The film collected $33 million between Friday and Monday to take first place at the box office, according to Comscore. It easily bested second-place finisher “Bad Boys for Life,” which earned $12 million over the weekend and pushed its four-week total to $166.3 million.

Director Sam Mendes’ “1917,” which was considered a strong contender to win the best-picture Oscar on Sunday but lost out to “Parasite,” took third place with $9.2 million.

“Doolittle,” starring Robert Downey Jr., earned $6.5 million, followed by the comic sequel “Jumanji: The Next Level,” which earned $5.6 million, giving it a nine-week total of $298.5 million.

Rounding out the top 10 films of the weekend were “The Gentlemen” ($4.2 million); “Gretel And Hansel” ($3.6 million); “Little Women” ($2.4 million); “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” ($2.31 million); and “Knives Out” ($2.3 million).
