The North American box office hit a 2023 low this weekend, with top film “The Nun II” estimated to take in a paltry $8.4 million, industry watchers said Sunday.
“The numbers are not good,” said David A. Gross of Franchise Entertainment Research, describing an entire month of poor results.
He said the months-long strikes by Hollywood screenwriters and actors — reportedly at a key point Sunday — “cannot end soon enough.”
The strikes have prevented stars from promoting upcoming films.
This weekend’s top five films had a combined take of roughly $31 million — less than “Barbie” alone earned in its fourth weekend out.
