Weekend Box-Office: BAD GUYS Leads Quiet Weekend With $16 Million

Weekend Box Office The Bad Guys Second Weekend

The animated film "The Bad Guys" secured the top spot in its sophomore weekend as no major new releases opened in theaters. Well, unless you consider Liam Neeson's new film "Memory" a major release, but that's debatable. Overall, it's been an uneventful weekend at the box-office, with most of the major players holding on to the same positions as last week.

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

"The Bad Guys" is doing much better than expected. The film still dominates the box-office, grossing $16.1 million over its second weekend (33% drop from its debut), which brings the North American cume to $44.4 million. With another $74.2 million earned overseas, the film's worldwide tally has now reached $118.7 million.

"Sonic the Hedgehog 2" is holding in second place with $11.3 million, dropping just 27.5%. The film's domestic total has reached $160.9 million after four weeks, surpassing the first film's $148 million tally and becoming the highest grossing video game movie in U.S. history. Overseas it has raked in $162.6 million. The film also crossed the $300 million milestone worldwide.

Warner Bros' fantasy sequel "Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore" once again finished in third place with $8.3 million (41% drop). The film's domestic tally has reached $79.5 million, which is massively lagging behind the previous two films ($183 million in 2016 and $134.5 million in 2018). The film has managed to add another $25.8 million overseas over the weekend for an international total of $250 million. Worldwide, "The Secrets of Dumbledore" has grossed $329 million.

The R-rated Viking epic "The Northman" continues to struggle in fourth place, grossing $6.3 million (49% drop) over the weekend. Its North American total is now at $22.8 million after 10 days. The 70-million-budgeted film also raked in $18.8 million overseas, which brings its global total to $41 million.

The Top 5 is rounded out by "Everything Everywhere All at Once" with $5.5 million, a 2.2% increase from last weekend. The film has so far grossed $35 million in North America.

And, finally, let's talk about this week's new wide release, the Liam Neeson starrer "Memory". The film opened in eighth place with a terrible $3.1 million from 2,555 theaters, which is similar to Neeson's recent releases "Blacklight" ($3.6 million), "Honest Thief" ($3.6 million) and "The Marksman" ($3.1 million).
