"Lisa Frankenstein," a horror comedy written by Diablo Cody, debuted in second place at the North American box office, earning $3.8 million on a slow Super Bowl weekend.

The film, set in the 1980s, is a teenage take on Mary Shelley's classic tale and marks the directorial debut of Zelda Williams, daughter of Robin Williams.

"Argylle," a spy thriller by Matthew Vaughn, secured first place with $6.5 million, making it the winner for the weekend despite a relatively low box office figure.

"Argylle" is Apple's first major theatrical flop, with a $200 million production cost and a domestic total of $28.8 million in two weekends.

Despite mixed to negative reviews (49% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes), "Lisa Frankenstein" had a modest production budget of $13 million.

The audience for "Lisa Frankenstein" was predominantly female (61%) and under the age of 35 (71%), according to exit data.

The overall box office for the weekend was notably low, around $40 million, down nearly 25% from the previous year, contributing to the slowest weekend of the year to date.

Analysts attribute the low box office figures to various factors, including the unique attention on the Super Bowl, with the senior media analyst for Comscore noting that it is the lowest-grossing Super Bowl weekend in the modern era.
