‘Tom & Jerry’ Scores Second Biggest Box Office Opening Since the Start of Pandemic
Tom & Jerry is No. 1!
The live-action/CGI hybrid just notched the second-best domestic opening of the entire pandemic as of Sunday (February 28), according to THR.
The movie brought in $13.7 million from 2,475 theaters and a global total of $38.8 million through Sunday, the outlet reported.
The opening marks the second-best three-day launch of the pandemic behind fellow Warner Bros. release Wonder Woman 1984 ($16.7 million) amid theater re-openings around the country.
“The strong debut of the family pic — by COVID-19 terms— is a good sign for Hollywood as New York City theaters prepare to open on March 5 (Los Angeles). It’s also a win, at least in the short term, for Warners’ policy of opening its 2021 titles simultaneously in theaters on HBO Max,” THR reported, adding that roughly half of the country’s theaters are still closed.
Chloe Moretz, Michael Pena, Colin Jost, Rob Delaney, and Ken Jeong star in the new film.
