We got a little Top 10 shake up this weekend as Elvis inched past Lightyear into the #6 spot. Bob’s Burgers finally fell out, while Downton 2 slipped to #10. A couple more days and it’s gone for good.

Our newcomer Nope didn’t do as well as projected, most likely due to to mediocre word of mouth with a continually-sliding RT Audience score of 71% and a ‘B’ CinemaScore. $44M instantly put it at #9 on the list, and the #8 spot is easily reachable. That opening for an original IP (which oh, by the way, is rated R) is the biggest since Jordan Peele’s own 2019 film Us ($71M). Would love to hear from anyone here if they’ve seen it, and what they thought.

Weekly Top Gun: Maverick update: Another $10M (with only a 16% drop) has it currently #9 ALL TIME at $635M. 2015’s Jurassic World is next at #8 with $653M, and then it’s the 1997’s OG juggernaut Titanic at #7 with $659M. Just give it a few more weeks.

And not sure why The Gray Man still isn’t reporting any domestic box office numbers. I know it released here but still showing nada.

Next Weekend: 2 Wide releases, but the only one picked here is DC League of Super-Pets (32 players). The bottom spots in the Top 10 are pretty wide open, and this being the only DC movie of the summer + family-friendly + animated = $$$.
