Box Office Round-Up ~ 1/22/24

Mean Girls won the box office in its second weekend in theaters, with the top five a virtual repeat of last weekend. The musical remake had a sharp drop (compared to its holiday weekend opening) to gross $11.6 million, putting it just past $50 million overall domestically. In second place, Jason Statham-led actioner The Beekeeper passed $30 million overall with a sophomore weekend gross of $8.6 million.

In third place, Wonka continued its very solid hold from the holiday season into 2024 with a sixth-weekend total of $6.7 million. It has $187 million total in the U.S., with $200 million not out of the question thanks to lean competition for the next week or two. Migration moved back up to fourth place with $5.46 million, putting it just shy of $100 million overall. It just barely beat out Someone Like You, which took fifth place with $5.4 million.

Outside the top five, new release I.S.S. took seventh place with $3 million, while Oscar contender Poor Things cleared $20 million overall with $2 million on its expansion to wide release.
