Deadline reports that with another slow weekend at the box office, Sony’s new action flick Bullet Train raced to the top with a $30.1 million opening. The film, from director David Leitch, has quite the cast including Brad Pitt, Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji, Michael Shannon, Sandra Bullock, Hiroyki Sanada, Bad Bunny, Karen Fukuhara, Masi Oka, Logan Lerman, and Zazi Beetz and industry experts think the film will likely reach $100 million while in the theaters.
DC League of Super-Pets hung on to the family audiences, bringing in $11.2 million it’s second weekend while Nope grabbed the horror audiences with $8.05 million in it’s third week. Thor: Love and Thunder grabbed the fourth spot with $7.6 million taking it close to, but still not surpassing $700 million worldwide as it is likely nearing the end of its theater run and heading to Disney+ in the next few weeks.
Minions: Rise of Gru slipped into the fifth spot with $7.11 million in its sixth and likely final weekend taking it to $334.5 million, very close to the original Minions $336 million total. Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick took sixth place, earning another $7.03 million in its 11th weekend of release to reach a $662 million domestic total and soars to over $1.35 billion worldwide.
