Disney and Marvel’s “Eternals” took a steep drop in its 2nd weekend in theaters, but it is even now hanging on to 1st location ahead of newcomers like “Clifford the Huge Pink Dog.”

“Eternals” extra $27.5 million over the weekend, bringing its domestic overall to $118.8 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The movie, directed by Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao and starring Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani and Gemma Chan, fell 61% from its debut. Though not uncommon for a huge superhero tentpole, it was drastically steeper than the 52% fall found by the last Disney and Marvel featuring, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.”

Both equally performed solely in theaters, but the primary big difference is that “Shang-Chi” simply got much better rankings from audiences and critics. “Shang-Chi” also turned readily available to stream on Disney+ this weekend. “Eternals” has produced $281.4 million globally to date.

Second put went to “Clifford the Major Crimson Doggy,” which opened in theaters during the 7 days and was also out there to stream at house for Paramount+ subscribers. It created an approximated $16.4 million from 3,700 theaters over the weekend and $22 million across its five times in launch.

Nevertheless critics were not amazed (it has a 48% on Rotten Tomatoes), audiences ended up far more favorable, supplying it a promising A CinemaScore. And “Clifford” managed to do this in the deal with of unsure moviegoing problems for people.

Blockbusters rounded out the top 5 with “Dune” in 3rd spot with $5.5 million, “No Time to Die” in fourth with $4.6 million and “Venom: Enable There Be Carnage” in fifth with $4 million. Notably, “Venom 2” this weekend turned only the second pandemic-era film to cross the $200 million mark at the domestic box office environment. The other was “Shang-Chi.”

More and more awards hopefuls are entering the specialty box business as nicely, and lots of are producing their way into the leading 10. This weekend Kenneth Branagh’s semi-autobiographical film “Belfast” manufactured $1.8 million from 580 screens in its debut. In its second weekend, “Spencer,” featuring Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana, pulled in $1.5 million from 1,265 screens. And even in its fourth weekend, Wes Anderson’s “The French Dispatch” continues to do properly, incorporating $1.8 million and bringing its overall to $11.6 million.
