Box Score: Barbie and Oppenheimer blow up the weekend box office

Instead of competing against each other, two new releases targeted different demographics combined to bring out moviegoers for the fourth biggest box office weekend ever. Barbie [BARBI] blew away expectation for an estimated $155.0 million. The opening is the biggest of the year beating The Super Mario Bros Movie’s $146.6 million and the highest ever directed by a woman. The audience skewed 68% females, who graded Barbie an A CinemaScore.

Oppenheimer [OPHMR] detonated an equally impressive $80.5 million to debut in second place. It’s the biggest non-Batman opening for director Christopher Nolan. The biopic also received an A CinemaScore from its 64% male audience.

Sound of Freedom [SOFRD] finished third at $20.14 million, advancing its total to $124.75 million after 3 weekends.

Last weekend’s top film, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning [MISS7] tumbled 64% in its second weekend to $19.5 million after losing all its IMAX screens. The sequel sits at $118.75 million.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny [INDI5] finished fifth at $6.7 million for a sum of $159.02 million after 4 weekends.

Insidious: The Red Door [NSID5] secured another $6.5 million, bringing its total to $71.0 million after 3 weekends.

Joy Ride [JOYRI] grossed $350K million in its third outing for a sum at $12.52 million.

Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken [GILLM] tallied $176K to bring its fourth weekend total to $15.4 million.

Past Lives [PSTLV] earned $166K in its fourth weekend of wide release, advancing its total across $10.04 million.
