‘Wakanda Forever’ dominates US box office

NEW YORK ( Associated Press) – ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ dominated the North American box office for a fourth straight weekend, while ‘Violent Knight’ opened to $13.3 million, according to industry estimates released Sunday.

However, Netflix’s decision to no longer screen “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” and leave it streaming has been affected. That film opened in 600 theaters last weekend, and while that’s well short of the typical 4,000 for big shows, it reported a respectable $15 million.

The Walt Disney Co’s “Wakanda Forever” has been at the top of the box office for four weekends. It has grossed $733 million worldwide, including $339 million internationally.

“Violent Night,” a Christmas-themed comedy-horror film, was the only opening this weekend, and cost approximately $20 million to produce.

Disney’s animated film “Strange Worlds” finished third with $4.9 million in its second week in theaters.
