Box Office: ‘Secret Life of Pets 2’ ekes out No. 1 Spot as ‘Dark Phoenix’ sputters
HOLLYWOOD – Call it a misfire, but “The Secret Life of Pets 2” and the “X-Men” installment “Dark Phoenix” are not packing much of a punch with both films debuting well below expectations.
“The Secret Life of Pets 2” can still claim first place this week. Even with an underwhelming start, the animated animal sequel was able to claim victory over “Dark Phoenix,” the final entry in the “X-Men” series and first to be released by Disney.
Disney’s “Aladdin” landed in third place on the box office charts pushing its domestic grosses to $232 million.
In fourth, “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” saw a steep decline in ticket sales.
Rounding out the top five is Paramount’s “Rocketman.” The biopic on the life and times of Sir Elton John brought its haul to $50 million.
