Alita Battle Angel leads

The James Cameron-produced film Alita: Battle Angel earned an estimated 27.8 million dollars over the weekend. It’s made 36.5 million dollars total since its debut on Thursday.

The rest of the charts remained fairly lackluster as well. Last week’s champ, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, fell 38 percent in its second weekend earning 21.2 million dollars, bringing its total to 62.7 million dollars— which is less than the first film earned in its opening weekend.

Warner Bros. also had the No. 3 movie this weekend with its meta-romantic-comedy Isn’t It Romantic, starring Rebel Wilson as a woman who bonks her head and wakes up in a rom-com. It debuted to 14.2 million dollars and has earned 20.5 million dollars since its opening earlier in the week.

The other romantic comedy offering in theaters, What Men Want, with Taraji P. Henson, landed in fourth place in its second weekend with 10.9 million dollars. And Happy Death Day 2 U, the horror sequel from Blumhouse and Universal, rounded out the top five with 9.8 million dollars. The first film opened over twice as high, with over 26 million dollars, but with a production budget under 10 million dollars, it’s still bound for success.

The Dwayne Johnson wrestling film Fighting With My Family also opened in four theaters on Wednesday, earning 131,625 dollars over the weekend.
