Although somewhat below the franchise average, the $60.8 million taken in by Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw was good enough to win the weekend, marking the first time in nearly two months that the top slot hasn’t been occupied by either a Marvel or a Disney movie. Of the nine Fast movies to date, Hobbs & Shaw is the sixth biggest, coming in ahead of the first three films in the series — and almost beating Tokyo Drift’s entire gross in one weekend!
Falling back into second place is The Lion King. With another $38.2 million this weekend, it passes Captain Marvel as the year’s second-biggest movie (behind, of course, Avengers: Endgame) with $430.8 million in domestic receipts.
Despite a larger-than-expected 51% drop from its first week, Quentin Tarantino’s critically acclaimed drama Once Upon a Time In Hollywood still comes in third place with $20 million. Now, the question is whether Hollywood will have the legs to beat Django Unchained $162.8 million and become Tarantino’s best-grossing movie ever.
Spider-Man: Far From Home grabbed the #4 position in its fifth week, with $7.7 million. It’s also pushed past Aladdin this week to become the year’s fifth-biggest film.
After seven weeks, Toy Story 4 still has a lot of friends, remaining in the Top 5 with a weekend total of $7.1 million.
With Sunday’s totals yet to be counted, Yesterday and The Farewell are in a tight race for the #6 spot, both with approximately $2.4 million. Wherever it ends up, it’s an impressive increase for The Farewell, which added an additional 274 theaters this week. At Number Ate (get it?) is Crawl with $2.1 million, Aladdin comes in ninth with $2 million, and Annabelle 3 rounds out the Top 10 with $875K.
