Last week’s chart-topper The Marvels (Disney) dropped to No. 3, while Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Trolls Band Together finished at No. 4, and the studio’s Oscar-nominated Oppenheimer finished at No. 5.

Moving up two spots was Universal’s adaptation of video game Five Nights at Freddy’s at No. 6. Warner’s Oscar-nominated Barbie landed at No. 7, closely followed by Lionsgate U.K.’s “Hunger Games” prequel The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes at No. 8 — down two spots from the previous week.
