Raya and the Last Dragon kept going strong despite the COVID-19 pandemic, taking in an additional $5.2 million for a three-week total of $23.4 million.

Also retaining its spot from last weekend was the live-action/animated film Tom & Jerry, which remained in second place, earning an additional $3.8 million for an impressive four-week total of $33.7 million.

Debuting in third place was the spy thriller The Courier, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Despite less showtimes per location than many other recent wide releases, it earned $2 million in 1,433 theaters.

Chaos Walking starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley fell one spot to fourth place during its third weekend in theaters, taking in estimated earnings of $1.9 million for a total take of $9.7 million to date.

Rounding out the top five again this weekend is The Croods: A New Age, starring the voices of Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds.
