Weekend Box-Office: ETERNALS Holds No.1 Spot With $27.5 Million

Weekend Box-Office: ETERNALS Holds No.1 Spot With $27.5 Million

The Marvel movie "Eternals" held the #1 spot in its second weekend at the box-office. The weekend's only wide release was Paramount's "Clifford The Big Red Dog" which performed slightly better than expected. Also, Kenneth Branagh's coming-of-age dramedy "Belfast" opened in select theaters and made it into the Top 10.

Read more about the weekend box-office after the jump.

"Eternals" still dominates the box-office in its second weekend with $27.5 million. That's the good news. The bad is that the film dropped 61.4% from its opening weekend, which ranks among the largest second-weekend declines for a Marvel movie. "Ant-Man and the Wasp" and "Spider-Man: Homecoming" both dropped 62%, while "Black Widow" dropped 67.8% in its second weekend. So far, "Eternals" has grossed $118.8 million domestically, while overseas the film added $48 million this weekend for an international total of $162.6 million.

In second place we find Paramount's "Clifford the Big Red Dog", which opened in theaters on Wednesday and has grossed $22 million in five days, and $16.3 million over the weekend from 3,700 theaters. Initial projections pointed towards a $15-17 million five-day debut. The film was released simultaneously on Paramount+, but is on an exclusive theatrical window in Canada. Its production budget was reportedly around $64 million. "Clifford the Big Red Dog" did not fare well with critics (48% on Rotten Tomatoes), but audiences enjoyed it, as indicated by an "A" Cinemascore.

"Dune" finished in third place with $5.5 million in its fourth weekend in theaters. The film dropped just 29%. Its domestic tally has reached $93.1 million, so far, and overseas it has raked in a total of $258.1 million.

James Bond flick "No Time to Die" landed at #4 with $4.62 million. The film only dropped 24% in its sixth weekend of release, which is pretty damn good, and it has now grossed $150.4 million in North America (sixth-highest grossing Bond film of all time), and another $558.1 million overseas.

The Top 5 is rounded out by "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" with $4 million. The film is doing incredibly well at the box-office, dropping just 10.4% in its seventh weekend. The sequel has grossed a total of $202.7 million domestically, becoming only the second film to cross that threshold in 2021 after "Shang-Chi", and $238.8 million internationally.

Focus Features' "Belfast" opened in eighth place with $1.8 million from 580 theaters. The film was well-received by both critics (88% on Rotten Tomatoes) and audiences ("A-" Cinemascore).
