and current global take to $65.2 million.
4. BLACK WIDOW
In fourth was Disney and Marvel’s Black Widow, which tacked on $4 million in its fifth weekend. The film’s 31-day total stands at an estimated $174.3 million.
