Dumbledore’s Secrets struggled to attract a crowd. The last film in the Harry Potter saga will be the lowest-grossing in the franchise’s history.
After its dramatic drop in attendance last week, Fantastic Beasts 3 hangs on as it can at the US box office. In third place in the ranking, David Yates’ film gleaned $8.3 million for its third weekend in North American theaters, which brings its total to $79.55 million across the Atlantic. A very low score for the saga Harry Potterwhich already suggests that Dumbledore’s Secrets will be the lowest-grossing opus in the franchise’s history at the US box office.
And for good reason, the first two parts of Fantastic Beasts managed to rack up $160 million and $230 million respectively in America. Number 3 will certainly struggle to cross the 100 million mark… But fortunately, the saga is very international and remains popular in cinemas around the world, allowing Fantastic Beasts 3 to save the furniture and approach $330 million in international revenue after three weeks of operation. Warner Bros. did not say what minimum score the film had to make to afford a sequel.

sonic 2 confirms its very good performance and maintains a solid second place.
