LOS ANGELES (Pakistan Point News / Online - 02nd March, 2020) Enough viewers saw "The Invisible Man" this weekend to propel it to the top of the North American box office, with an estimated $28.9 million in ticket sales, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations reported Sunday.That result for the Friday-to-Sunday period more than justified Universal s bet on a remake of the famous H.G.

Jim Carrey stars as the villainous Dr. Robotnik in the video-game-based film.In third place was 20th Century s "The Call of the Wild," starring Harrison Ford, at $13.
2 million. The story is loosely based on the Jack London classic, set in the wilds of Alaska and Canada s Klondike region.Fourth spot went to a new Japanese manga film, "My Hero Academia," from Funimation, at $5.1 million. It tells the story of a young boy, often bullied, who finds his way into a prestigious high school for superheroes-in-training.And in fifth, still strong in its seventh week out, was Sony s "Bad Boys for Life," at $4.3 million. The action comedy, starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, has passed the $400 million mark worldwide.
