On a weekend with no new wide releases in the marketplace and just 43% of theaters across the country remaining open, Open Road’s The Marksman kept its hold on the No. 1 spot at the box office with an estimated $2.03 million, a drop of 35% from its debut. The Liam Neeson thriller now has $6.09 million after ten days of release.
Easing just 9% from last weekend was The Croods: A New Age, which continues pulling in family audiences in its ninth weekend of release. The Universal sequel grossed an estimated $1.82 million, bringing its total to $41.83 million to date.
Wonder Woman 1984 finished in third place with an estimated $1.6 million, a drop of 38%. That brings the domestic total for the Warner Bros. sequel to $37.7 million through the end of its fifth weekend.
Coming in fourth place was Sony’s Monster Hunter, which grossed an estimated $820,000 for the weekend (a drop of just 11%) for a total of $10.2 million to date.
Rounding out the top five was Universal’s News of the World, which dipped 19% to an estimated $810,000 this weekend. The Oscar-tipped Tom Hanks Western — which could switch positions with Monster Hunter once actuals are tallied given the scant $10,000 difference between the two titles — has $9.65 million through the end of its fifth weekend.
Opening in 543 locations was Gravitas Ventures’ Our Friend, which debuted with an estimated $250,000. The dramedy starring Casey Affleck, Dakota Johnson and Jason Segel – which first premiered at the 2019 Toronto Film Festival – is also currently available in PVOD.
RLJE Films released the horror-comedy PG: Psycho Goreman on 45 screens and brought in an estimated $44,500 for the weekend.
Wonder Woman 1984 grossed an estimated $2.1 million overseas, bringing its international tally to $110.3 million and its worldwide total to $148 million.
The Croods: A New Age continued its slow creep to $100 million internationally with an estimated $1.62 million gross this weekend, bringing its overseas total to $97.96 million and its global cume to $139.8 million to date.
