#BOXOFFICE: “JUNGLE CRUISE” SETS SAIL IN DEBUT
DISNEY’S JUNGLE CRUISE sets sail atop the Box Office debuting at #1 for Disney with $34.2 million from 4,310 theatres across North America. Starring Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson, the Adventure-Fantasy with nods to Indiana Jones and The African Queen, garners a passing 63% on the Tomatometer. It was made for a budget of $200 million, recouping some of its investment lost through a simultaneous debut also on Disney+ as a Premier Access title for those watching at home.
THE GREEN KNIGHT debuts in second spot for A24/Elevation Pictures with $6.8 million from 2,790 theatres. The Medieval Fantasy starring Dev Patel gets 90% on the Tomatometer.
Just getting edged-out for second is last week’s #1 film, OLD, earning $6.7 million for Universal Pictures, a total $30.6 million gross over two weeks.
Marvel’s BLACK WIDOW lands in fourth with $6.4 million for Disney, bringing its run to $167 million domestically.
STILLWATER starring Matt Damon and Abigail Breslin, debuts in fifth for Focus Features/Universal Pictures with $5.1 million from 2,531 theatres. Loosely based on the Amanda Knox story, the Film gets 76% on the Tomatometer after some positive buzz coming out of Cannes.
