Weekend Box Office Dragon Ball Super Super Hero

Sony/Crunchyroll's anime film "Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero" dominated the weekend box-office, while Universal's survival thriller "Beast" starring Idris Elba scored a modest second place debut.

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

The Japanese animated film "Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero" opened in first place with $20.1 million from 3,018 theaters, which ended up being slightly better than pre-release projections. It's pretty much on par with 2019's "Dragon Ball Super: Broly" ($20.2 million). The film was also released in 31 overseas markets, adding another $12 million, for a $32 million worldwide debut. The film received rave reviews from critics (92% on Rotten Tomatoes).

The Idris Elba starrer "Beast" only managed a second place debut with $11.5 million from 3,743 locations, performing as expected. The film opened internationally last week, and has so far raked in $10.2 million overseas. However, the film only cost $36 million to produce, so it's not a bad outcome. "Beast" received mixed reviews from critics (69% on Rotten Tomatoes) and a lukewarm reception from moviegoers ("B" CinemaScore).

The action comedy "Bullet Train" dropped from No. 1 to third place this week, grossing $8 million over the weekend (-40% drop). The film's domestic total has reached $68.9 million after 17 days, while overseas it added another $81 million, for a global total of $150 million.

"Top Gun: Maverick" finished in fourth place with $5.8 million, dropping just 17% in its thirteenth weekend. The film has grossed a total of $683 million domestically, surpassing Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War" ($678 million), and becoming the sixth highest grossing domestic release in history. It's also only $17 million away from cathing up to "Black Panther" ($700 million). The international tally now stands at $720 million, and the global total has crossed the $1.4 billion mark.

The Top 5 is rounded out by the animated film "DC League of Super-Pets" with $5.7 million, down 18% from last weekend. The film has grossed a total of $67.4 million in North America after 24 days in theaters, and another $62.9 million overseas, adding up to $130.4 million worldwide.

In other news, Paramount's "Orphan: First Kill" opened outside the Top 10, at No. 12, with $1.6 million from 498 theaters. The film received a day-and-date release, simultaneously in cinemas and on Paramount+.
