Box Office: ‘Kingsman 2’ Expected To Hold Top Spot

Kingsman Kingsman: The Golden Circle is expected to hold on to first place at the box office this weekend, against newcomers American Made and Flatliners.

The Kingsman sequel is expected to pull in $18 million according to Variety. Kingsman 2 will fend off new challengers American Made, an action biopic about the drug cartel starring Tom Cruise, and Flatliners. American Made is slightly beating expectations and is expected to pull in $16 million on against a $50 million budget.

Meanwhile, Sony’s Flatliners reboot is not expected to fare as well. The film currently sits at a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, and only pulled in $7 million on Thursday night. While it has a moderate $19 million budget, Flatliners is currently sitting at the lower end of weekend expectations.

Finally, IT is expected to once again remain on the box office podium with a third-place finish. The record-breaking horror adaptation will likely hit a domestic haul of $288 million this weekend, a truly unprecedented feat.

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…
