'Lisa Frankenstein' Stumbles at North American Box Office During Super Bowl Weekend

'Lisa Frankenstein,' a horror comedy by Diablo Cody, earned $3.8 million, ranking second at the North American box office on a slow Super Bowl weekend.

Despite its modest $13 million production budget, 'Lisa Frankenstein' failed to draw significant audiences, earning only $3.8 million on its opening weekend, trailing behind 'Argylle.' The film, a 1980s teenage riff on Mary Shelley's classic featuring Kathryn Newton and Cole Sprouse, received mixed to negative reviews. It represents the directorial debut of Zelda Williams. The weekend's overall box office performance was one of the slowest of the year, affected not just by the Super Bowl but also by broader trends, hinting at a subdued interest until the release of 'Dune: Part Two' in March.
