Timothee Chalamet’s “Wonka” kept topping the box office on Thursday. The film earned a further $8 million on that day, pushing its domestic total to $110.6 million.

The $125 million budget movie continues to power towards profit with its worldwide total now tipped to be over $290 million so far and still going strong.

Universal and Illumination’s “Migration” came in second with $6.5 million to bring its domestic total to $37.1 million, whilst “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” slipped to third with $5.8 million and a domestic gross of a disappointing $58.3 million so far.

One real surprise is “The Color Purple”. The musical stormed out of the gate on Monday with a stunning $18 million, but its momentum has run out fast, falling to $3.3 million just three days later. Despite this, it’s still sitting at $32.3 million after just a few days of business.

Rom-com “Anyone But You” is in fifth with $2.8 million, up by 7% and taking in a first-week haul of $16 million domestically – not bad for a $25 million film. “The Boys in the Boat” is sixth with $2.4 million and $13.6 million since Christmas.

Rounding out the top ten were “The Iron Claw”with $1.4 million, “The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes” with $1.3 million, “Ferrari” with $1.2 million and “The Boy and the Heron” with $0.8 million.

Despite the lack of a giant tentpole, Christmas Week (December 23rd-29th) pulled in an estimated $281.4 million at the domestic box office – up 14% from the same week a year ago.
