The comedy/horror film “Freaky,” starring Vince Vaughn, was the top-grossing film at the North American box office for the second consecutive weekend despite grossing just $1.2 million, according to industry estimates released Sunday.

“The War With Grandpa,” a family comedy starring Robert De Niro and Uma Thurman, took second place with $733,000 Friday through Sunday at theaters in the United States and Canada, Comscore reported. It has made $16.1 million in seven weeks.

The drama “Let Him Go” took third place with $710,000, followed by the horror film “Come Play” with $550,000.

A re-release of Disney’s 1994 comedy “The Santa Clause” was in fifth place with $461,000.

Rounding out the top 10 domestic releases, as estimated by Comscore, were “Honest Thief” ($452,000), “Vanguard” ($400,000), “Tenet” ($360,000), “The Last Vermeer” ($225,000) and “True to the Game 2” ($161,000)

Indoor movie theaters in Los Angeles County remain closed indefinitely. Orange County had reopened its theaters with limited capacity for the past couple months, but now that the county has been demoted to the most-restrictive purple tier of California’s four-tier coronavirus regulatory system, its indoor theaters must also close, leaving only limited outdoor screenings available in Southern California.
