Universal’s Night School opened atop the weekend box office with an estimated $28 million for Universal Pictures. That nearly makes back the budget for the film in one weekend. Warner Bros.’ latest animated feature Smallfoot also opened over the weekend. The film took in an estimated $23 million which won’t make the film a blockbuster but is the best opening for a Warner Animation Group feature since The LEGO Batman Movie in 2017.
Rounding out the top five were the top three from last weekend. Universal’s fantasy feature The House With A Clock In Its Walls dropped to #3 in its second week with an estimated $12.5 million for Universal. The film has taken in $44.7 million in two weeks and a total of $53 worldwide so far. Fourth place saw Lionsgate’s R-rated thriller A Simple Favor taking in $6.6 million. The film has totaled $43 million in three weeks.
Finshing the top five was The Nun from Warner Bros./New Line Cinema with another $5.4 million. The successful horror film has totalled $109 million domestically and another $221 million internationally since release.
