After dethroning Jungle Cruise two weeks ago, and keeping four wide releases at bay last week, Free Guy once again leads this week’s theater counts. The film has earned just over $64 million domestically and an estimated $117 million worldwide in its first 13 days in release. The theater count does drop from 4,165 last week to 3,940 this week, but is still good enough to fend off Candyman—the latest feature from Universal Pictures—which debuts in 3,569 locations. Candyman is a sequel to the original 1992 horror film of the same name and stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. Still near the top of our list is the previously-mentioned Jungle Cruise, which has amassed just north of $94 million in North America, and $175 million worldwide. The adventure film plays in 3,370 locations this week. Of the four wide releases to debut last week, the best earner at the box office was the animated kids feature, PAW Patrol: The Movie. The film scored $13.1 million in its first three days from 3,184 locations and expands to 3,189 this week.
New in limited release this week is Together, the latest movie from Bleecker Street. The comedy film, starring James McAvoy and Sharon Horgan, about partners who are forced to re-evaluate themselves and their relationship through the reality of lockdown, releases in 251 theaters across North America. Also new this week from Lionsgate and Pantelion Films is the Mexican children’s movie, A Rescue of Little Eggs, showing in 320 locations.
Looking ahead to next week, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings hits theaters. The latest MCU film, estimated to arrive in 4,200 theaters, stars Simu Liu as the title character, Shang-Chi and is helmed by Destin Daniel Cretton. Unlike its predecessor, Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will have a 45-day exclusive theatrical release before being available on Disney+…
