Two new films hit theatres this weekend, but neither were able to make much of dent at the box office.
Bad Boys For Life held on to the top spot for the second weekend in a row, bringing in an estimated $34 million. That’s just a 45% drop week to week, a strong showing for a franchise film. The movie currently sits at $120 million in North America.
As for the rest of the top five, 1917 was in second place with $15.8 million, as it crossed the $100 million mark. Dolittle was in third place with $12.5 million, while Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen has a soft debut with $11 million to arrive put in fourth place. Jumanji: The Next Level closed things out in fifth place with $7.9 million.
Meanwhile, for those keeping score, the poorly received horror film The Turning debut in sixth with $7.3 million.
So, to recap, here were our predictions:
1) Bad Boys For Life – $28 million
2) Dolittle – $14 million
3) 1917 – $12 million
4) The Turning – $11 million
5) The Gentlemen – $9 million
