Barbie has been smashing records at the box office and was at the top spot until now.

Since its release Barbie starring Margot Robbie in the lead has been dominating the domestic box office. The Greta Gerwig-directed movie has surpassed Oppenheimer, helmed by acclaimed director, Christopher Nolan. Barbie has beat several major releases like Haunted Mansion and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem. However, Robbie’s reign at the box office ended with the release of DC’s Blue Beetle.

The film, directed by Ángel Manuel Soto, hit theaters last weekend and became the new No. 1 movie in theaters at the domestic box office. It earned $25.4 million at the weekend box office.

Barbie added another $21.5 million to its total and has now amassed a huge $567.3 million in the domestic box office. In the fifth blockbuster week of its release, Margot Robbie’s Barbie marks the first since its July 21 release that the film has not come out on top. Oppenheimer came in third with takings of $10.6 million bringing its domestic total to $285.2 million and $717.8 million globally.

Blue Beetle stars Xolo Mariduea as the title character, and his alter persona, Jaime Reyes, is based on one of DC’s lesser-known superheroes. In the film, Jaime, a recent college graduate, comes home full of hopes for the future only to discover that things have changed somewhat. As he looks for his place in the world, fate steps in when he unintentionally comes across the Scarab, a long-lost artifact of alien biotechnology.
