Bombs from the ‘ISS’, the ‘bad girls’ reign again| Trending Viral hub

He “Bad GirlsThe musical film topped a sleepy box office as “ISS”, a science fiction thriller that takes place aboard the International Space Station and which flopped in its opening weekend.

“Mean Girls” grossed $11.7 million in its second weekend of release, raising its domestic gross to $50 million. Ticket sales fell a steep 59% since its debut. However, the film’s decline is cushioned by its modest budget of $36 million, making its box office performance outsized.

Overall, it’s been a dismal weekend for the movie theater business. To accentuate the stagnation at the box office, three films were released in the top five around Christmas.

“Without a big studio release, this weekend is the kind of ‘hole’ in the 2024 release calendar left by the strikes and the pandemic,” says David A. Gross, who runs the film consultancy Franchise Entertainment Research.

This weekend’s only newcomer, “ISS,” crashed into seventh place, grossing just $3 million in 2,520 theaters in its debut. Ariana DeBose and Chris Messina star in Bleecker Street’s film, which was plagued with negative reviews and a dismal “C-” CinemaScore from audience members.

“The Beekeeper,” an action thriller directed by David Ayer, remained in second place with $8.3 million in 3,330 theaters. So far, the film, starring Jason Statham as a former agent who takes revenge on behalf of a friend, has generated nearly $31 million in North America.

“Wonka,” a fantasy musical starring Timothée Chalamet as the titular chocolatier, again took third place with $6.7 million from 3,136 theaters. The film has held its own since the holidays and, after six weeks of release, has generated an impressive $187 million in North America and $513 million globally to date. Its production cost 100 million dollars, so it has been a pleasure for both Warner Bros. and cinema operators.

Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell’s R-rated romantic comedy “Anyone but You” came in at No. 4 with $5.4 million from 2,928 theaters. After five weekends on the big screen, the Sony film has grossed $64.2 million domestically and $100.2 million worldwide, making “Anyone but You” the comedy highest-grossing R-rated romance since 2016’s “Bridget Jones’s Baby.” With a production budget of $25 million, “Anyone but You” marks a victory for Sony and a reminder that rom-coms haven’t gone out of style in the box office, as long as budgets are kept under control.

Universal and Illumination’s animated adventure “Migration” dropped to fifth place with $5.3 million in 3,094 theaters. The $72 million-budgeted film, which also opened on Christmas, has grossed $94.6 million in North America and $191.6 million worldwide.
