Wonka continued to be sweeter than pure imagination at the box office during the first weekend of 2024. The musical comedy from Warner Bros. took the top spot again, adding $14.4 million and bringing its domestic total to $164.6 million. This makes the Timothée Chalamet-starrer the winner for three out of its four weekends so far, coming in with a $465.8 global haul.
New release Night Swim came in second place this weekend, though its “C” CinemaScore may be cause for it not making more of a splash. The Universal horror film scored a $12 million debut.
Third place belongs to the king of the seas. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom dropped a spot this week, bringing in $10.6 million in its third weekend. The Jason Momoa-led sequel from Warner Bros. has a domestic total of $100 million, and a global total of $334.8 million.
Universal and Illumination’s animated flick Migration makes it to the fourth spot, bringing in a three-day total of $10.25 million and a domestic total of $77.8 million. Globally, the pic has grossed $150.7 million.
Finally, rounding off the weekend in the fifth spot is Sony’s Anyone But You. The Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell starrer posted great holds for a romantic comedy and was up 9% from last week. It made $9.5 million, bringing the domestic total to $43.7 million.
