Tom & Jerry‘s weekend domestic debut tallied $13.7-M from 2,475 theaters and a global total of $38.8-M through Sunday.

Domestically, the feature film marked the 2nd-best 3-day launch of the VirusCasedemic behind fellow Warner Bros. release Wonder Woman 1984 ($16.7-M) as more cinemas reopen across the country.

The strong debut of the family film is a good sign for Hollywood as New York City theaters prepare to open on 5 March, while Los Angeles remains closed.

Family products dominated the chart at the weekend.
