A lower-than-expected second weekend for Kingsman: The Golden Circle could lead to a three-way battle for weekend box office supremacy with American Made and IT.
The Hollywood Reporter notes that the Kingsman sequel is coming in a little slower than expected at the weekend box office. Kingsman: The Golden Circle had been expected to win the weekend with a $20 million-plus box office take, however, revised estimates now have the film in a dead heat three-way race with newcomer American Made and September holdover IT.
American Made, the Iran-Contra action biopic starring Tom Cruise, is now projected to take in $16.5 million this weekend after a $6.1 million haul from theaters on Friday night. Meanwhile, IT has become the highest-grossing horror film of all time, and is expected to add to that total over the weekend and could challenge for first place at the box office.
The other new offering this weekend, Sony’s remake of Flatliners, is currently flatlining with less than $6 million this weekend. It had previously been projected to open at $10 million, but the film currently sits at a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, which cannot help its cause.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class, Kick Ass), Kingsman: The Golden Circle stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry and Pedro Pascal.
Kingsman: The Secret Service introduced the world to Kingsman – an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In Kingsman: The Golden Circle, our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy…
Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22, 2017. You can read a review of the film here.
