Paw Patrol Triumphs Over Saw X at Weekend Box Office


In the realm of law enforcement, the pursuit of the enigmatic serial killer Jigsaw has been a relentless but fruitless endeavor for ten movies. However, it appears that a team of canine heroes in vehicles, collectively known as PAW Patrol, has managed to accomplish what countless human officers could not. PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, the latest cinematic installment of this beloved children’s franchise, claimed the top spot at the domestic box office this weekend, raking in an impressive $23 million. This feat was enough to secure its victory over second-place Saw X, which made its debut with $18 million, and third-place The Creator, debuting with $14 million. It’s safe to say that this weekend was a winning one for new releases.

These three newcomers decisively overshadowed the previous champion, The Nun II, which earned $4.6 million in its fourth week and boasts a cumulative total of $76 million. Rounding out the top five is yet another newcomer, albeit one of a less exhilarating nature than a film about crime-fighting canines on wheels. The Blind, a biographical film with religious undertones centered on the right-wing figure Phil Robertson, one of the personalities from Duck Dynasty, earned $4 million. It’s likely that this movie found its audience among those who propelled Sound Of Freedom to success.

In the lower half of the top ten, the rankings are primarily occupied by films that held their positions from the previous week: A Haunting In Venice, Dumb Money, The Equalizer 3, Expend4bles (experiencing a 69 percent decline in its second week), and a rather unexpected surpriseā€”Barbie. Barbie slipped five places in its eleventh week and might soon bid adieu to the top 10. Nevertheless, with a remarkable total of $633 million, Barbie has nothing to worry about.

Here’s the complete top 10 list from Box Office Mojo:

  1. PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie
  2. Saw X
  3. The Creator
  4. The Nun II
  5. The Blind
  6. A Haunting In Venice
  7. Dumb Money
  8. The Equalizer 3
