It’s a bit of a surprise. The animated film Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, the 21st feature film in the Japanese saga, took control of the North American box office this weekend for its release, according to estimates on Sunday from the specialized firm Exhibitor Relations. The film raked in an estimated $20.1 million between Friday and Sunday, far ahead of the weekend’s other release, Beast. “It’s another remarkable release for Crunchyroll”, the American distributor of the film controlled 95% by Sony, noted David Gross, analyst at Franchise Entertainment Research. With 11.6 million over the weekend, Beast, Universal studios, comes in second, an “average” debut […] for an action movie starring an animal,” David Gross added. The animal in question is a huge lion chasing a widower (Idris Elba) and his daughters on a safari. 8 million over the weekend. Brad Pitt plays one of seven hitmen trying to kill each other on a high-speed train between Tokyo and Kyoto. $9 million. The Top Gun sequel, still starring Tom Cruise, has already scooped a total of 683 million in North America and 703 million in the rest of the world. The animated film Krypto and the Super-Animals, with the voices of Muriel in French Robin and the singer Soprano in particular, comes in fifth position with 5.8 million recipes.
