20th Century Studios’ ‘Barbarian’ Tops Another Slow Weekend Box Office

Disney-owned 20th Century Studios’ theatrical horror release Barbarian exceeded expectations, generating a projected $10 million in ticket sales through Sept. 11 to top another sluggish weekend box office. The thriller, starring Georgina Campbell as a young woman who shares an Airbnb with a stranger in a dicey part of town, was expected to generate about $8 million in opening-weekend revenue.

With the weekend’s No. 2 ticket seller, Brahmastra: Part One — Shiva, generating $4.4 million across 810 screens, the North American box office continues to limp along without any major studio releases.

Sony Pictures’ Bullet Train rounded out the weekend podium with an estimated $3.2 million in ticket sales across more than 3,000 screens, pushing the Brad Pitt action-comedy’s North American tally past $92 million and $201 million globally.

Paramount Pictures’ unstoppable Top Gun: Maverick, which topped the weekend box office over Labor Day, generated more than $3 million for the weekend — after 16 weeks on the big screen.  The Tom Cruise action sequel remains near the top of the box office despite also being available in the home across digital retail channels. The movie has topped $705 million in North America and $1.45 billion globally.

Sony’s period horror thriller The Invitation realized an estimated $2.6 million in revenue across more than 3,100 screens, to push its three-week tally past $18 million domestically, and $22 million worldwide.
