Movie Monday: ‘One Love’ Beats ‘Angels’ and ‘Demon Slayer’

Bob Marley: One Love had one thing to say to its distributors at Paramount Pictures: Don’t worry about a thing.

Despite the arrival of a bevy of cinematic newcomers, the war for the weekend’s box office crown was swiftly put down by reigning champ One Love. The Bob Marley biopic earned an estimated $13.5 million in North America, which left One Love once again jamming at No. 1. The film has now earned $71.1 million domestically, according to Entertainment Weekly, and $120.5 million worldwide. Yep, it may be February, but the sun is shining on this little film.

While One Love ruled the roost, the latest Demon Slayer movie carved out a little money for itself, too. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba—To the Hashira Training did not let its own cumbersome title stand in the way of an $11.5 million stateside debut. Demon Slayer did even better overseas, hacking and slashing its way to a tidy $30.6 million. That brings its grand weekend total to $41.7 million.

Ordinary Angels—a faith-based film led by two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank—got off to a rather ordinary start. It earned $6.2 million to finish third. But folks who did see the film loved it, giving Ordinary Angels an A+ mark according to CinemaScore. Here’s to hoping Angels finds its wings a bit later in its run.

Meanwhile, Madame Web is stuck in its own web of financial difficulty. Sony’s superhero story snared just $6 million in its second weekend, pushing its overall total to a rather paltry $35.4 million.

Perhaps Madame Web could take a tip or two from Migration. Despite being released last year, the animated family movie is still holding strong in these waning days of February—notching yet another top-five finish. It earned $3 million this weekend, pushing its total domestic tally to $120.4 million. And if you look at Migration’s performance worldwide? It’s up to $268.7 million. Now, those are totals worth quacking about.
