Weekend Box-Office: BOB MARLEY Biopic Dominates Sophomore Frame While DEMON SLAYER Slays ORDINARY ANGELS and DRIVE AWAY DOLLS

Weekend Box Office Bob Marley Demon Slayer Ordinary Angels Drive Away Dolls

Paramount's musical biopic "Bob Marley: One Love" continues to dominate despite three new releases. The fantasy anime "Demon Slayer: To the Hashira Training" scored a solid debut, but Ethan Coen's "Drive Away Dolls" tanked, and the Lionsgate faith-based drama "Ordinary Angels" received a lukewarm reception.

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

"Bob Marley: One Love" still leads with $13.5 million in its second weekend (down 53% from its debut), which brings the domestic box-office to $71.1 million, while overseas it raked in $49.4 million. The film has crossed the $100 million mark worldwide ($120.6 million).

"Demon Slayer: To the Hashira Training" opened in second place with $11.5 million from 1,949 theaters. The film received positive reviews from critics (78% on Rotten Tomatoes), and a decent reception from audiences ("B+" CinemaScore).

"Ordinary Angels" scored a #3 debut with a modest $6.5 million from 3,020 theaters. However, the film only cost around $13 million to produce. The film received a very positive reception from both critics (80% on Rotten Tomatoes) and movigoers ("A+" CinemaScore).

Sony's failed superhero flick "Madame Web" dropped to fourth place, grossing $6 million while falling 61% from its opening weekend. Surprisingly that's not a massive drop, but neither was its opening weekend. The film has grossed $35.4 million domestically and $42 million overseas against a budget of $80 million.

The Top 5 is rounded out by "Migration" with $3 million, down only 21.5%.

The female-centric road movie crime comedy "Drive Away Dolls" was off to a slow start with just $2.4 million from 2,280 theaters. The film finished in eighth place. Both moviegoers and audiences seemed to dislike the movie (65% on Rotten Tomatoes and "C" CinemaScore).
