Although Northern America had a number of new releases last week, only the Lionsgate release of the thriller ‘Fall’ entered the top 10, and the Brad Pitt starrer ‘Bullet Train’ won back-to-back titles with $13.4 million.
The Northern America market grossed only $65.2 million last weekend, the lowest week since February of this year. The media is expected to estimate that until October 14, ‘Halloween Ends’ release, the market can re-fire up.
Bullet Train’ second week of $ 13.4 million fell 55% compared to last week, two weeks of cumulative box office 54.48 million and released in March this year, ‘The Lost City’ is still very close, the latter opened Northern America cumulative box office of $ 100 million.
Overseas markets, ‘Bullet Train’ fell a little better control, down 44% from last week, the current global cumulative box office of $ 114 million.
The third weekend of ‘DC League of Super-Pets’ got $7.1 million at the box office ranking runner-up, Northern America accumulated $58.34 million at the box office and $109 million worldwide, slightly ahead of the performance of ‘The Bad Guys’ in the same period.
Top Gun: Maverick’, which is in its 12th week of release, regained its theater count and was up 1.6% from last week to finish in third place with $7.15 million.
Currently the film’s Northern America cumulative box office of $673 million, $5 million short of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ will surpass the $678 million, will rank Northern America film history box office sixth.
‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ took in $5.31 million in its sixth week to rank fourth at the box office, and Northern America accumulated $325 million to rank 15th among MCU films.
With a cumulative worldwide box office of $720 million, the film has been unable to surpass ‘Thor: Ragnarok’s’ $854 million, as the latter had theatrical releases in Russia and mainland China.
The horror film ‘Nope’ took in $5.3 million in its fourth week, ranking fifth. With a cumulative box office of $108 million, it surpassed ‘The Lost City’ to become Northern America’s highest-grossing original film this year.

Lionsgate’s ‘Fall’ was the only new film to make the top 10 last week, opening in 1,548 theaters and earning $2.5 million. CinemaScore B+, 72% on Rotten Tomatoes, 6.5 on IMDb.
