The weekend box office was dominated by Kung Fu Panda 4 skadooshes Dune

None

POSITIVE
As predicted earlier in the weekend, Kung Fu Panda 4 has maintained its lead against Dune: Part Two for a second week in a row, but only by the tiniest margin—as in, less than $1 million.
Panda 4 made $30 million, bringing it to a solid $107 million after just two weeks, while the Dune sequel made $29.1 million, bringing it to $205 million after three weeks.
Movies are back!

In sixth place, after a thrilling surge of popularity, is Love Lies Bleeding.
It jumped from 21st place to sixth and increased its gross by 1,548 percent!
It only made $2.4 million, because it only played on a couple of screens last week and is now playing at over 1,000, but hey: We’re talkin’ about it, aren’t we?
AdvertisementOutside of the top five, Bob Marley: One Love is somehow still hanging on, newcomers One Life and The American Society Of Magical Negroes failed to do much business (though they’re both on limited screens), and Ordinary Angels has stuck around for a fourth week.
Elsewhere on the box office charts, Oppenheimer started playing in a handful of new theaters again after winning Best Picture at the Academy Awards last week, but it barely made any additional money.
Maybe it’s just not the right weekend for Cillian Murphy to be playing an American?
It feels heretical.
Here’s the top 10 again from Box Office Mojo in list format.
Kung Fu Panda 4 Dune: Part Two Arthur The King Imaginary Cabrini Love Lies Bleeding Bob Marley: One Love One Life

Kung Fu Panda 4 has remained ahead of Dune: Part Two for a second week running, as was predicted earlier in the weekend, but only by the smallest amount—less than $1 million. The Dune sequel brought in $29,1 million, or $205 million, after three weeks, while Panda 4 made $30 million, or a healthy $107 million after just two weeks. Movies are once again available!

English: Watch the video as Christopher Walken appears in Dune: Part Two.

The Mark Wahlberg dog film Arthur The King (which opens at $7.55 million), the horror film Imaginary (which grosses a total of $19 million after two weeks), and the Churchy-leaning biopic Cabrini ($13 million after two weeks) complete the top five, placing them well behind the top two. After an exciting spike in popularity, Love Lies Bleeding is in sixth place. Though it only made $2 point 4 million because it only played on a few screens last week and is now playing at over 1,000, it jumped from 21st place to sixth and increased its gross by 1,548 percent. Still, it’s worth bringing up.

Promotion.

Beyond the top five, Bob Marley: One Love manages to hold onto its position, while new entries One Life and The American Society of Magical Negroes, despite being screened on a limited basis, did not perform well at all. Additionally, Ordinary Angels has remained in the top five for a fourth week. After taking home the Best Picture Oscar last week, Oppenheimer opened in a few new theaters, but it barely brought in any more money. These developments were reflected elsewhere on the box office charts. Could it be that Cillian Murphy’s portrayal of an American is inappropriate for this particular weekend? It seems a bit radical.

Here is another list of the top 10 from Box Office Mojo.
