Universal Pictures’ Good Boys slipped into second place but dipped just 45% and brought in $11.75 million over the weekend, giving it a domestic total of $42 million. Internationally the comedy has brought in $6.9 million for a worldwide total of $49 million. Produced on a reported budget of $20 million, the comedy is already a bona fide hit for the studio. Directed by Gene Stupnitsky, Good Boys stars  Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams and Brady Noon

The faith based film Overcomer opened in third place, despite only playing on 1700 screens nationwide, bringing in an estimated $8.2 million. Hailing from the filmmakers behind War Room, Courageous, and Fireproof, and produced on a reported budget of $5 million, the film is on its way to becoming a modest hit and serve as counter programming through the Labor Day holiday.

Walt Disney Pictures’ The Lion King slipped into fourth place but still managed to haul in $8.2 million domestically for a US total of $510.6 million. Internationally the film brought in $30 million for an international total of $997.9 million and a global total of $1.508 billion.
