DC’s ‘Super-Pets’ tops N.America box office

The DC League of Superpets, a picture of animated superheroes, has grossed an estimated $23 million this weekend in a modest premiere that topped the North American box office, industry watch ExhibitorRelations reported Sunday.

A Warner Bros. movie based on DC Comics’ Legion of Super Pets will feature Superman’s dog Krypto (a.k.a. Burke Kent) teaming up with Shelter Dog and others to fight the other four-legged sins. Held by the evil Lex Luthor.

Franchise Entertainment Research analyst David A. Gross rated the opening as “moderate” but said similar films showed “legs” stretching well for weeks. “Superpet” is voiced by Dwayne Johnson, John Krasinski, Kate McKinnon and Keanu Reeves.

Second place Friday through Sunday was last weekend’s box office hit, Universal’s horror film Nope, directed by Jordan Peele. The sci-fi mystery Alien Invasion starring Daniel Kaluuya grossed $18.6 million.

Third place went to Disney’s Thor: Love and Thunder, down one spot from last weekend. An action comedy starring a muscle-bound Chris Hemsworth as a space Viking who wants his ex-girlfriend (Natalie Portman) to make $13.1 million.

Universal’s Computer Animated Minions: Rise of Guru came in at number four. The latest goofy installment of the popular Despicable Me series has sold $10.9 million
