“Black Panther 2” continues to dominate the box office during the Thanksgiving holiday season, which takes place this Thursday (24th). The Marvel film faces weak competition and added $10 million at the box office on Wednesday alone.

With this amount, the Marvel and Disney film is on track to raise more than $63 million in a five-day period, easily outperforming its competitors. As for animation, Disney must not be so happy with the performance of ‘Weird World’, a film that picked up a disappointing $4.2 million on Wednesday, and must rack up less than $24 million over the five-year period. days. .

For comparison, ‘Enchantment’, another recent Disney release, made $40.3 million over Thanksgiving weekend in 2021, an accomplishment that was even considered weak for a family film. It was only after arriving on Disney+ that ‘Encanto’ gained prominence, with the song ‘Não Falamos do Bruno’ going viral.

Among other films in theaters, Sony and Black Label Media’s war film “Devotion” made $1.8 million yesterday and is expected to top $10.2 million over the entire five-day period. “Até ossos,” a film starring Timothée Chalamet, raised just $900,000 on Wednesday and the forecast is $4.3 million as of Sunday.

Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” grossed $400,000 on Wednesday after expanding from four theaters to more than 600 locations. The semi-autobiographical take on the director’s early years is expected to bring in $3 million over the entire Thanksgiving holiday.

Searchlight’s “The Menu” made $1.1 million and is expected to make $8 million this holiday season. The horror comedy’s domestic total is $12.4 million. Warner Bros. and DC’s “Black Adam” earned $660,000 Wednesday and is eyeing $4 million this holiday season. The superhero film’s total at the North American box office is just under $160 million.

Despite the performance of ‘Black Panther 2’, the scenario for the film industry is quite scary. The holiday box office is expected to be down about 10% from last Thanksgiving, when ticket sales topped $142 million. And these figures were already a far cry from the pre-pandemic Thanksgiving results. In 2019, for example, the period generated $263.3 million in ticket sales.

The exhibition business had some reason to celebrate after news broke that Amazon plans to spend $1 billion on making 12 to 15 films that will be released theatrically. The internet giant has alternated between embracing theaters and focusing on boosting its streaming service.
