PAW Patrol Wins At The Box Office…. Yes, You Read That Right

Welcome to another weekly installment of Couch Potato, where I go over what went down on the big and small screens so you can be a better-informed viewer.

Even Jigsaw’s scariest game couldn’t bring people out to the multiplex (in October, but details) to see a Saw title. Instead, the big winner at the box office this weekend was PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie. The four-legged gang coasted to first place this week with $23 million in its opening weekend, outpacing its predecessor by $10 million. Meanwhile, Saw X came in second place in its debut weekend with $18 million, which at least will bring Lionsgate a profit on Jigsaw’s latest tricycle ride, as its budget was $13 million. Finally, The Creator also wished it saw a better debut, rounding out the “Top of the Top 10” in third place with $14 million in its opening weekend. 

In other “news” (if you even want to call it that), Dumb Money went wide to the sound of crickets as predicted, barely making the Top 10 at all and struggling to climb to $10 million after a few weeks of being in theaters. 

Reporting live from the couch, when it came to movies on Netflix this week, Love at First Sight came in first place for the second week in a row to the tune of 15 million views. Unfortunately, Spy Kids: Armageddon couldn’t muster up the same level of hype as the original series, debuting in second place with less than half of that at 6 million views. Rounding out the “Top of the Top 10” was In Time, climbing up from its placement last week to third place with 5.7 million views. 

If you were looking to binge something, all eyes were on Sex Education’s final season, which proved it will be missed, amassing a whopping 97 million hours viewed in its debut week. True crime fans came out in waves to watch Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal with 13 million hours viewed. Finally, One Piece fans had a good run at number one and can still rejoice as they snag the last spot in the “Top of the Top 10,” coming in third place this week.

Next week, The Exorcist: Believer hits theaters, which itself got scared by the upcoming Eras Tour movie and ran away to this weekend instead. We’ll see if it can knock Ryder and the gang out of first place.  

Stay tuned for that, and until next time, happy viewing!
