‘Nobody’ unseats ‘Raya’ for top slot, as box office finally shows signs of life post-COVID


(LOS ANGELES) — Nobody became a somebody at the box office over the weekend, knocking out three-week champ, Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon. Universal’s shoot-em-up action film starring Better Call Saul’s Bob Odenkirk snagged the top spot with a estimated $6.7 million debut.

The North American box office is slowly recovering from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic: for the first time since the pandemic began, every film in the top five grossed over $1 million.

For those who didn’t — or won’t yet — return to theaters, Nobody heads to premium VOD in a few weeks. 

Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon took second place with an estimated $3.5 million in its fourth week of release.  Tom and Jerry delivered an estimated $2.5 million in its fifth week of release for a third place finish; Chaos Walking finished fourth, earning an estimated $1 million; and The Courier rounded out the top five with an estimated $1 million in in its second week of release.
