Box Office: Quiet here but Fast and Furious 9 burns international rubber

The Americans are banking on Fast and Furious 9 to bring out the crowds next month as it has done brilliantly in China and Korea. Almost as if Covid never happened.

This week, Peter Rabbit 2 is creeping upwards like a sleepy bunny on a warm summer night, with $310,000 off 256 screens this weekend to put the picture at number 4 after 9 weeks and a total of $29.78 million. 

June Again is still doing pretty well, on 306 screens, making $290,000 in week 3 to take the total to $1.81 million. By comparison, Penguin Bloom from earlier this year made $732,000 off a similar number of screens in week 3, bringing the total swag to around $6 million at that stage.
