Fifty Shades Climax

Universal‘s Fifty Shades climax, Fifty Shades Freed, locks up top spot this weekeend “because none of us are having enough sex, probably.”

Compared to the previous two films, the erotic-thriller sequel debuted with a weak $38.8 million in North America, receiving a B+ CinemaScore from audiences.

Opening in second place domestically was Sony’s CG and live-action hybrid Peter Rabbit, with a total of $25 million. The film received an A-CinemaScore from moviegoers.

Clint Eastwood’s new terrorism film The 15:17 to Paris (Roadshow Entertainment/Warner Bros.) placed third with a muted $12.6 million. The apparently not very good movie generated a B- CinemaScore.

Sony Pictures’ Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle fell to fourth place with $9.8 million and The Greatest Showman (20th Century Fox) rounded out the top five domestically with $6.4 million.
