Saturday Update: Universal, Pearl Studio, and DreamWorks Animation’s Abominable is on track to finish in first place this weekend with an estimated $20 million+ debut, in line with pre-release expectations. The well-reviewed original film earned $5.69 million on opening day Friday, comparable to the $6.43 million start by Warner Bros.’ Smallfoot one year ago this month, as well as the $5.79 million and $5.77 million first days by the same studio’s LEGO Ninjago Movie and Storks, respectively.





Downton Abbey is on course for a second place finish in its sophomore frame as it posted another $4.38 million on Friday, a to-be-expected sharp drop of 68 percent from opening day last week. The hit television-to-cinema release has earned a strong $48.4 million in just eight days of domestic play as it targets a $14 million+ weekend.





Hustlers continued its strong play with another $3.66 million on Friday, off just 33 percent from the same day last week. With $72.8 million in the domestic bank through 15 days, its third frame is looking to tally around $11.6 million.





Ad Astra claimed fourth place with $2.985 million yesterday, down 58 percent from opening day last week. The Brad Pitt film’s eight-day stateside haul stands at $28.4 million as it looks toward a $10.2 million sophomore weekend.





Capping off the top five, It: Chapter Two eased 41 percent from last Friday to $2.85 million yesterday. The horror sequel has earned a healthy $186.4 million domestically thus far. Look for a weekend take around $10 million.





Early weekend estimates are below. Studio updated estimates to follow on Sunday.
