The new “Tom and Jerry” is the cat’s meow in the box office.
The revival of the beloved cat-and-mouse cartoon debuted with $13.7 million in ticket deals throughout the end of the week — the best homegrown opening of the year.
The opening was $3 million short of the top-earning discharge during the COVID-19 pandemic, “Wonder Woman 1984” in December.
“Tom & Jerry,” which stars Chloe Grace Moretz, was also released on HBO Max, where it will be streaming for a month.
“With half of theaters still closed, the pandemic still a threat, and ‘Tom & Jerry’ available at home, this is a very good opening,” David A. Gross, who runs the movie consulting firm Franchise Entertainment Research told the Associated Press. “Under normal circumstances, this weekend would comfortably be above $35 million — a positive sign for the business and for theatrical’s pull over home entertainment.”
Only 42%, or 2,475 theaters, are open at this moment.
“Tom & Jerry” acquired another $25 million universally, as indicated by the studio.
On Friday, cinemas in New York will resume interestingly since March at 25% limit.
