With so much of big blockbuster-type films frontloaded these days and with a lot of people still not going back to theaters (myself still included), the 68% drop in the second weekend for Thor: Love and Thunder isn’t too much of a surprise. The film took nearly 40% of the market share for the weekend with a $46 million take to bring it to $233.2 million domestic. The film is, however, on the global scale about to cross the $500 million mark as it’s just a hair under it so it’s not doing too badly – even if this is one of the worst second-weekend drops for the MCU.
Once past that, the next highest was the latest Minions film coming in at $26 million to bring it up to $262 million. Top Gun: Maverick continues to do very well and Elvis crosses the $100 million mark this weekend.
On the new side, Where the Crawdads Sing takes the third-place slot with $17 million, which is almost double projections.
