With her debut weekend that brought in a healthy $22 million, Beyonce’s highly anticipated concert film Renaissance helped to breathe fresh life into the box office.

According to Deadline, the total was especially impressive for the first weekend of December, which is generally a slow weekend. The first weekend of December brought in $22 million, which was just behind the weekend record of $24.2 million that Tom Cruise’s The Last Samurai established almost twenty years ago.

For the first time since 2018, the concert was the catalyst for a weekend that brought in a total of $95 million, making it the most successful weekend in December.

In addition, it was disclosed on Sunday that Marvel will cease disclosing international grosses for The Marvels. This indicates that the film will soon finish its stint as the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie with the lowest grossing total of all time, with a current domestic gross of $80.7 million and a worldwide gross of $197 million.
