Lionsgate’s Spiral has held on to the top spot for a second weekend in the US bringing in a further $4.6M over the weekend. The ninth film in the Saw franchise fell a hefty -48% on its opening frame but was still able to garner an average $1,521 per-screen average in 2,991 theaters. The domestic tally for the Darren Lynn Bousman directed film now sits at $15.8M.

Internationally, Spiral grossed a further $6.7M for a global total of $22.5M to-date. Though those numbers seem low, even for a Covid-era release, the weekend has seen the franchise now cross the $1B mark worldwide.

Sitting in second place this week was Jason Statham action-thriller Wrath of Man. The film added $2.9M domestically, a drop of only -20.7% from the previous weekend. The R-rated film grossed a reported $975 per-screen from 3,007 theatres. It’s three-week total now stands at $18.8M. The film is also playing well to international audiences when it has now accumulated $52.2M. With more markets still to open – including the UK – the film has already amassed an impressive $71M world-wide.

Languishing in third place is Angelina Jolie’s survival thriller Those Who Wish Me Dead, in its second weekend at the box office the Warner Bros. release fell an estimated -35.2% brining in just $1.8M. It’s domestic total now stands at $5.5M alongside it’s simultaneous release on WarnerMedia streaming service HBO Max. Globally, Those Who Wish Me Dead has now grossed an estimated $13M.

In fourth place and continuing to perform incredibly well is Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon. The PG-rated animated adventure grossed a little under $1.7M in it’s twelfth week at the box office. That represents a drop of a mere -2.3% from the previous weekend despite also being available on Disney+ for a $30 fee. The film grossed an average $699 per-screen from 2,375 theatres in North America. Overseas, Raya has picked up $63.3M for a global total just shy of $112M.

Rounding out our top five this week is another Warner Bros. release, Godzilla vs. Kong. In its eighth week at the box office the kaiju monster-mashup pulled in an additional $1.4M. That’s a negligible -5.6% drop from last week and represents around $562 per-screen average in 2,552 theatres across North America. Domestically the film has now amassed $96.9M which, whilst impressive for a Covid-era release, pales compared to the $335.4M it has grossed in international markets. Globally the film has now accumulated $432.3M.

A huge story from international markets comes from the release of Universal Pictures Fast 9. The film hits UK cinemas on June 24 and arrives in the US the following day but is already playing in cinemas across the globe including China where it has already grossed $132M. In total the latest film in the long-running franchise raked in $162M across the international market making it easily the biggest release of the pandemic era. Expect big things when the film hits the US and UK next month.
