Animated sequel to Sing hold firm at number 2 with a second weekend take of $19.6 Million, a very slim 18% drop over last weekend.

The movie has now taken $89.6 Million in North America on its way to breaking the $100 Million milestone by next weekend.

The King's Man

The Matrix Resurrections

Despite the fact that the fourth in The Matrix series got a simultaneous release on HBO Max and cinemas the movie looks destined to be a flop at the box office as the movie falls to number 5 this weekend with $3.82 Million, a large 68% drop over last week.

The film is competing with a similar market to the top movie at the movie Spider-Man: No Way Home which is potentially taking some of its audience, but after two weeks the much anticipated and hyped movie has taken just $30.9 Million.
