Weekend Box Office: Aug 9 - Aug 11, 2019
Although dropping almost 58% from last week's opening weekend 'Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw' did repeat as the #1 movie at the Box Office! We predicted last week the F&F spin-off starring Dwayne Johnson & Jason Statham would repeat but it would be close with the new 'Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark' and that's exactly what did happen.
'Hobbs & Shaw' was #1 this past weekend with $25.2M and close behind opening in 2nd place with $20.9M was in fact 'Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark', the new horror with a story in the film written and produced by Guillermo del Toro. Summer Box Office Juggernaut 'The Lion King' came in 3rd place with $20.2M this past weekend! At the time of this post it now has a worldwide box office total of over $1.343B in just 26 days! Rounding out the top spots this past weekend in 4th place with $17.4M was a new film debuting 'Dora and the Lost City of Gold' & in 5th place with $11.6M was 'Once Upon a Time In Hollywood'. The new Quentin Tarantino film has just hit $100M domestically in only 3 weeks!
There are a few movies opening in theatres this weekend including the new Shark Thriller '47 Meters Down: Uncaged', as well as the new Comedy 'Good Boys' from the creative team/producers behind the classic 'Superbad'! This looks really funny, could literally be the next 'Superbad', you can watch the trailer on our site by clicking here! All that being said, our official prediction for the new #1 movie at the Box Office this coming weekend will be the sequel 'The Angry Birds Movie 2'! It's opening in 3,869 theatres and getting a jump start on other films with a Wed opening instead of Friday so it will easily be the new #1 Movie after this weekend!
