Hobbs & Shaw Remains #1, Scary Stories Exceeds Expectations

Universal’s Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw held onto the #1 spot at the domestic box office, but dropping 57.7% and bringing in $25.4 million for a US total of $108.5 million. Internationally the film brought in $60.8 million for an international total of $224 million and a worldwide total of $332 million. Though not a bad overall haul for the film, it sits much lower than the recent entries in the main Fast & Furious franchise with the previous entry in the series, The Fate of the Furious, sitting at $1.2 billion worldwide. Directed by David Leitch, the film stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, alongside Idris Elba and Vanessa Kirby.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark from Lionsgate, CBS Films, and eOne opened in second place, bringing in an estimated $20.8 million and exceeding expectations from the studio. It’s unclear how well the film will do overseas however, as the property very seldom crossed over into other countries from America. Based on the hit children’s books, the film was Directed by André Øvredal and produced by Guillermo del Toro.

Walt Disney Pictures’ The Lion King slipped to #3 at the domestic box office but still brought in $20 million for a US total of $473.1 million. Internationally the film brought in $51.4 million for an international total of $861.5 million and a global total of $1.334 billion. The film has just passed Star Wars: The Last Jedi worldwide, making it the #12 highest grossing movie of all time, and putting it in a prime position to crack the top 10 highest grossing movies ever.

Paramount Pictures’ Dora and the Lost City of Gold, the live-action adaptation of the children’s TV series, opened in fourth place, bringing in an estimated $17 million. Directed by James Bobin, it stars Isabela Moner, Eugenio Derbez, Madeleine Madden, Jeffrey Wahlberg, Benicio Del Toro, and Danny Trejo.

Quentin Tarantino’s latest film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood fell into fifth place, with another $11.6 million domestically, crossing the $100 million mark domestically, making it his fourth film to gross that threshold (Django UnchainedInglourious BasterdsPulp Fiction).

Elsewhere at the box office:

Disney’s latest release of a 20th Century Fox film debuted with The Art of Racing in the Rain opened with $8.1 million domestically.

Warner Bros. and New Line’s The Kitchen bombed with a domestic opening of $5.5 million. The adaptation was produced on a reported budget of $37 million.
