These past few days, Beyoncé 'Renaissance' tops box office. The movie about her show, "Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé," opened in North America on Sunday and did very well, with $21 million in ticket sales.
The movie business usually slows down after Thanksgiving and into early December, but "Renaissance" beat the chances. When prices aren't taken into account, this is the first weekend in 20 years that a movie has made over $20 million (since "The Last Samurai").

Queen Bey is the new movie star. Beyoncé wrote, directed, and produced the live film "Renaissance," which made $21 million in its first weekend, which was a little more than expected.
These ticket sales make this one of the best openings for a concert movie. It joins "The Eras Tour" by Taylor Swift ($92.9 million), "Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert" ($31.1 million) in 2008, "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" (2011), and "Michael Jackson: This Is It" (2009).
"Renaissance" made a lot of money at the box office on what would have been a bad start to December otherwise. Theater chain AMC says it's the first time in 20 years that a movie has opened to more than $20 million on the weekend after Thanksgiving, which is usually a slow time for movies.
Queen Bey wrote, directed, and produced "Renaissance," a movie about her Grammy-winning record tour. It opened in 2,539 theaters in the US and Canada and 94 international countries. From those 2,621 theaters, it made $6.4 million. Elizabeth Frank, executive vice president of global programming at AMC Theatres said:
Thank you from AMC Theatres Distribution and the whole movie theater business, Beyoncé, for bringing this amazing movie straight to her fans. The fact that fans and critics alike loved it on a weekend that most people in the business don't pay attention to shows how talented she is as an actress, producer, and director.- Elizabeth Frank
Of course, the reaction has been very positive. Beyoncé fans came out in droves on the first day, and they're getting what they came for almost three hours of Beyoncé. This movie got a perfect score of "A+" from the first group of moviegoers polled, and all reviews have been good. Some people think that "Renaissance" could have a strong increase in the next few weeks since people who aren't in a hurry could keep finding it over the holidays.
In its third weekend, Lionsgate's "The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes" earned about $14.5 million, which put it in second place. The prequel has now made more than $121 million in the United States.
"Godzilla Minus One" opened in 2,308 theaters and made $11 million, which was the biggest opening for a foreign film in the U.S. this year. It came in third on the North American charts. Toho International released a well-reviewed Japanese hit movie that only cost $15 million to make but has already made $23 million in Japan. The 33rd Godzilla movie from Toho is set after World War II and stars Ryunosuke Kamiki. It was directed by Takashi Yamazaki.
"Trolls Band Together" made $7.6 million in its third weekend, putting it in fourth place and taking its total in the United States to $74.8 million.
Fifth place went to Disney's "Wish," which made $7.4 million from 3,900 sites, 62% less than its disappointing first weekend. It has now made $81.6 million around the world. "The Marvels," the studio's other big movie in theaters, is also coming to an end after four weekends. It made a terrible $197 million worldwide, even though it cost $300 million to make and sell.


"Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé" is the biggest hit of the year so far, making $21 million in its first week after making $11.5 million in its first day from 2,539 sites. That, along with "Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour," which came out in October to a huge number of copies, makes this look like the first year ever that two concert documentaries have started at the top of the domestic charts.
With $14.5 million, The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes is in second place. Godzilla Minus One is in third place with $11 million, Trolls Band Together is in fourth place with $7.6 million, and Wish is in fifth place with $7.4 million.
The next five movies in the top ten are: Napoleonan (No. 6), Animal (No. 7), The Shift (No. 8), Silent Night (No. 9), and Thanksgiving (No. 10). These movies have made a total of $5.6 million.
