John Krasinski’s ‘IF’ Tops The Weekend Box Office With $35 Million


John Krasinski’s fantasy-comedy IF, about childhood imaginary friends coming to life, debuted at No. 1 at the box office (but fell short of box office expectation) with $35 million. This contributes to a slower weekend for the domestic box office, currently trailing 22% behind 2023 and 42% below 2019. Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes dropped to second place with $26 million. The Strangers: Chapter 1 exceeded expectations, opening in third place with $12 million. The Fall Guy took the No. 4 spot with $8.4 million in its third weekend. The Amy Winehouse biopic Back To Black landed at No. 5 with a disappointing $2.85 million. (Variety)
