A lack of new wide openers meant little change in the top films at the domestic box office this weekend, with Godzilla vs. Kong once again taking the crown ahead of the release of Warner Bros.’ highly-anticipated Mortal Kombat reboot next Friday.
Threepeating in first place, Godzilla vs. Kong held slightly better than last weekend with an estimated $7.71 million, marking a 44% drop in its third frame. The monster mash-up’s top markets this weekend were, in order, Los Angeles, New York, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, Chicago, San Francisco, Denver, Salt Lake City and Atlanta. Its domestic haul is a robust $80.52 million to date.
Nobody sat tight in the runner-up position with an estimated $2.5 million in its fourth weekend of release, bringing the Universal action title to $19.05 million.
Sony/Screen Gems’ horror film The Unholy dropped just 14% to an estimated $2.06 million, good enough for a third-place finish. The domestic cume for the PG-13 title stands at $9.56 million through its third weekend.
