SNAKE EYES Opens At #2 In What Proved To Be A Disappointing Weekend At The North American Box Office

The reviews for new releases Old and Snake Eyes have been a little middle of the road, and that was reflected in how they both performed at the North American box office this weekend. Check it out...

Despite the emergence of the Delta variant of COVID-19, the world is still slowly reopening, and that's why we've seen new movies arrive in theaters on a weekly basis for the past month or so. This week's offerings were both exclusive to the big screen, with Old and Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins battling to make an impact at the North American box office. 

Space Jam: A New Legacy exceeded expectations last weekend (despite mostly negative reviews), but the same cannot be said for these two similarly poorly received movies. 

Old took the #1 spot with a pretty underwhelming $15.75 million estimated haul for the weekend, while Snake Eyes - which is supposed to serve as Paramount Pictures' relaunch of the G.I. Joe franchise - came in at #2 with $14 million. They received C+ and B- CinemaScore ratings from moviegoers, so it's unlikely that positive word of mouth will help these two in the long run.

Black Widow managed to top Space Jam: A New Legacy's $10 million haul with a solid $10.86 million, but there was a notable drop in box office takings this weekend. 

Some believe that could be a result of the rise in COVID cases, but it's just as likely moviegoers weren't particularly interested in watching movies that have Rotten Tomatoes scores of 52% (Old) and 42% (Snake Eyes). Ultimately, it was probably a combination of factors, but this just goes to show that the box office certainly hasn't bounced back just yet.
