Super Bowl weekend is always quiet in terms of moviegoing, but this year marked an all-out washout due to the ongoing pandemic and continued theater closures in many major markets.
The Los Angles-neo nor crime-drama The Little Things stayed atop the chart in is second weekend with $2.1 million for an estimated 10-day total of $7.8 million in North America and $13 million globally. It is the first 2021 film from Warner Bros. to open simultaneously on HBO Max and in cinemas amid the ongoing pandemic, a controversial decision that has irked some in Hollywood.
HBO Max has not revealed viewership numbers for The Little Things, just as it hasn’t for Wonder Woman 1984.
Directed by John Lee Hancock, The Little Things features Denzel Washington and Rami Malek as different breeds of cops working to catch their suspect, played by Jared Leto. Last week, Leto was nominated for both a Golden Globe and SAG award for best support actor.
The movie’s top-grossing theaters are several drive-ins in California, several indoor cinemas in Texas and Phoenix.
Meanwhile, Universal and DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods: The New Age continued to croon loudly in its 11th weekend with $1.8 million — similar to its previous frame — for a domestic tally of $46 million and $147.7 million globally (it is playing in 17 foreign markets). The sequel, which is also available on premium VOD, is benefiting from being the only studio family film in the marketplace.
Liam Neeson’s action thriller The Marksman placed No. 3 with $1 million for a domestic total of $9.1 million for Open Road/Briarcliff.
WW94, placing No. 4 came in below $1 million as it winds down its run, earning $905,000 for a domestic total of $40.3 million and $154.5 million. The movie is also playing on HBO Max.
