The movie “Barbie” continues to dominate the box office in North American cinemas, nearly a month after the release of the work, which has become a global phenomenon, despite the controversy it raised to the point of being banned in some countries.
This film, directed by Greta Gerwig and starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, entered the history of cinema last week after it became the first work signed by a director whose global revenues exceeded the threshold of one billion dollars.
The work, which narrates the adventures of the famous Barbie doll made by Mattel in the real world with her friend Ken, at the end of the last week, brought in revenues of nearly $ 34 million in the United States and Canada, according to estimates published Sunday by the specialized company, “Experior Relations”.
The famous doll stole the spotlight again from “Oppenheimer”, as the film, directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Cillian Murphy, collected revenues of nearly $ 19 million.
The three-hour film deals with the main stations in the life of physicist Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967), who invented the atomic bomb.
And in third place, up one place from last week, was “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem,” the latest movie in the “Ninja Turtles” series.
And the famous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collected more than $ 15 million in its second week in American cinemas.
It was followed in fourth place by the action movie “The Meg 2: The Trench”, produced by “Warner Brothers”.
And the work, the new sequel to Jason Statham’s adventure in which he tries to survive the attacks of giant prehistoric sharks, collected revenues of nearly $ 12.7 million.
As for the fifth place, it was for the movie “The Last Void of Demeter”, based on the novel Dracula, and produced by “Universal Pictures”. In its first week on North American screens, the work earned $6.5 million.
