Cinderella's Castle even turned a little spooky to celebrate, although we're not sure if there is much to celebrate with the new film, as the opening weekend box office figures for Haunted Mansion were much lower than expected.

Barbie and Oppenheimer continued to dominate movie ttheaters over the weekend, as Haunted Mansion opened without the promotional help of its stars, who are on strike.


Whether the lack of star power during the build up to the films release has had a detrimental effect on the film, or the fact that the movie itself has had poor reviews the figures for opening weekend are far from good, in fact they are downright bad!

Disney’s Haunted Mansio” took in around $24 million at the weekend box office, which is shockingly bad for a film that cost $200 million to make and market.


Haunted Mansion has been left spooked by Barbie which has brought in a huge $93 million in its second weekend, while Oppenheime made $46.2 million in its second weekend.


Since opening Barbie has made $750 million worldwide, while Oppenheimer has racked up $400 million in global ticket sales.
