Warner Bros. Pictures’ detective drama The Little Things bested the traditionally sluggish Super Bowl weekend box office with an estimated $2.1 million in ticket sales across more than 2,200 screens nationwide, and another $1.4 million across foreign markets Feb. 5-7.

The weekend’s Top 10 movies tallied about $7.7 million in ticket sales, down 32.7% from the previous $11.1 million weekend (Jan. 29-31).

Little Things, co-starring Oscar winners Denzel Washington, Jared Leto and Rami Malek, has been No. 1 at the pandemic-addled box office since launching concurrently on HBO Max Jan. 28, as part of Warner’s 2021 theatrical/SVOD release strategy. Little Things, which landed Leto a Golden Globes Best Supporting Actor Award nomination, has generated upwards of $7.8 million domestically; $13 million worldwide.
