It’s the end of January and the box-office is dead this weekend with no new wide releases and traffic into cinemas at a stand still.

As a result, the “Mean Girls” musical once again topped the domestic charts with a projected $6.7 million for the three-day frame and headed towards a domestic gross of over $60 million this week.

It’s the lowest grossing No. 1 release since September 2022 when “Top Gun: Maverick” pulled in $6 million in its 15th weekend of release. The next nearest was “Magic Mike’s Last Dance” with $8.5 million during the Super Bowl weekend last year.

The Jason Statham-led “The Beekeeper” came second with $6.4 million in its third weekend – meaning its domestic haul now sits at $40 million through Sunday.

“Wonka” will be third with a further $5 million and nearing the $200 million mark in North America, “Anyone but You” will come in fourth with a domestic total just past $70 million, and “Migration” will be fifth with a total to date of just over $100 million.

Both “American Fiction” and “Poor Things” got bumps from their Oscar nominations with 43% and 32% jumps respectively from last weekend. Universal will release the action-comedy “Argylle” next weekend in a hope to kick start the dead quiet period.
