This dominance does come at a cost, however, as the movie's returns have dropped off considerably (53%, to be exact) since last week when it took in nearly $50 million. So far, the film has made $59.5 million domestically and $53.9 million overseas, bringing the international total to well over $113 million. The eight-day domestic tally is slightly behind Split's.
Elsewhere, another genre offering is bombing. Joe Cornish's The Kid Who Would Be King will only make $7.3 million during its first weekend in theaters for the fourth spot. This is Cornish's first directorial project since Attack the Block (2011), which introduced audiences to John Boyega.
A modern take on the Arthurian legend, the movie is about a young boy (played by Andy Serkis' son, Louis Ashbourne Serkis) who discovers the Sword in the Stone and must stop the world from ending by assembling his own Knights of the Round Table. Patrick Stewart portrays the wizard, Merlin, while Rebecca Ferguson plays the evil witch, Morgana.
The Kid Who Would Be King lost third place to Aquaman ($7.4M), which could very well surpass The Dark Knight Rises this weekend and become the highest-grossing DC feature in history. The No. 2 spot will go to Neil Burger's drama, The Upside, with Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is all set to web the fifth spot with around $6.3 million in North America. Domestically, the animated offering has made a total of $164+ million; the foreign total is slightly ahead, $165 million. All in all, the subversive take on Marvel's famous wall-crawler has made $329.3 million across the globe.
Into the Spider-Verse recently nabbed an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature.
