The War with Grandpa ($1.5 million), Honest Thief ($1.1 million) and Tenet ($905k) rounded out the Top 5. Warner's announced this week that Tenet will be arriving on home media December 15.
The weekend saw a $1 million gross improvement over last week, but with this past week averging a staggering 107k coronavirus cases and Disney already moving their last two wide releases of the year off the calendar, the likelihood of things getting any better for theaters is slim.
Next week sees the release of horror-comedy Freaky, as well as the limited release of award-hopeful Ammonite. Streaming services will debut documentaries Fireball (Apple) and I Am Greta (Hulu).
