‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ Tops the Box Office as ‘Chaos Walking’ Struggles

Movie theaters in New York City opened for the first time since March 2020 this weekend, giving New Yorkers a chance to see a few of the films that were only available outside the state during the ongoing health crisis. This weekend’s box office totals prove that many would-be moviegoers are waiting to be vaccinated before hitting the theater and that a full recovery is a long way off.

Disney’s “Raya and the Last Dragon” topped the domestic chart with an $8.6M opening across 2,045 locations. The studio released the film on Disney+ as a premium release to offset the cost of delaying the film, but the platform did not confirm any totals. Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada directed the animated-comedy, featuring the voice talents of Kelly Marie Tran, Awkwafina, Gemma Chan, Daniel Dae Kim, Benedict Wong, Sandra Oh, Lucille Soong, and Alan Tudyk.
