‘Wonka’ Leads Box Office For Third Weekend


“Wonka” held onto the top spot at the domestic box office for the third straight weekend, with the Warner Bros. musical featuring Timothée Chalamet bringing in another $14.4 million in ticket sales.  Meanwhile, “Night Swim” swam to $12 million in its domestic box office opening, good enough for a second-place finish behind Christmas holdover “Wonka.”

Produced by horror maestros Jason Blum and James Wan, “Night Swim” was the weekend’s only new wide release as the post-holiday doldrums begin. Domestic revenue was down a steep 18 percent from the same frame in 2023. 

The Universal horror pic, playing in North American 3,250 theaters, came in slightly ahead of expectations despite scathing reviews and a C CinemaScore from audiences, although it didn’t come anywhere near to matching the $30.4 million opening of Universal and Blumhouse’s “M3GAN” on the same weekend a year ago.

The top 12 movies of them weekend are as follows:
