Without a major release, the Top Five remained primarily unchanged at the domestic box office this week. Animated-comedies still dominate the chart, with Disney, Warner Bros., and Universal all hoping to squeeze every dollar out of the parents looking to keep their children occupied during the health crisis.
There was a slight change at the worldwide box office after “Avatar” re-released in China. The film picked up an additional $8M this week, reclaiming the highest-grossing film title (not adjusted for inflation) at the global box office. The film’s cumulative $2.8B gross topped “Avengers: Endgame,” which remains at $2.797B.
Disney’s “Raya and the Last Dragon” remained at the top of the box office this weekend, bringing in another $5.5M across 2,163 locations. Now in its second week, the animated-comedy has made $15.8M domestically and $52.6M worldwide. Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada directed “Raya and the Last Dragon,” featuring the voice talents of Kelly Marie Tran, Awkwafina, Gemma Chan, Daniel Dae Kim, Benedict Wong, Sandra Oh, Lucille Soong, and Alan Tudyk.
“Tom and Jerry,” an animated reboot from Warner Bros. Pictures, landed in second-place overall with a $4M domestic weekend at 2,454 locations. The animated-comedy hit theaters three weeks ago and has made $28M domestically and $66.9M worldwide.
