Disney and Marvel’s “Eternals” fell 61 percent in theaters over the second weekend, but it still hangs in the first place ahead of newcomers like “Clifford the Big Red Dog.”

Disney and Marvel’s “Eternals” had a steep decline in their second weekend in theaters, but it still hangs in the first place ahead of newcomers like “Clifford the Big Red Dog.”

Both have played exclusively in theaters, but the main difference is that “Shang-Chi” simply received better ratings from audiences and critics. “Shang-Chi” is also available to stream on Disney + this weekend. “Eternals” has earned $ 281.4 million worldwide to date.

Second place went to “Clifford the Big Red Dog”, which opened in theaters this week and was also available to stream at home for Paramount + subscribers. It made an estimated $ 16.4 million from 3,700 theaters over the weekend and $ 22 million over its five days of release.

Even if the critics were not impressed (it has 48% on Rotten Tomatoes), the audience was more favorable, which gives it a promising A CinemaScore. And “Clifford” managed to do that in the face of unsafe film conditions for families.

Blockbusters topped the top five with “Dune” in third place with $ 5.5 million, “No Time to Die” in fourth with $ 4.6 million and “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” in fifth place with $ 4 million. Notably, “Venom 2” this weekend became just the second pandemic-era movie to exceed the $ 200 million mark in the box office. The other was “Shang-Chi.”
