Paramount’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem,” in its second weekend, is estimated to earn nearly $17 million. Conversely, Warner Bros’ “The Meg 2: The Trench” is expected to experience a 60% decline in its second weekend, bringing in approximately $12 million. On another note, Disney’s “Haunted Mansion” has amassed an impressive two-week total of $47.2 million, delighting fans of the timeless attraction.
In the world of international cinema, the Tamil language action comedy “Jailer” opened in 375 theaters, making a remarkable $1.58 million within its first two days. This success showcases the growing popularity and global reach of diverse films that cater to audiences with different cultural backgrounds.
