Warner Bros.’ DC League of Super-Pets topped the domestic box office with a $23 million opening weekend from 4,314 locations. A total of 64 overseas markets contributed $18.4 million to the film’s $41.4 million global debut. Top overseas openers include the United Kingdom ($3.1M), Mexico ($2.1M), France ($1.6M), and Brazil ($1.1.M).
The first place domestic finish came in behind projections for the title, which counted on major stars like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart among its voice cast. Super-Pets opened below the $23.9 million debut from Universal’s The Bad Guys, a film that has grossed a total of $97 million since opening in April.
Super-Pets will have to resort to its strong word-of-mouth to hit the $100 million in its domestic run. An A- CinemaScore should help those efforts, especially among female audiences and moviegoers under the age of 35, demographics that gave the film an A CinemaScore. The General Audience PostTrak score was a more measured 3.5/5 stars, with a 4-star rating from parents and 4.5 stars from kids. Premium Large Format showtimes contributed 14% of the film’s domestic opening weekend box office. Geographically, Super-Pets over-indexed in the South and the Midwestern United States.

Nope is one of five Universal titles to rank in the domestic top ten this week. Minions: The Rise of Gru finished fourth in its fifth weekend with $10.8 million from 3,579 theaters. The Minions sequel has now grossed $320.4 million domestically and $389.9 million overseas for a $710.3 million global haul.

Dominion has grossed a total of $369.4 million in North America, out of reach to match Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’s $417.7 million domestic run.
