Big monsters are still swinging!

The $200 million Warner Bros. monster mash, also featuring humans like Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall and Brian Tyree Henry, has rumbled to a worldwide total of $390.2 million.
The rest of the chart didn’t feature much activity, with the R-rated thriller NOBODY again in second place over its fourth weekend with $2.5 million, barely dipping from last week’s figure.
