Cheering fans in front of a wall of entertainment images.

It was a quiet weekend at North American movie theaters, dominated once again by Sony’s “The Garfield Movie” and Warner Bros. “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.” “The Garfield Movie” earned a chart-topping $14 million in ticket sales while “Furiosa” settled into third place in a close race with “IF,” both earning around $10.8 million, according to studio estimates on Sunday. Disney/20th Century Studios’ “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes” landed in fourth place with $8.8 million. Universal's “The Fall Guy" rounded out the top five with $4.2 million. The 2024 box office is down nearly 24% from last year.
