“The animated superhero movie features the voices of Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and Kate McKinnon”–Paul Ebeling

Warners believes the movie, which is playing in 4,315 theaters and cost $90 million to produce, will have strong legs throughout August as the number of new Summer movies drops and there is less competition. Audiences bestowed Super-Pets with an A- CinemaScore, which could translate into strong word of mouth.

League of Super-Pets also features the voices of Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski and Keanu Reeves, among others, and marks the theatrical directorial debut of Jared Stern.

Elsewhere on the Top 10 chart

Jordan Peele and Universal’s Nope came in No. 2 for the weekend with a strong $18.6 million for a 10-day domestic tally of $80.6 million. The sci-fi/horror adventure fell 58 percent (some had predicted it would fall more than 60 percent).

Marvel and Disney’s Thor: Love and Thunder came in third in its fourth outing with $13 million, pushing its domestic total past the $300 million milestone for a global total of $662.4 million.

Universal and Illumination’s Minions: The Rise of Gru did enough business in its fifth weekend to come in fourth with an estimated $10.9 million for a domestic cume north of $320.4 million (Gru is the top-grossing animated film of the COVID-19 era). Overseas, it has earned $390 million for a worldwide total of $710.4 million.

Top Gun: Maverick continued to impress all the way in its 10th weekend. The Paramount and Skydance tentpole rounded out the top five with an estimated $8.2 million for a domestic total of $650.1 million through Sunday, one of the best showings of all time, not adjusted for inflation.

Like the Top Gun sequel, Warners and Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley biopic is enjoying a long run. Now in its sixth weekend, Elvis has grossed nearly $130 million domestically and $234.3 million worldwide.

Universal’s Jurassic World Dominion has stomped past $940 million globally thanks to a late release in Japan. Domestically, it has grossed $369.5 million.

Focus Features and Blumhouse’s Vengeance placed 10th domestically with a subdued opening in the $1.8 million range. The specialty pic is playing in fewer than 1,000 theaters.

Have some fun, see a film in a theater this week, the chaos is over, Keep the Faith!
