Gerard Butler’s *Blank* Has Fallen franchise got it’s first #1 opening with the third entry, Angel Has Fallen, while Hobbs & Shaw exploded into China with the biggest August opening ever there.
Good Boys was the surprise winner at the box office, toppling Hobbs & Shaw and becoming only the third original film of 2019 to top the box office.
The Lion King remained on top of the box office for its second weekend out but had the biggest drop from the opening weekend for the recent Disney remakes while Tarantino had his biggest opening ever with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
The Lion King dominated the box office, shattering all kinds of records, including biggest July opening of all time and the widest release ever while Avengers: Endgame finally toppled Avatar and is now the highest-grossing film of all time.
Spider-Man: Far From Home remained at the top of the box office for another weekend, putting it just shy of $850 million worldwide for two weeks out while Crawl defeated Stuber in the battle of the R rated new releases.
Spider-Man ably followed up the juggernaut that was Avengers: Endgame with a record-shattering six-day opening over the July 4th holiday weekend while Midsommar opened to around half as much as Ari Aster’s last film, Hereditary.
Toy Story 4 opened with the highest opening ever for the series but did not meet Disney’s absurdly inflated expectations while the new Child’s Play also did not meet its modest expectations and Luc Besson’s latest didn’t even open in the top 10.
Another weekend of underperformance as Secret Life of Pets 2, despite taking the top spot, was nowhere near the opening of its predecessor while Dark Phoenix ended the Fox X-Men franchise with its lowest opening ever.
Godzilla took over the box office but it was a much lower opening than expected and nowhere near its 2014 predecessor while Rocketman and Ma had solid debuts and Endgame is a hair’s breadth away from taking the All-Time record from Avatar.
Endgame managed to hold off all the new releases to stay on top for the third weekend in a row as it closes in on Avatar worldwide but Detective Pikachu almost managed to top it with the biggest opening ever for a video game based movie.
