The live-action / CGI hybrid marked the second-best domestic opening of the entire pandemic, as families saw feature adaptations of the iconic feline and mouse enemies.
Tom and Jerry made $ 13.7 million in North America with 2,475 theaters in North America during the weekend with several friends at the box office and $ 38.8 million on Sunday.
Domestically, the feature film about the iconic Elle Cat and Pesky Mouse, which is Enemy, launched the epidemic’s second-best three-day launch since the release of fellow Warner Bros. release Wonder Woman 1984
The strong opening of family portrayals, at least in the COVID-19 era, is a good sign for Hollywood as the New York City Theater prepares to open on March 5 (Los Angeles is closed). It is also a win, at least in the short term, for a policy on HBO Max to open its 2021 titles simultaneously in theaters.
Half of the country’s cinemas are closed. Directed by Tim Story and based on cartoon characters of the same name created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, Tom and Jerry’s live-action cast is directed by Chloe Grace Moret.
Family products dominated the chart. The Croats of Universal and DreamWorks Animation: A New Era fell just 30 percent with competition from Tom and Jerry. Out of 14 million locations, Crude 2 grossed $ 1.2 million at $ 52.4 million and $ 156.2 million globally at $ 14 million locations.
The competition for kids will get even more heated when both Disney Debut Raya and Last Dragon on March 5 for $ 30 indigestion in theaters on Disney +. Disney and Pixar’s Soul have crossed $ 100 million at the overseas box office – it was only available on Disney + in the USA – totaling $ 111.7 million in ticket sales more to come.
