Which movies are at the top five box office this week? Morbius leads

After the stupendous success of superhero movies at the box office in the recent weeks there has been a slight lull. However, the newest comic book adventure from Universe of Marvel Characters “Morbius”opened at the top position followed by Paramount’s action-adventure “The Lost City” and “The Batman” is now at the third position.

Sony’s “Morbius” cashed in $39.1 million after its release in 4,268 screens across theaters in North America in its first weekend and $44.9 million in international releases increasing its global total to $84 million.

The vampire-infused comic book movie cost Sony $75 million though it spent a lot of money—several million on advertising, as well.

Jared Leto stars in the title role. Michael Morbius is a renowned biochemist who is transformed into a vampire when he attempts to cure himself. He suffers from a rare blood disease. The cast also includes
Adria Arjona
Matt Smith
Jared Harris and Michael Keaton.



The Daniel Espinosa directed movie has received an average response from both critics and moviegoers with a CinemaScore of C+ and 17 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Sony is planning to release other stand alone movies from the Universe of Marvel Characters including Aaron Taylor-Johnson as “Kraven the Hunter” and Dakota Johnson as “Madame Web.”

Morbius will soon face competition and might be dethroned from its No. 1 position as April 8 will see the release of “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” and the much awaited Harry Potter spinoff “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” on April 15.

Paramount’s “The Lost City” is at No. 2, in its second weekend at the box office. The Sandra Bullock-Channing Tatum romantic comedy grossed $14.8 million this weekend and its total has reached $54.5 million and is still a bit short of its $68 million cost.



Robert Pattinson’s “The Batman” is at the third position with $10.8 million. It has grossed $349 million domestic sales and continues to do well internationally. It has crossed $710.5 million as revenues from its worldwide collection and is the top domestic and international movie of the year, to date.



Tom Holland’s “Unchartered,” a movie that is adapted from a video game, is at the fourth position with $3.6 million while Crunchyroll’s anime film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 collected $1.9 million this weekend at the box office.
