Barbie and Oppenheimer Win the Weekend Box Office Again as They Hold Off Haunted Mansion

Barbie and Oppenheimer have once again won the domestic weekend box office with ticket sales of $93 million and $46.2 million, respectively. Newcomer Haunted Mansion put up a good fight with a debut performance of $24.2 million, but it couldn’t muster up enough scares to take down the behemoth known as Barbenheimer.

As reported by Comscore, Barbie and Oppenheimer only saw a week-over-week decline of 43% and 44%, respectively, and continue to perform very well in their second weekend in theaters. Barbie has reached a North American total of $351 million and a global tally of $774.5 million while Oppenheimer has brought in $174 million domestically and $400.48 million worldwide.

Disney’s Haunted Mansion, on the other hand, has earned $33 million worldwide. This second attempt to bring the iconic Disney Parks ride to the big screen has a long way to go to recoup its $150 million production budget before marketing.

In our Haunted Mansion review, we said, “A soulful ghost story that does an unexpectedly solid job speaking to younger audiences about the afterlife, nailing the film’s appropriately spooky gateway-horror ambitions.”

Sound of Freedom took 4th place with $12.4 million and has pushed its domestic total to $148.9 million. Rounding out the top five was Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, which took $10.7 million domestically in its third weekend in theaters. So far, the latest Mission: Impossible has earned $139.23 million in North America and $448.5 million worldwide.
