5 films dominate the US box office .. “Don’t Worry Darling” first

“Don’t Worry Darling,” directed and actress Olivia Wilde, topped the North American box office.

The film’s revenues at the end of last week amounted to 19.2 million dollars, according to the specialized “Exciter Relations” website.

It was not clear whether negative media reports of off-screen disagreements, including between filmmaker and actress Florence Pugh, stimulated or dampened box office sales.

In any case, the Warner Bros movie did a “very well above average” start to such romances, according to Franchise Entertainment Research analyst David A. Gross.

Last week’s topper, Sony’s “The Woman King,” slipped to second place with $11.1 million in revenue, with a 42 percent drop. Oscar-winner Viola Davis stars in the historical story about an army of African female warriors.

In third place, came the remake of the famous movie “Avatar” directed by James Cameron.

The work, produced by Twentieth Century Fox, has grossed nearly $10 million, mostly from shows on Emax’s big screens, from Friday to Sunday.

Gross said the release was “acceptable,” but recalled that the film had a slow start in 2009 before setting an all-time record with $2.8 billion in global ticket sales.

The company hopes that the new release will attract enough interest to offset the huge budget of $ 250 million for the upcoming sequel, “Avatar: The Way of Water,” due out in December.

In fourth place was another film produced by “Twentieth Century Fox” titled “Barbarian”, which earned $4.8 million. This horror movie stars Georgina Campbell and Bill Skarsgård.

In fifth place was the violent film “Pearl” starring Mia Gott, with revenues of $ 1.9 million.
