For the second consecutive week, the biopic “Bob Marley: One Love” continues its triumphant run, remaining on the top spot at the box office and leaving its competitors facing dust.

Despite facing off against two new releases and Sony’s “Madame Web,” which has been struggling to gain traction, “One Love” has maintained its dominance.

Pulling in an impressive $13.5 million during its opening week, the Paramount film starring Kingsley Ben-Adir has already surpassed its $70 million production budget, grossing nearly $72 million domestically.

Directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green, the film delves into Bob Marley’s journey, focusing on the creation of his iconic album “Exodus” and culminating in a legendary concert in Jamaica that propelled him into legendary status.

The film’s success has been attributed to Bob Marley’s timeless music – despite being released decades ago, his songs still resonate powerfully through the world.

“Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba – To the Hashira Training” secured the second spot with $11.7 million, showcasing a strong debut despite fewer theater locations compared to “One Love.”

Meanwhile, “Ordinary Angels,” a faith-based film starring Hilary Swank, takes third place with $6.5 million, proving that quality content exists beyond blockbuster hits.

However, “Madame Web” continues to struggle, failing to impress audiences with just $6 million in its second week, bringing its total earnings to a disappointing $35 million.

Rounding out the top five is Universal’s animated feature “Migration,” which earns $3 million in its tenth weekend, boasting a domestic total of $120 million.

As “One Love” continues to captivate audiences, its reign at the box office remains unchallenged, proving that the spirit of Bob Marley lives on.
