The good news: the computer-animated film fell only 35 percent, while roughly half of indoor theaters in North America are now open. The bad news: capacity is capped at 25 percent at New York City theaters, which began reopening a week ago, while Los Angeles County cinemas won’t be back online until this week.
Capacity in L.A. county will also be capped at 25 percent, or 100 people per auditorium (that’s somewhat better than New York, where it is 50 people). Giant AMC Theatres is opening numerous L.A. sites, including AMC Century City on Monday.
Overseas, Raya grossed another $11.5 million for a subdued global total of $52.6 million. A number of major circuits both abroad and internationally refused to play the title after asking for more lucrative terms since Raya is also available on Disney+ for a premium price of $30.
The biggest headline of the weekend was Avatar, which on Saturday once again became the top-grossing pic of all time at the global box office after getting re-released in China. It reclaimed the crown from Avengers: Endgame on Saturday when jumping the $2.8 billion mark, compared to $2.797 for Endgame.
Avatar‘s weekend haul in China was $21 million, according to Disney/20th Century. A hefty $6.2 million came from Imax screens.
Back in North America, Warner Bros.’ family film Tom & Jerry wasn’t far behind Raya, grossing $4.1 million for a domestic total of $28.2 million and $66.9 million globally.
