The highly anticipated sequel to the 2009 blockbuster, Avatar: The Way of Water, had been reigning supreme at the US box office since its premiere in December of last year.
But, the tides have finally shifted and the mighty Avatar 2 has fallen from its throne. A new champion has emerged, and it’s not what you might expect.
The latest horror thriller, Knock at the Cabin, has claimed the top spot at the box office, beating out Avatar 2. Starring the charismatic and talented Dave Bautista (known for his role in Guardians of the Galaxy), Knock at the Cabin grossed a staggering $14.2 million over the weekend, making it the undisputed champion of the box office charts. But, the competition is not far behind.
In a close second place, we have another newcomer to the charts, the comedy 80 for Brady. This film raked in $12.5 million, surpassing Avatar 2 and proving that it’s not just thrills and chills that get audiences excited.
These two films have shaken up the box office scene, and it will be interesting to see how they fare in the coming weeks.
Ah, the third place finish for this film with a staggering 10.8 million dollars in revenue. While it may not have secured the top spot, it’s still an impressive feat considering the current state of the industry.
