Read Time:1 Minute, 30 Second

It seems “Barbie” isn’t backing down at the box office anytime soon.

The movie, starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, held strong in the number one spot at the box office for the second week in a row, earning $93 million.

Any predictions that enthusiasm for the film would fade after opening weekend were dispelled with only a 43% drop off in ticket sales from its first week.

“Barbie” also had, according to Variety, the seventh-biggest second weekend in history, after other franchise giants, including “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” ($149 million), “Avengers: Endgame” ($147 million) and “Infinity War” ($114 million), “Black Panther” ($111 million), “Jurassic World” ($106 million) and “The Avengers” ($103 million).

“Oppenheimer” also continued to pull in audiences, earning $46.2 million over the weekend.

According to Variety, Universal claims “Oppenheimer” is the first R-rated film to gross more than $10 million for seven days in a row on Friday, a streak that continued on to 10 days through the weekend.

Overall, “Barbie” is on track to cross the $1 billion mark worldwide, with $774.5 million so far, only the second film this year to do so (the other is “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” which earned $1.34 billion).
