The Nerazzurri went seven points clear at the top of the standings on Sunday thanks to a 3-0 win over Genoa, extending their unbeaten league run to eight games. “This season I think the disappointment of going out of the Champions League in an undeserved way made us look inside ourselves and understand that we needed to raise the level of everything to try and be more competitive.” Conte led Inter to second place in his debut season as coach last year, finishing one point behind Juventus as the Turin club clinched a ninth consecutive title.

Warner Bros. has done it again. Though the animated/live-action hybrid “Tom & Jerry” was released in both theaters and on HBO Max this weekend, it joined “Wonder Woman 1984” as only the second film to earn an opening weekend of $10 million since the start of the pandemic with a $13.7 million opening from 2,475 screens. By comparison, Universal/DreamWorks’ “The Croods: A New Age,” which has been persevering for months at the box office, earned a 3-day opening of $9.7 million back on Thanksgiving weekend. That sequel earned $1.2 million this weekend to bring its domestic total to $52.3 million after 14 weekends. While “Tom & Jerry” will face competition for family audiences from Disney’s “Raya and the Last Dragon,” which will open in both theaters and as a premium Disney+ offering next weekend, Warner Bros. will hope to follow the same path as “Croods”; legging out over the spring as audiences regain confidence in returning to cinemas and states begin loosening restrictions. Theaters in New York City are set to reopen with 25% audience capacity restrictions next weekend, and there’s hopes that a similar reopening can take place in Los Angeles sometime in March. Also Read: NYC Movie Theaters Cleared to Reopen Next Month at 25% Capacity But just as hopes of reopening theaters were derailed last fall, another surge of COVID-19 infections could easily reverse this positive trend. Epidemiologists have warned that more infectious variants of the virus could easily erase the sharp decline in cases and deaths seen over the past six weeks and point to a recent leveling off in that decline as a sign that those variants are beginning to spread. If health experts’ worst fears prove true and cases begin to rapidly rise again in March or April, cinemas could once again be forced back into closing. Aside from “Tom & Jerry” and “Croods,” no other films this weekend earned more than $1 million. Warner Bros.’ “The Little Things” is in third with an estimated $925,000 this weekend for a total of $12.9 million after five weekends. “Wonder Woman 1984” is in fourth with $710,000 and a $43.6 million total after 10 weekends, and Open Road’s “The Marksman” completes the top 5 with $680,000 and a $12.3 million opening after seven weekends.
