Fans anticipated more from Shahrukh Khan, but his much-awaited film after the success of Jawan and Pathaan is trailing behind Prabhas's Salaar.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is leading the box office after facing a sluggish start and disappointing preview numbers. Meanwhile, Timothee Chalamet's portrayal of a young Willy Wonka continues to charm families, immersing audiences in chocolate rivers and whimsical wonder. Globally, Prabhas' action epic Salaar delivers a series of adrenaline-pumping stunts. On the flip side, Paw Patrol and Napoleon are right on track. According to studio estimates on Sunday, the superhero sequel from DC and Warner Bros., starring Jason Momoa, generated around $28.1 million in its initial three days of release across 3,706 locations in North America.
