Boxing Day saw a changing of the guard at the U.S. box-office as “Wonka” took back the top spot from both challengers “The Color Purple” and “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom”.

The Timothee Chalamet-led musical took the top spot with $8.9 million followed by the Jason Momoa-led DC Comics adaptation with $8.3 million and the movie musical taking $7 million.

“Wonka” is expected to cross $100 million today, whilst many are highly impressed with “The Color Purple” which is now up to $25 million after just two days and is predicted to surpass the $100 million mark.

Coming in behind them were “Migration” at $6.5 million, Clooney’s “The Boys in the Boat” at $3 million, rom-com “Anyone But You” at $2.6 million, “The Iron Claw” at $1.7 million and “Ferrari” at $1.5 million.

It’s expected “The Boys in the Boat” will end up with a total gross around the $40 million range whilst Michael Mann’s “Ferrari” will finish on par with Ridley Scott’s “All the Money in the World” – a little over $20 million.

The overall Christmas and post-Christmas days are being seen as somewhat disastrous as there’s no juggernaut like “Spider-Man: No Way Home” or “Avatar: The Way of Water” to lift everything up.
