For Paramount, this is yet another big blow following several other box office flops including Martin Scorsese's Oscar-nominated Silence and last summer's Ben-Hur remake. Although DreamWorks Animation's The Boss Baby fell almost 50% compared to its opening weekend, the animated comedy featuring the voice of Alec Baldwin continued to draw in families despite the competition from newcomer Smurfs: The Lost Village. Paramount's "Ghost in the Shell" finished fifth with an estimated 7.35 million USA dollars in its second weekend. Sufficient buzz and the benefit of voice star Alec Baldwin's popular portrayal of President Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live" likely helped the film succeed, Dergarabedian said.
Fox and DreamWorks Animation's The Boss Baby topped the weekend box office for a second week in a row, once again leading Disney's Beauty and the Beast over the course of what felt like a placeholder weekend as far as new releases are concerned. Your little Smart for a period Phelan played pretty blue this weekend cost of sixteen million dollars to make that third installment of this verse movie franchise how to do. And the families who saw "Lost Village" really liked it, judging by the the strong A grade at CinemaScore.
"Going in Style" collected $12.5 million for Time Warner Inc.'s Warner Bros. and New Line divisions, compared with estimates that ranged from $7.2 million to $11 million.
Iran' Ahmadinejad submits candidacy for upcoming Presidential election
Iran's former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad registered for the upcoming Iranian presidential election on Wednesday. But, he is widely expected to do so, and the reformist camp in Iran has already picked him as its chosen candidate.
Finally, in the fifth spot, there's Ghost in the Shell with $2.1 million, which will actually have to struggle to keep itself in the top five this week. This is very disappointing, especially with a budget of $110 million.
The top 10 is rounded out by Ghost in the Shell ($7.3 million), Power Rangers ($6.2 million), Kong: Skull Island ($5.8 million), Logan ($4.05 million), Get Out ($4.02 million) and The Case for Christ ($3.9 million).
It thus tops a second straight weekend box office chart. Also opening in limited release is Neon's Colossal, which earned $125,809 from four theaters for an impressive $31,452 per-screen average.
