Barbie Crosses $500 Million in North America and Wins Its Fourth Consecutive Weekend Box Office Play4ever

Alongside winning its fourth consecutive weekend box office, Barbie has officially crossed $500 million in North America.

As reported by Comscore, Barbie’s dominance can’t be stopped as it brought in another $33.7 million and only saw a week-over-week drop of 36%. To date, Barbie has earned $526.30 million in North America and $1.18 billion worldwide.

When Barbie crossed $1 billion at the global box office, it sent director Greta Gerwig into the record books as the first woman to cross the billion-dollar mark as a female director.

Oppenheimer held on to its second-place spot with domestic earnings of $18.8 million. Oppenheimer has reached $264.26 million in North America and $649.02 million worldwide.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem placed third with $15.75 million domestically, which was only a 44% drop from its opening weekend. The latest TMNT film has brought in $72.78 million in North America and $94.7 million worldwide.

Meg 2: The Trench swam to fourth place with $12.7 million and The Last Voyage of the Demeter opened in fifth place with North American box office sales of $6.5 million.

In our The Last Voyage of the Demeter review, we said the film that features a more horrific version of Dracula “should delight horror fans raised on Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi, and offers an R-rated bite of vampiric brutality for genre fans with a stronger bloodlust.”
