James Mangold's Le Mans drama, Ford v. Ferrari, revved up a cold November box office with a $31M premiere—more than tripling the closest runner up and setting a high mark for the director (outside of Marvel-related Wolverine work). With a sold start and excellent reviews and word of mouth,Ford v. Ferrarilooks like a strong Top 10 contender for the Winter season.

Dropping into second-place after its surprise win a weeka go, Midway was down 51% with $8.8M to give it a 10-day total of $35.1M.

Opening in third place with a less-than-heavenly $8.6M, the new Charlie's Angels is looking like an unsuccessful franchise reboot.

Fourth and fifth place went to last weeks No. 3 and 4 films—Playing with Fire and Last Christmas—both of which held well but for modest results (down 33% and 41% for $8.6M and $6.7M).
