Weekend Box Office: Aug 2 - Aug 4, 2019
Last week we predicted 'Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw' would dethrone 'The Lion King' as the #1 movie at the Box Office and of course we called it correctly! This also might be the first #1 movie where both leading men have no hair? Gives all of us shaved head guys hope! Am I right? Lol!
'Hobbs & Shaw' starring box office champ Dwayne Johnson & the always bad-ass Jason Statham was your top movie at the Box Office with an opening weekend of $60M! Can't wait to see this one, looks like an action-packed fun ride with some humour and cool villain played by Idris Elba. In 2nd place this past weekend with $38.5M was 'The Lion King', and after only 18 days in theatres has already grossed $1.2B worldwide! Just insane money, in another long line of box office hits this year from parent company Disney! In 3rd place was the new Quentin Tarantino film 'Once Upon a Time In Hollywood' with $20M & in 4th place with $7.9M was 'Spider-Man: Far from Home'! Rounding out the top spots in 5th place was 'Toy Story 4' with $7.3M and at the time of the post has earned just over $960M worldwide!
There are a few movies opening in theatres this weekend including 'The Art of Racing in the Rain' starring Milo Ventimiglia as race car driver Denny Swift & Kevin Costner as the voice of his Golden Retriever "Enzo". Also opening this weekend is a live-action version of 'Dora and the Lost City of Gold' & 'Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark' with a story written and produced by Guillermo del Toro. As for our prediction, 'Dora' has a chance being in 3,500 theatres and people always come out for horror so 'Scary Stories' also has a shot, however Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson puts butts in seats! So our official prediction is that 'Hobbs & Shaw' will repeat as your #1 movie at the Box Office after this coming Weekend!
