The ‘Barbenheimer’ debate is over: the Barbie movie dropped a bomb on the competition over the weekend.
Barbie seized the #1 spot with $155 million – the biggest opening weekend of 2023 so far.
And while it couldn’t topple Barbie, Oppenheimer posted strong numbers with $80 million in 2nd place.
Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One took third with $19.5 million.
The Sound of Freedom ($18.8 million) and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny ($6.7 million) rounded out the top five.
All told, it was the fourth-largest box office weekend in U.S. history
Did you pull a ‘Barbenheimer’ double feature over the weekend? Will any movie this year beat Barbie‘s opening weekend?
