Saturday Update: Sony reports that Bad Boys for Life added $8.925 million on Friday, bringing its domestic cume to $95.6 million through eight days of play. The breakout sequel continues to draw strong turnout after its excellent holiday weekend start and could top $30 million for its sophomore frame this weekend.





1917 claimed second place for Universal yesterday with another $4.02 million. The WWI epic regained some premium screens this weekend and now stands at $92.1 million domestically. We’re projecting a $14.3 million third weekend in wide release.





STX’s The Gentlemen debuted in third place on Friday with $3.72 million, in the middle of our expected range entering the weekend. That figure bests the $3.65 million first day of Cold Pursuit last year and sets the Guy Ritchie film on course for an opening weekend north of $10 million.





In fourth place, Dolittle tacked on $2.74 million to begin its second weekend. The family film now stands at $34.9 million stateside after eight days, eyeing a $13 million sophomore frame.





Capping off the top five, The Turning debuted to $2.51 million on Friday — comparable to Underwater‘s $2.5 million earlier this month. We’re projecting around $6.9 million for the overall debut weekend.





Meanwhile, Jumanji: The Next Level is again showing its staying power with another $1.7 million earned on Friday — now claiming $277.3 million domestically — and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker added $1.26 million as it looks to clear the $500 million domestic threshold before the end of Sunday.

Friday Report: STX and Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen got off to a solid start with $725K from last night’s opening shows at 1,885 locations domestically, setting the stage for a healthy debut weekend. The R-rated crime comedy registered ahead of last year’s Cold Pursuit ($540K) and just behind The Foreigner‘s $775K back in autumn 2017.





Meanwhile, Universal’s The Turning earned $425K from its 7pm start at 2,220 locations last night. That figure comes in just south of Underwater ($500K) earlier this month and slightly better than The Prodigy ($350K) one year ago.





As covered in our earlier forecast for the weekend, Bad Boys for Life will easily retain the top spot again this weekend after its second-best-ever MLK opening one frame ago. Holdovers 1917 and Dolittle should fill out the top three ahead of this weekend’s wide openers, though The Gentlemen could be a dark horse candidate to challenge for third place if it breaks out beyond expectations after Thursday night.





More updates to follow throughout the weekend.


The post Weekend Box Office Estimates: <em>Bad Boys for Life</em> Targets $30M+ Second Frame; <em>1917</em> & <em>Dolittle</em> Hold Well; <em>The Gentlemen</em> Scores $10M+ Debut appeared first on Boxoffice.
