For a film with a $110 million production budget, a $13 million start for Snake Eyes will almost certainly put the toys back on the shelf, with little hope for a future G.I. Joe film or sequel.
Space Jam: A New Legacy went hard to the hoop for the weekend box office win, unseating last week’s champion, Marvel’s Black Widow.
Black Widow is currently estimated to take home $87.8 million at the weekend box office, racing past the previous pandemic-era record of $70 million set by Universal Studios F9 last month.
The third Conjuring film took in $24 million domestically and added an additional $33.1 million overseas in its opening weekend, in spite of the fact that the film was available to view at home on HBO Max.
Mortal Kombat edged out Demon Slayer in the late rounds of the weekend box office championship to earn the victory in the biggest cumulative theatrical take since the coronavirus pandemic began.
The debate rages on as to who would win the rubber match between King Kong and Godzilla, but no one can dispute that Godzilla vs. Kong is now the reigning COVID-19 box office champ.
