Violent Night did, however, have a merry $13.3 million debut.

A combatant Santa Claus could not dethrone Queen Ramonda’s reign at the box-office.

The Black Panther sequel retained its No. For the fourth week straight, Wakanda Forever67 remained at No. 1 on the domestic and international box office charts. Wakanda Forever earned an extra $17.5 million across North American theaters this weekend, pulling in $393.7 million overall since its Nov. 11 theatrical debut. Worldwide, it has grossed an estimated $733 million.

Violent Night, a holiday action comedy that stars David Harbour as a gritty St. Nick who rescues a wealthy family held hostage by mercenaries on Christmas Eve, followed in second place with a jolly good $13.3 million debut. The film also stars John Leguizamo and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation alum Beverly D’Angelo.

Harbour told EW he wanted to do as much as the on-screen fight scenes as possible, which involved a “tremendous amount” of training. He said that he had become very big for it, and that he was also training for jiu jitsu for months before he appeared on screen. “I wanted to do as many as possible, so I did a lot of training. “

I gained a happy belly, but also got shoulders and other things that you don’t see in the Coca-Cola Santa drawings,” added the Stranger Items star. It was very strange. Because I had these huge love handles, my movement was restricted. I used to be with some stunt guys in Winnipeg. We would go crazy exercising, then go out and eat poutine or whatever we wanted, in the middle Canada. We were kind of like giant walruses. ”

The star-studded animation Strange World, which features voice work from Jaboukie Young-White, Lucy Liu, Jake Gyllenhaal, Gabrielle Union, and Dennis Quaid, followed behind Harbour’s bad Santa at No. 3. It earned an additional $4.9 million during its second week at the box office, which brings the total to $25.5 million overall. The horror film The Menu and the war film Devotion rounded out the top five with $3.5 million and $2.8 millions, respectively.
