Death on the Nile opens with $12.8 million at the box office

0

20th century studios Death on the Nile starts this weekend in first place at the box office. This weekend comes just before Valentine’s Day and includes Super Bowl Sunday, which is usually a box office battle. Based on the crime novel by Agatha Christie, Death on the Nile opens with $12.8 million over three days. That total includes $5.1 million from Friday. Universal Pictures’ Marry mea romantic comedy based on a comic book slated for Valentine’s Day weekend will come in third at the box office with $8 million.

Marry me‘s budget was a fraction of what director Kenneth Branagh had available Death on the Nile — $23 million compared to $90 million. Marry me is also available on Peacock’s premium tier for home streaming.

ComicBook.com’s Charlie Ridgely enjoyed it Death on the Nile good enough and gave it a 3.5 out of 5 score in its review. He writes: “These accept Death on the Nile largely sticks to Agatha Christie’s original story, so if you’ve already read her story or seen the 1978 film, there aren’t any big surprises at the end. But Agatha Christie has such an enduring legacy for a reason. Her characters and stories have stood the test of time because they are as excellent today as they were when she first published them. Branagh and writer Michael Greene are well aware of this and love the literary icon’s work. They just put the parts in place, provided a steady hand when needed, and allowed Christie and the cast to work their magic.”

Death on the Nile and Marry me are both playing in theaters now. The complete list of the top 10 films at the box office follows.
