I don’t use the term “climinating” very loosely because I am not an expert in comic book movies. The original film, which opened on July 17, 2015, took in $57.2 million and went on to earn $180.2 million domestically. AntMan to fight in the Avengers Secret Wars 10 and then AntMan to take in $75.8 million on July 6, 2018, to reach a domestic total of $216.6 million.

Third is Channing Tatum’s rock-hard abs as Magic Mike’s Last Dance added $5.5 million to its boxoffice cume, currently at $18.1million. This release, despite not earning any box office dollars, serves as a great promotion for the streaming release. It would have been forgotten if it was just left there at the beginning.
Puss In Boots: The Last Wish in fourth place with an additional $5.2million, a drop of just 6% over the previous weekends take. It has amassed $166 million in the nine weeks it has been in theaters. The film will hit Blu Ray on February 28, so we will see if the numbers drop. M. Night Shyamalan’s Knock in the Cabin is the fifth most popular domestic film. It has grossed $3.9 million, bringing it to just over $30,000,000. This is far from the huge box office Night’s films would have received twenty years ago. However, when you consider that Night has been self-financing his films since The Visitors (even remortgaging his house to make
Knock in the Cabin 10), and that the 25th Anniversary Release of 1010adds $2.2 million to its domestic total. Although the reviews for this film have been mixed (currently at 24% on Rotten Tomatoes), Chris Bumbray enjoyed it enough to write an 8/10 review. I saw this one a few days ago, and it was a decent enough mystery but I can’t lie, there were a few times I found my mind wandering due to what was going on on the screen not holding my attention.Rounding out the top ten are your holdovers Missing
with $1.7 million and the Tom Hanks starring A Man Called Otto with an additional $1.6 million added to its solid $60.6 million total. The long-awaited (?)
Winnie The Pooh – Blood and Honey was released with a $1.5 million opening. This film has received terrible reviews, including Tyler Nichols’s 2/10 rating. Most people who have heard this movie have called it the worst. I’m not sure if that is true, but I have read some reviews that said they enjoyed it as a throwback. The 2023 box office is close to $1 Billion, which is more than half the amount it was last year. Of course we can attribute that to behemoths like Avatar and now Ant-Man but also the more adult skewing films like 80 For Brady
and A Man Called Otto are showing that audiences of all types are finally making their way back to theaters. Did your family make it to the cinema last week? Let us know what you saw, and don’t forget our weekly poll: What is Your Favorite Paul Rudd Movie?
