The Little Things remains on top of the box office during Super Bowl weekend. The film was released into theaters last week at the same time that it debuted on HBO Max. The crime-noir thriller starring Denzel Washington and Jared Leto has now grossed $2.1 million in theaters. The film sees Deputy Sheriff Joe "Deke" Deacon (Washington) teaming up with Sgt. Jim Baxter (Rami Malek) to search for a serial killer who's terrorizing Los Angeles. As they track the culprit, Baxter is unaware that the investigation is bringing up memories from Deke's past, revealing secrets that could affect more than their case alone.
Warner Bros.' other big simultaneous HBO Max release, Wonder Woman 1984, drops into fourth place behind The Croods: A New Age in second and Liam Neeson's The Marksman in third. The sequel hasn't gotten the same critical acclaim as its predecessor, and now carries a "rotten" score on the popular film review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes.
Down the chart, Monster Hunter, the film adaptation of the popular video game series, remains in fifth place. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings come in at 10th place with its IMAX debut. Its two sequels will soon follow it into theaters.
