The theater, which reopened in New York City this weekend, did not ignite box office revenue. Despite several major new releases such as Disney’s “Raya and the Last Dragon” and Lionsgate’s Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley’s action movie “Chaos Walking,” the studio estimates on Sunday that the theaters in North America Total sales remained relatively modest.
Walt Disney Animation’s Raya and the Last Dragon has earned an estimated $ 8.6 million from 2,045 locations in North America. A well-reviewed fantasy adventure featuring the voices of Awkwafina and Kelly Marie Tran can also be rented and streamed at home by Disney + subscribers for $ 29.99. No streaming gross has been reported.
Warner Bros.’s Tom and Jerry, which HBO Max subscribers can stream for free, brought $ 6.6 million from 2,563 North American theaters over the second weekend. Last weekend, the animated film recorded the nation’s best opening of the year for $ 13.7 million.
Meanwhile, “Chaos Walking” debuted for $ 3.8 million. A future set film directed by Doug Liman of “Edge of Tomorrow” cost about $ 100 million.
Currently, about 80% of the domestic market is allowed to operate in limited capacity. Many parts of North America, including Los Angeles, most California counties, Washington DC, and most of Canada, are not yet fully open.
Disney wants to keep “Raya” in the theater throughout the spring. There are few major family movies on the schedule until early summer, and the company wants more play during spring break and as more areas reopen.
Internationally, “Raya and the Last Dragon” earned an estimated $ 17.6 million from 32 territories. The most profitable of these was China at $ 8.4 million.
