The animated movie about Superman's dog saving the day has a long way to go before it makes back the $90 million it cost to make.
With $23 million in ticket sales, DC League of Super-Pets beat Jordan Peele's Nope at the box office over the weekend in the United States.
Variety said that DC League of Super-Pets, in which Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson plays Superman's dog Krypto and works with Kevin
Hart's pet Ace and other pets to save superheroes that Lex Luthor has captured, made another $18.4 million overseas,
bringing its total worldwide earnings to $41.4 million. The animated adventure has a long way to go before it makes back its $90 million cost,
and its opening is behind that of other animated movies like Lightyear, which made $51 million, and Minions: The Rise of Gru, which made $107 million.
It made about the same amount of money as The Bad Guys, which made $23.9 million; Sing 2, which made $22.3 million; and Encanto, which made $27 million.
In our review of DC League of Super-Pets, we said it "may have a thoughtful way of making movies,
but it doesn't have a voice cast that can give its characters life and personality." The superpowered pets end up getting the short end of the stick.
Their stories aren't as interesting as the movie hopes, and they're never really funny, other than a few quick jokes. " Nope earned $18.5 million in its second weekend in theaters,
Nope has made $80.5 million in the U.S., but it hasn't opened anywhere else yet. A 58 PERCENT DECREASE FROM ITS FIRST WEEKEND.
