Box-Office Report: ‘Jackass Forever’ and ‘Moonfall’ Dominate; ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ In Third Place

This week marks the first “big” week of large tentpole movies since the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home before the Omicron wave shook the theatre industry yet again. We’ve got two huge movies (though only one, if you live in Canada, more on that very soon), Moonfall and Jackass Forever, the second and highest-grossing movie of the weekend respectively. Considering the fact that the Roland Emmerich sci-fi movie did not release in Canada (even if the entire movie was shot there), amid a middling critical reception, a $10 million opening weekend isn’t terrible but falls quite short of its $138-146 million budget. Looks like another box-office dud in the books for Emmerich. Much to his dismay, No Way Home continues to rake in money, as more theatres (including mine! finally!) reopen this week.

Below are the 10 highest-grossing films of the weekend:

  1. Jackass Forever (Paramount): $24M – 3,604 theatres
  2. Moonfall (Lionsgate): $10M – 3,446 theatres
  3. Spider-Man: No Way Home (Sony/Marvel Studios): $9.6M (-13%) – 3,600 theatres
  4. Scream (2022) (Paramount): $4.73M (-35%)- 3,227 theatres
  5. The King’s Man (Disney): $1.2M (-29%) – 1,910 theatres
  6. Redeeming Love (Universal): $1M (-43%) – 1,797 theatres
  7. American Underdog (Lionsgate): $800.000 (-31%) – 1,470 theatres
  8. The 355 (Universal): $700.000 (-47%) – 1,710 theatres
  9. Licorice Pizza (MGM): $614.947 (-2%) – 786 theatres
  10. Ghostbusters: Afterlife (Sony): $535.000 (-31%) – 954 theatres
