Jungle Cruise Wins Dwayne Johnson Another Box Office Crown, But There’s Cause For Concern

On that note, David Lowery’s The Green Knight managed to make a nice splash in its first weekend, managing to just barely outpace M. Night Shyamalan’s Old and take second place with $6.8 million earned in ticket sales domestically. It’s not exactly a record setter, but it is one of the best single weekend performances on the big screen by an A24 film, putting it in the same league as Ari Aster’s Midsommar and Hereditary, and Josh and Benny Safdie’s Uncut Gems. Despite its impressive scale and beautiful design, the new release cost less than $22.5 million to make, so it will be interesting to follow in upcoming weeks and see what kind of legs it shows. It has received very positive reviews, and we’ll have to wait and see if/how that translates to buzz.
