The Brad Pitt action vehicle Bullet Train enjoyed a softer-than-expected drop of just 55% in its second weekend and earned another $13.4 million at the domestic box office. The film has taken in $54.4 million so far stateside. Internationally, the David Leitch-helmed feature has accrued $60 million, bringing its worldwide cume to $114.5 million, per Deadline. That’s nothing to write home about (but still a decent-sized success for the $90 million production). In fact, the $13.4 million weekend total marks the lowest-grossing weekend this summer, the last being the $16 million opening of Downton Abbey: A New Era in May. Summer’s officially over, folks.
Elsewhere, A24’s Pete Davidson title Bodies Bodies Bodies took in $3.25 million in its debut week from 1,285 theaters, while the Hindi remake of of Forrest Gump, titled Lala Singh Chaddha, earned $1.78 million from 516 theaters in 154 markets over its first five days. The Diane Keaton-led comedy, Mack & Rita, earned $1.095 million from 1,930 theaters, and a D+ CinemaScore for its efforts, while Universal’s Imax release of Steven Spielberg’s classic E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial took in $1.07 million.
Internationally, Jordan Peele’s Nope opened in 19 territories and hauled in $6.4 million. Idris Elba’s Beast, meanwhile, earned $4.6 million from 30 markets.
Minions: The Rise of Gru, on the other hand, continues to do big business. The animated adventure earned $10.7 million from 80 territories and has reached a staggering $447 million internationally and $790 million worldwide. Likewise, Top Gun: Maverick generated another $8.4 million abroad/$7.15 million stateside (following a re-release for fan appreciation) to bring its massive total to $1.377 billion.
