According to studio estimates Sunday, receipts totaled about $56 million in U.S. and Canada theaters.

Data firm Comscore says that weekend box office revenue hasn't been so low since September 2000.

More people went to the movies the weekend after Sept. 11, 2001.

Pixar's “Onward” remained the top film by earning $10.5 million in its second weekend.

The Christian romance “I Still Believe” brought in $9.5 million.

“Bloodshot,” with Vin Diesel, grossed an estimated $9.3 million.

Those totals are notably below expectations.
