Ridley Scott’s historical epic “Napoleon” has conquered the worldwide box office.

The Joaquin Phoenix-led war drama debuted to a strong $78.8 million globally from Friday to Sunday, topping the worldwide box-office despite some stiff competition and mixed reviews from both critics and audiences.

Domestically it landed with $32.5 million for its five-day holiday release, managing to come in second behind “The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes” which scored $42 million for the five-day and held onto the top spot. That film is now up to $197.2 million globally to date.

The other big newcomer this weekend was Disney’s animated “Wish” which debuted to $31.7 million domestically for the five-day and $17.5 million from around two dozen international markets for the three-day.

That film is being rolled out slowly overseas between now and Christmas so only 40% of its global market is available. Even so – it’s a misfire with just a $49 million global opening weekend.

“Trolls Band Together” was fourth domestically with $25.3 million for the five-day followed by “Thanksgiving” in fifth with $11.1 million for the same period.

News for “The Marvels” meanwhile just keeps getting worse as the film made $9.2 million domestically and has pulled in just $187 million globally so far.

That film looks set to finish as easily the lowest-grossing MCU movie in history – well behind 2008’s “The Incredible Hulk” with $264 million.

On the flip side, “Five Nights at Freddy’s” has become the highest-grossing Blumhouse release of all time with $283.1 million.
