Warner Bros. Animation’s DC League of Super-Pets performed as expected, generating an estimated $23 million in revenue across more than 4,300 North American screens to top the weekend box office through July 31.
The movie, featuring a voice cast led by Dwayne Johnson, held off last weekend’s theatrical champion, Nope, which generated about $18.8 million, bringing director Jordan Peele’s sci-fi drama $80 million in revenue after two weekends.
With a solid ‘A-‘ CinemaScore rating and scant new competition in the coming weeks, Super-Pets could indeed meet its steep $90 million production budget.
Rounding out the podium was Disney/Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder, which realized more than $13 million in ticket sales to bring its domestic four-week total past $301 million, $624 million worldwide.
Universal/Illumination’s Minions: The Rise of Gru finished No. 4, adding a projected $10.8 million in ticket sales to bring its domestic total past $320 million ($710 million globally) after five weekends.
