Focus Features’ latest release, Lisa Frankenstein, featuring Filipino actress Liza Soberano in a supporting role, earned an estimated $3.8 million in North American theaters during a slow-moving movie weekend overshadowed by the Super Bowl championship game.

It trails behind US box office winner, Argylle, which garnered just an estimated $6.5 million for the Friday-through-Sunday period, as reported by industry watcher Exhibitor Relations. The film stars Dua Lipa, Henry Cavill, John Cena, and Ariana DeBose, with Bryce Dallas Howard portraying a spy novelist who finds herself in over her head.

Given the Apple co-production’s budget of $200 million – and its sharp drop from an $18 million opening weekend – Variety has declared it “the year’s first big bomb.”

MGM action flick The Beekeeper, starring Jason Statham, stayed steady in third place, taking in $3.5 million.

In fourth spot was Fathom Events’ The Chosen: S4 EP 1-3, about the life of Jesus Christ. It earned $3.2 million.

And in fifth, Warner Bros.’ fantasy musical Wonka kept up its long top-five streak, making $3.1 million in its ninth week of release. Timothee Chalamet stars as the eccentric chocolate maker.

Analytics company Comscore said total ticket sales for the weekend were at a near all-time low for a Super Bowl weekend, at roughly just $42 million.
