Fall Weekend 2 Recap
Hobbs & Shaw Too Fast and Furious for Newcomers
by LesG
posted Sunday, August 11 @ 1:15 pm

Despite a 57.7% drop and a slew of new releases, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw cruised to a repeat win at the top of the box office with a $25.4M take in its second weekend. That gives the spinoff $108.5M through its first 10 days.

Settling for second place, the horror anthology Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark took in a surprisingly solid $20.8M—above most weekend projections and enough to edge out Disney's The Lion King, which earned $20M in its fourth weekend (down 48.1% for a new total of $473.1M and $121.2M for the season).

Opening in fourth place, the live-action Dora and the Lost City of Gold dug up a modest $17M, while fifth place went to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood—down 42% in its third weekend with $11.6M as it cracked the $100M mark and looks well on its way to becoming Tarantino's second-biggest grossing film behind Django Unchained ($162.8M). For the season, Once Upon a Time sits at $59.3M.
