Weekend Box-Office: GRAN TURISMO Wins the Race With $17.3M Debut

Weekend Box Office Gran Turismo

National Cinema Day, a celebration of moviegoing during which all tickets at participating locations are $4 (including IMAX and 3D), helped boost this weekend's box-office results. This Sunday was the highest-grossing day with $34.3 million, ahead of Saturday's $28.6 million and Friday's $27.5 million. "Gran Turismo" topped the charts, but is still in a close race against "Barbie" for the top spot.

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

The based-on-a-video-game racing drama "Gran Turismo" opened with $17.3 million from 3,856 theaters. It also raked in $35.5 million overseas, which adds up to $53.8 million worldwide. The film cost only a modest $60 million to produce, so it might manage to turn a profit if it holds well in the following weeks. The film received mixed reviews from critics (60% on Rotten Tomatoes), but a more positive reception from moviegoers ("A" CinemaScore).

"Barbie" is holding in second place in its sixth frame. The film only dropped 19% and grossed $17.1 million. The race for the top spot is very close, and when the actuals arrive, it might actually be "Barbie" in first place. The film has now grossed a total of $594.8 million domestically, $745.5 million overseas, and a grand total of $1.3 billion worldwide.

Last week's #1 movie, "Blue Beetle" finished its sophomore frame in third place with $12.7 million, dropping 49% from its opening weekend. The film's domestic total has reached $46.3 million, while overseas it raked in $35.5 million. That all adds up to a disappointing $81.8 million worldwide after 10 days, and is on track to become the lowest-grossing DC Extended Universe film, a record currently held by "Shazam: Fury of the Gods" ($132.1 million).

"Oppenheimer" finished its sixth frame in fourth place. The film dropped only 16% and grossed $9 million over the weekend. The film has now grossed $300 million in North America after 38 days in theaters. Overseas it raked in a total of $477.1 million overseas, and $777.1 million worldwide.

The Top 5 is rounded out by "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem" with 6.1 million, a 28.6% decline. The film's domestic total has reached $98.1 million after 26 days in heaters. Overseas it has grossed $37 million. The worldwide cume is now at $135.1 million.
