The new Indiana Jones does not find the treasure in theaters, theater attendance is weak

Indiana Jones, and executives from the Walt Disney Co. and Lucasfilm, made a somewhat discouraging discovery this weekend. Moviegoers didn’t flock to the theater to see “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” and bid farewell to Harrison Ford as the iconic archaeologist.

The film, whose budget exceeded $250 million, fell short of expectations, grossing $60 million at 4,600 theaters in the United States and Canada, according to studio estimates released Sunday.

Including $70 million in international screenings in 52 markets, “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” celebrated a $130 million worldwide opening. It has easily managed to be at the top of the box office, but it has not been the great farewell that many expected for one of the most iconic characters in modern cinema. Disney expects to gross $82 million in the United States over the Independence Day holiday weekend and $152 million worldwide.

“Dial of Destiny” is the fifth installment of the adventure saga created by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas in 1981, and the first not directed by Spielberg himself. Veteran James Mangold has taken the reins on the Spielberg-approved script, in which an elderly Dr. Jones retires from his job at the university and embarks on a new adventure with his goddaughter Helena (Phoebe Waller-Bridge). ).

The film opened to much fanfare at the Cannes Film Festival in May, with a celebration worthy of Ford, who has said this was the last time he played the character.

Here are the 10 highest-grossing movies this weekend in the US and Canada, according to Comscore. The final figures are out on Monday:

1. “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” $60 million.
