After three weeks atop the domestic weekend box office, The Batman has finally been defeated by the $31 million performance of Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum’s The Lost City.
As reported by Variety, The Lost City, which has been described as Romancing the Stone meets Raiders of the Lost Ark, cost $68 million to produce and is well on its way to earning that back.
In our The Lost City review, we said it “is bland and messy whenever Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum aren’t on screen. Thankfully, their comedic banter is front and center for most of the film, with Bullock, playing a kidnapped smut author, showing why she still excels at action and romance, and Tatum playing her well-meaning cover model, proving once again that he’s Hollywood’s greatest Himbo.”
The Batman still managed a second-place finish with domestic ticket sales of $20 million. While that was a 44% decline from last week, it still helped bring its North American total to $332 million.
The Indian war epic RRR (Roudram Ranam Rudhiram) took third place with $10 million in ticket sales, marking “one of the widest domestic rollouts for an Indian movie. RRR cost $73 million to produce.
Tom Holland’s Uncharted placed fourth with $4.9 million and Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie rounded out the top five with $4.5 million, the latter declining 74% week-over-week. Domestically, the films have brought in $133.5 million and $27 million, respectively.
