“DC Krypto Super-Dog” jumps to the top of the North American box office

The animated film DC Krypto Super-Dog and its super-powered canine hero have risen to the top spot at the North American box office, specialist firm Exhibitor Relations estimates on Sunday.

With the voices of several stars such as Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, the film follows the adventures of Krypto, Superman’s dog, who must save the superhero along with other four-legged characters. It grossed $23 million on its debut weekend.

In second place is the horror film “Nope” by director Jordan Peele, known for the terrifying “Get Out”. “Nope,” an unclassifiable film between horror and sci-fi, all in a Western setting, earned $18.5 million ($80 million since release).

Oscar-winning actor Daniel Kaluuya portrays a horse trainer who is terrified of mysterious phenomena appearing in the skies of his ranch. But he and his sister (Keke Palmer) are torn between fear and a desire to gain fame by capturing these scenes for social media.

Third came Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth installment in the saga of the Norse superhero with the hammer, played by Chris Hemsworth, accompanied by Natalie Portman and Christian Bale, grossing $13 million ($300 million since release).

In fourth place is “The Minions 2: Once Upon a Time Gru” (almost 11 million, over 320 million since release). The animated film explores the beginnings of Gru, a villainous yet lovable character in this hit saga.

Fifth, Top Gun: Maverick and its $8 million. The sequel to Tom Cruise’s hit airplane film has grossed over $650 million in North America 36 years later.
