Bullet Train, the action comedy starring Brad Pitt, keeps its number one spot at the box office.

Continuing its reign at the top of the box office this weekend was Bullet Train. The action-comedy stars Brad Pitt as an assassin named Ladybug who must find a briefcase on a bullet train in Japan. When he runs into other assassins on the train, his mission must take a detour. The film brought in another $13.4 million for a two-week domestic total of $54.5 million.

The family friendly DC League of Super-Pets, starring the voice talents of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, stayed in second place this weekend with an additional $7.17 million, bringing its three-week total to $58.3 million.

Trailing right behind with $7.15 million was Top Gun: Maverick, which fought its way back up three spots, thanks to its re-release for fan appreciation weekend. The sequel to the 1986 movie with Tom Cruise back in the lead role has now grossed an incredible $673.8 million after twelve weeks.

In another close race, Thor: Love and Thunder starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman won out, remaining in fourth place with an estimated $5.31 million. The latest film in the Thor franchise has now earned $325.4 million after six weeks.

Jordan Peele's supernatural thriller Nope fell just short to round out the top five. In its fourth week at the box office it brought in $5.3 million for a total of $107.5 million.  ~Claudia Minardi
