Tuesday Update:  Lionsgate’s action sequel Angel Has Fallen repeated atop the box office with $15.3M over the Friday-to-Monday four-day Labor Day weekend.


As expected with no new major wide releases, the box office had one of its worst weekends of the year.


“Falling” by -28.1% on its second weekend (or -44.8% if only looking at the normal three-day weekend), Angel held better than its two predecessors: Olympus Has Fallen at -53.4% or London Has Fallen at -49.9%.


Elsewhere at the box office:



Universal’s comedy Good Boys rose +4.8% to $12.1M, for the runner-up spot.
Disney’s The Lion King rose +15.9% to $9.3M, for third place. The film spends a seventh weekend in the top five, making it the fourth film of 2019 to do so, along with Toy Story 4, Aladdin, and Captain Marvel.
Two releases more than doubled their grosses from last weekend, on account of a Labor Day theater expansion. Sony’s Spider-Man: Far From Home swung into the top 10 for the first time in three weeks, coming in 10th place with $5.6M. Toy Story 4 also earned $3.4M.

Comparisons


Total box office this extended weekend was $119.6M.


That’s +10.0% above last weekend — although the comparison is a bit skewed because last weekend didn’t include Monday — but -7.5% below this same extended weekend last year, when Crazy Rich Asians led for a third frame with $28.5M.


Year-to-date box office stands at $7.80B. That’s -6.5% behind this same date last year, down from -6.4% after last weekend.

Monday Update: The box office expectedly tallied its second-worst weekend of the year over the Labor Day frame, with studios opting to release exactly zero major new wide releases as the summer box office rolls to a close. That allowed Lionsgate’s Angel Has Fallen to repeat in the top spot with an estimated $11.5 million over the three-day period and a projected $14.5 million over the four-day, while holdovers like Good Boys, The Lion King and Hobbs & Shaw had a little more room to breathe in advance of It: Chapter Two’s sure-to-be-explosive debut next weekend.


After debuting to a solid $21.3 million last weekend, Angel Has Fallen held well in its sophomore frame, dropping roughly 46% from its opening three-day frame to give the Gerard Butler actioner $43.6 million through Monday. The threequel is currently edging out its predecessor London Has Fallen, which had $39 million through the end of its second three-day weekend versus $40.7 million for Angel through Sunday.


Second place went to Universal’s Good Boys, which dropped just 21% to take in an estimated $9.1 million in its third frame and a projected $11.5 million over the four-day weekend. That’s a superb hold for the R-rated comedy, which has been benefitting from strong word-of-mouth. It now has an impressive $58.6 million total.


Disney’s The Lion King rose two spots to third place in its seventh weekend, bringing in an estimated $6.7 million over the three-day period and a projected $9.2 million through Monday. With $521 million to date, the Disney blockbuster is currently the 13th highest-grossing film of all time domestically–putting it just shy of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which finished its North American run with $532.1 million.


Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw took in an estimated $6.2 million in fourth place over the three-day weekend (and a projected $8 million over the four-day), giving the Universal action spinoff $158.8 million in North America to date. It now sits at No. 5 on the list of highest-grossing installments in the long-running franchise, having surpassed 2009’s Fast and Furious ($155 million total) not adjusting for inflation.


Taking fifth was last weekend’s faith-based sleeper Overcomer, which grossed an estimated $5.7 million over the three-day weekend and a projected $7.8 million four-day. That represents a drop of just 29% for the Sony/Affirm release, which opened to a solid $8.1 million last weekend on just over 1,700 screens.


In sixth place, the well-reviewed Ready Or Not took in an estimated $5.6 million in its second weekend (and a projected $6.6 million over the four-day). That’s a dip of just 30% for the Disney-released Fox Searchlight title, which seems to have benefitted from good word-of-mouth following a so-so $8 million opening last weekend. The R-rated horror release has taken in $21.1 million to date, though it will likely take a major hit next weekend with the release of It: Chapter Two.


Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark took in an estimated $5 million over the three-day period and a projected $6.2 million over the four-day, pushing the Lionsgate/CBS Films release to seventh place and a healthy $58.8 million through the end of its fourth weekend. 


Expanding to 3,162 theaters this weekend with four minutes of additional footage was Sony’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, which finished in eighth place with an estimated $4.2 million over the three-day frame and a projected $5.4 million over the four-day. That would give the MCU installment $385.8 million in North America, where it currently stands as the second highest-grossing Spider-Man film of all time not adjusting for inflation. Notably, Far From Home was the crown jewel in a very good season for Sony, which is poised to take second place in summer market share for the first time since 2010 with a projected $700 million in domestic grosses.


In ninth, Paramount’s Dora and the Lost City of Gold took in an estimated $4.14 million Friday-Sunday and a projected $5.7 million over the four-day frame for $51.1 million to date, while tenth place went to Sony’s The Angry Birds Movie 2, which brought in an estimated $4.11 million over the three-day frame and a projected $5.4 million over the four-day. That would give the animated sequel a disappointing $35.2 million to date.


Limited Release:


Debuting on 371 screens, Lionsgate/Pantelion’s Spanish-language rom-com Tod@s Caen debuted with an estimated $1.08 million and a projected $1.35 million over the four-day frame.


Amazon Studios’ Brittany Runs a Marathon expanded to 49 screens in its sophomore frame and brought in an estimated $414K over the three-day frame, bringing its total to $639K through Sunday.


Overseas Update:


Hobbs & Shaw took in an estimated $39.1 million overseas this weekend (including a second weekend in China of $27.9 million), bringing its international total to $525.3 million and its global cume to a healthy $684.2 million. Its total in China stands at $166 million to date.


With another $20.6 million overseas this weekend, the worldwide total for Disney’s The Lion King has risen to $1.562 billion, surpassing both Furious 7 ($1.516 billion) and The Avengers ($1.519 billion) to become the seventh highest-grossing movie of all time globally. Internationally, the remake also stands at No. 7 on the all-time list with $1.041 billion, having exceeded the gross of both Fate of the Furious ($1.01 billion) and Jurassic World ($1.019 billion).
