Black Adam punched its way to a second weekend at the top of the box office.

As the second weekend of Black Adam draws to a close, the box office estimates have rolled in. Domestically the film took in $27.7 million, a drop of 59% from its opening weekend which is in line with most comic book films. The domestic total now stands at $111.13 million. Some projections are calling for a final domestic run of between $160 to $170 million.

For second-week comparisons, Shazam! took in $24.45 million, while Aquaman took in $52.11 million. The former went on to a domestic total of $140.37 million, while the latter took in $335.06 million.

In the foreign markets, the film took in $39 million. The Black Adam foreign total stands at $139 million. This brings the global total to $250.13 million.

Using the same comps as before, Shazam! took in $223.19 million from the foreign markets over the course of its run for a total of $363.56 million. Aquaman did very well in the foreign markets and took in $808.69 million for a global total of $1.143 billion.

If we want to compare Johnson to his last pre-pandemic leading film, we’ll jump back to Jumanji: The Next Level which took in $316.83 million domestic, $481.37 million foreign for a global total of $798.21 million.

Next week’s wide releases include One Piece Film: Red and Armageddon Time.

Black Adam is now in wide theatrical release.
