In a pretty clear indication that there is both not much interesting new stuff to see at the theaters and that the only thing that is guaranteed to make at least some money in this post, lockdowns era is a superhero movie, the Jared Leto-starring in Marvel’s Morbius film is sitting in the number one spot at the American box office. Despite the reviews and the fact that “nobody cares about Morbius” seems to have become a meme, the vaguely Spider-Man-adjacent film made $39,000,000 at the box office, well ahead of second place’s The Lost City.
The rest of the list is almost entirely boring, with RRR’s drop from third to sixth being the only real change from last week’s order. The Batman is still hanging on, making just over $10 million for nearly $350 million after five weeks, but there’s a considerable gap to Uncharted in fourth place, which only made $3.6 million.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is still hanging on, making $1.9 million this week for a respectable three-week total of nearly $30,000,000. No Way Home is still making a good amount of money, even though nobody asked it to, and it just barely beat out Dog this week. Finally, in the “barely cracked $1,000,000” club, we have X and multiversal romp Everything Everywhere All At Once. The latter makes a ton of money relative to the number of theaters it is playing in 38. Its total was only $1.01 million, but that is more than a 100 percent increase from last week!
