Jumanji was finally pushed out of the top spot by the three new releases of the weekend, with Fifty Shades Freed taking the top spot but with the lowest opening for the trilogy.

Cars 3 took the number one spot over the weekend, despite one of the lowest ever openings for Pixar, while Rough Night tanked and All Eyez On Me and 47 Meters Down were surprisingly strong in their debuts.
The Fate of the Furious stayed on the top of the box office charts and crossed over $1 billion worldwide while limited Indian release Baahubali 2 had the biggest ever Indian film opening in the US of all time and defeated the much higher profile and star studded The Circle.
