Weekend Box Office: ‘The Fate of the Furious’ Repeats #1 Spot

The Fate Of The Furious

The top three films remain the same this weekend with Universal’s The Fate of the Furious on top of the domestic box office, grossing $38.7 million in its second weekend to bring its total to $163.6 million.

A global cum now stands at $908.4 million, and there’s a good chance that the F. Gary Gray-directed film (made for $250 million) will cross the $1 billion mark next weekend, even with the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2.

In new releases, Disney’s nature documentary Born in China bested all newcomers. The doc for kids earned a solid $5 million from 1,508 theaters to place No. 4.

Warner Bros.‘ female-centric thriller, Unforgettable clocked in at #7 with totally forgettable numbers. Starring Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson, it debuted to a paltry $4.8 million from 2,417 locations.

Open Road’s The Promise, the Armenian genocide drama  with Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac, scored $4 million in the ninth spot. Made for $90 million, it was somehow released on 2,251 screens. Probably the worst opening of the year so far.

Amazon and Bleecker Street’s The Lost City of Z expanded into a total of 614 theaters in its second weekend. The James Gray adventure film, starring Charlie Hunnam, grossed $2.1 million to place No. 10.

Meanwhile, Ben Wheatley’s action-comedy Free Fire and found-footage thriller Phoenix Forgotten, had smaller footprints then their brethren but still disappointed — Free Fire debuted with just $1 million from 1,070 theaters, while Phoenix Forgotten opened to $2 million from 1,952 theaters.
