This past weekend and after years of waiting, a new Ghostbusters film was released. While most critics didn’t like the fan-centric movie. Ghostbusters: Afterlife had no issues taking the top spot at the box office. Also, did you miss the new trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home?
In its first weekend Ghostbusters: Afterlife was able to gross $44 million. That number should jump to over $65 million with the Thanksgiving holiday approaching. In fact fans can find the movie available to preorder on select digital stores. I bought the digital version this week off the Xbox Live store. No date on when this movie will be coming home. Internationally, this film is sitting at $16 million, bringing the total to $83 million worldwide.
Eternals continues to print money for Marvel. The critically-panned film is sitting at a $337 million worldwide, domething this movie shouldn’t have been able to do with all the negative critical reviews. Another Marvel movie that did have a digital release this week is still doing well. Venom: Let There Be Carnage grossed $2.9 million as it now sits at $455 million worldwide. It doesn’t look like this movie will be crossing the $500 million mark in theaters. Dune is so close to crossing that $100 million domestic mark. If the film wasn’t released on HBO Max, it may have happened. Yet, I don’t think more people would have had the chance to watch this amazing film. It now sits at $365 million worldwide.
3. Clifford the Big Red Dog $8 million
2. Eternals $11 million
1. Ghostbusters: Afterlife $44 million
Three movies will be released this weekend. All three of them have the power to take the top spot from Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Encanto, House of Gucci, and Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City are all coming to a theater near you. Hopefully you can find some time to go out to the theater this weekend and enjoy one of these movies before they leave the theater.
