Box-Office: UNCHARTED Tops Presidents' Day Weekend With $44 Million

Box-Office: UNCHARTED Tops Presidents' Day Weekend With $45 Million

This week's new releases helped the box-office recover after the lackluster Super Bowl weekend results. This year's President's Day weekend saw the release of the highly anticipated video game adaptation "Uncharted" starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg, Channing Tatum's directorial debut "Dog" and LD Entertainment's horror film "The Cursed".

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

"Uncharted" dominated the box-office over the weekend with a $44.1 million debut from 4,275 theaters, and the film is expected to rake in around $51 million for the extended weekend. This is the fourth highest opening weekend ever for a video game movie, behind "Sonic the Hedgehog" ($58 million), "Pokemon Detective Pikachu" ($54.3 million) and "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" ($47.7 million). Overseas it grossed $55.4 million from 62 markets. "Uncharted" received a negative reception from critics (40% Rotten Tomatoes), but moviegoers mostly enjoyed it ("B+" CinemaScore).

Channing Tatum's "Dog" opened in second place with $15.1 million from 3,677 theaters over the weekend, and $18 million for the 4-day. The film only cost $15 million to produce. The critics were mostly positive on the film (76% Rotten Tomatoes) and audiences responded well to it ("A-" CinemaScore).

"Spider-Man: No Way Home" climbed one spot to third place and actually scored a 1.7% increase from last weekend. The Sony/Marvel flick grossed $7.2 million over the three-day and is estimated to rake in $8.8 million over the four-day. The film has grossed a total of $771.7 million domestically and another $1 billion overseas, which all add up to a $1.8 billion worldwide total.

Last week's No. 1 movie, "Death on the Nile", dropped to fourth place with $6.3 million over the three-day frame and $7.2 million over the four-day, which brings its domestic total to $25.9 million after 11 days in theaters. The film dropped 51% compared to its opening weekend. Overseas, the film added another $19.8 million for an international total of $49.9 million. With only $74.9 million worldwide, so far, the film will probably lose money considering its $90 million budget and who knows how much in marketing costs due to pandemic delays.

The Top 5 is rounded out by Paramount's "Jackass Forever" with $5.2 million for the three-day and $6.2 million for the four-day. Its domestic tally is now at $47.7 million, while overseas its cume has reached $13.3 million. Although it's not the highest grossing performance in the "Jackass" franchise, it's still a big win for Paramount, since it only cost $10 million to make.

The horror film "The Cursed", which premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, barely made it into the top 10. The film opened with $1.7 million from 1,687 theaters over the three-day weekend, and $1.9 million over the extended weekend.
