nobody movie_Bob Odenkirk’s Nobody Leads Box Office, Godzilla vs Kong Rules Overseas.

Bob Odenkirk, action star?

It’s a premise so unexpected, so odd, that it might have enticed audiences to check it out.Nobody‘, a revenge thriller that sees an otherwise modest one Odenkirk (“Breaking Bad”, “Better Call Saul”) kick ass and take names. “Nobody” debuted on top of the domestic album box office charts and generated $6.7 million from 2,460 venues. It’s a solid start, but not a stellar one, as theaters reopen in earnest in Los Angeles and across the country.

Directed by Ilya Naishuller, Nobody was well received by critics and audiences alike. It centers on a mild-mannered suburban dad who goes into vigilante mode after someone breaks into his home.

At the international box office, Nobody added an additional $5 million, taking its worldwide gross to $11.7 million. With solid word of mouth and no significant competition, Nobody is primed to stay on the big screen before Universal pushes the film to premium video-on-demand within weeks. The budget was $16 million, so getting out of the red shouldn’t be hard.

Although “Nobody” topped the US box office with ease, the film was hardly the weekend’s biggest winner. Outside of North America, Godzilla vs. Kong launched internationally with a massive $121 million from 28 countries. The Warner Bros. film, which pits legendary monsters against each other in a matchup for the ages, had a particularly impressive start in China, grossing $70.3 million in three days. Ticket sales for Godzilla vs. Kong, a co-production with Legendary Entertainment, mark the biggest opening weekend in China for a non-local film. This could bode well for the film to open in US theaters and on HBO Max on Wednesday.

Apart from “Godzilla vs. Kong” (March 31) and another Warners title, the video game adaptation “Mortal Kombat” (April 16), the local cinema tents will present new releases in the spring. That’s up to Disney fundamentally revised its film calendar Last week, plans were postponed or changed for several titles, including Black Widow, Emma Stone’s Cruella, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and Pixar’s Luca. Perhaps the biggest hit for cinema operators Black Widow has been pushed back from May 7th to July 9th. The Marvel superhero adventure will premiere simultaneously in theaters and on Disney Plus for a premium rental of $30. Cruella, an origin story for the 101st Dalmatian“Villain, will similarly launch in theaters and on the company’s streaming platform when it releases on March 28.

Disney has been testing several hybrid strategies amid the pandemic, most recently with the animated adventure Raya and the Last Dragon. The animated adventure, which is currently in theaters, slipped to second at the box office on its fourth weekend of release with $3.5 million. To date, the film, which is also available to Disney Plus subscribers on Premier Access, has grossed $28 million in US theaters and $82 million worldwide.

Otherwise, a string of holdovers rounded out the box office charts. “Tom and Jerry” took third place with $2.5 million from 2,464 locations. After five weeks in theaters, Warner Bros.’ live-action animation hybrid has raised $37 million.

At #4, Lionsgate’s sci-fi fantasy film Chaos Walking grossed $1.18 million for a domestic balance sheet of $11.3 million. The $100 million film, starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley, will result in a massive write-down for the studio. “The Courier,” a Cold War drama directed by Benedict Cumberbatch and Rachel Brosnahan, rounded out the top five with $1 million and brought in ticket sales to $3.4 million.
