Saturday Update: Lionsgate reports this morning that Angel Has Fallen came in slightly ahead of expectations with an estimated $7.9 million opening day Friday, inclusive of Thursday’s $1.5 million sneaks. That Friday figure beats its predecessor’s $7.54 million first day, although that debuted in spring 2016. Beating tracking that had cited a low-to-mid teen millions weekend debut, we’re projecting an opening north of $20 million at this stage.





Good Boys eased 59 percent from its first day last week to $3.44 million yesterday, giving it a healthy sum of $33.75 million after eight days domestically. Look for a second place finish around $10.8 million or higher.





Overcomer marks Sony’s latest faith-based success with a $3.03 million first day take (including Thursday evening), coming in just north of When the Game Stands Tall‘s $2.95 million first day in August 2014. The studio projects an $8.2 million opening frame.





Ready or Not continued to come in ahead of expectations yesterday with another $2.415 million take, bringing its three-day domestic tally to $5.44 million. A three-day weekend in the realm of $7.4 million appears likely, which would give the pic a five-day start of $10.4 million.





Holdover-wise, The Lion King capped the top five with another $2.198 million and an updated $504.7 million domestic cume. Right behind it, Hobbs & Shaw added $2.15 million for an updated $141.7 million domestic tally.





Domestic weekend estimates are listed below the Hobbs & Shaw international report.





Hobbs & Shaw Overseas & China Update





Hobbs bowed to a strong $39.4 million in China on Friday, setting it on course for a first place debut with a studio projection of $106 million for the weekend.





In China, that would represent the biggest August opening ever, the second biggest Hollywood opening of 2019 (trailing just Avengers: Endgame and topping Spider-Man: Far from Home), the third best Friday-Sunday take of 2019 overall (behind Wandering Earth and Endgame), and the second best opening in the Fast & Furious franchise behind The Fate of the Furious (which still holds China’s all-time Friday-Sunday weekend record).





Other studio notes on Hobbs & Shaw:





– Universal’s fifth-highest-grossing global opening ever (only behind The Fate of the Furious, Jurassic World, Furious 7 and Fifty Shades of Grey)

– The biggest global opening of 2019 for a non-Disney, non-superhero film

– The biggest domestic opening of the summer for a non-Disney, non-superhero film


– The biggest opening outside of the main Fast & Furious franchise for stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham

International highlights by market:

– The biggest opening weekend for the franchise in Korea

– The biggest opening in the franchise for the Others Middle East market

– The biggest opening weekend for a Universal film in Ukraine
 
With this weekend’s grosses, the international Fast & Furious franchise total surpasses $4 billion, and brings the global gross to more than $5.6 billion.
 
Top five international markets after China (estimated through Saturday):
 
1.         Japan – $24.9 million

2.         UK $- 21.2 million

3.         Korea – $20.7 million

4.         Russia – $17.9 million

5.         Mexico – $16.4 million
 
The final international territory to open is Greece on August 29.
