The Hitman’s Bodyguard (Lionsgate) gets a hat-trick in a historically slow Labor Day weekend, earning $10.2 million.
The Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson mismatched buddy comedy is looking strong thus far with an extra $2 million or so coming in over the Monday holiday. Bodyguard should be able to hit at least $70 million domestically, which isn’t too bad for an R-rated movie that only cost $30 million.
Lionsgate’s action-comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard beat out three new movies to take the top spot in one of the worst weekend in years. Many people in the U.S. turned their attention instead to Hurricane Harvey and Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor match.
The Ryan Reynolds/Samuel L. Jackson action caper earned an estimated $10 million in ticket sales with a not-great 53 percent drop from last weekend’s opening weekend win.
Lionsgate’s action-comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard, starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, debuted in first place with $21.6 million from 3,377 theaters, while another action flick, Logan Lucky (Bleecker Street), sputtered on arrival with $8 million.
Also starring Gary Oldman and Salma Hayek, the R-rated film which comes courtesy of director Patrick Hughes, received a B+ CinemaScore from audiences and was made for $29 million.
Lionsgate has released the second official U.S. trailer for Patrick Hughes’ The Hitman’s Bodyguard on Jimmy Kimmel Live, featuring more Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson humor on their journey from England to Netherlands, as well as our first looks at Gary Oldman and Elodie Yung.
The upcoming action comedy sees Jackson as the hitman of the title, set to testify against Oldman’s merciless Eastern European dictator [sic] so Oldman sends a truckload of henchmen to off him.
Deadpool is protecting Nick Fury in a non-superhero movie! Lionsgate Summit Entertainment has released the new red band trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, the upcoming action comedy starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson. The chemistry seems to be there between Reynolds and Jackson, even though I was expecting the tone to be a bit more serious.
