Box Office: ‘Mean Girls’ Threepeating on Top as January Goes Out With a Whimper

With no new wide releases this weekend, theater traffic is reaching a near halt to mark the end of January.

Mean Girls” looks to lead domestic charts once again, while the crop of freshly Oscar-nominated features look to extend their big screen runs armed with renewed new awards buzz.

Universal’s release of Apple’s star-studded action-comedy “Argylle” will hope to make a splash and kickstart business next weekend.Until then, Paramount’s “Mean Girls” is staying on top, projecting about $6.7 million over the three-day frame.

That would mark the lowest-grossing No.

1 release since “Top Gun: Maverick” returned to the top slot with $6 million in its 15th weekend of release back in September 2022.

Since then, there was also “Magic Mike’s Last Dance,” which debuted to $8.5 million over Super Bowl weekend last year.It marks another solid hold “Mean Girls,” which looks to push its domestic gross north of $60 million in the coming days.
