The Fate of the Furious remains in the number one spot, grossing another $38.4 million in its second weekend at the box office. Even though it made another decent amount, the eighth film in The Fast and the Furious series, dropped 61% from last week, where it made $98.8 million. That still doesn’t mean anything though since the drop in a film’s second weekend is to be expected and the previous Fast films have made similar drops during their release. Domestically, it has now grossed $163.4 million and $908.4 million globally.
Still in second place is the animated film The Boss Baby with $13 million and has garnered a gross amount $137 million. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast holds the number three spot and it brought in an additional $9.9 million, bringing its domestic total to $471 million. Coming in fourth place is Smurfs: The Lost Village with $4.8 million. Rounding out the top five is the comedy Going in Style with $4.9 million flat and a gross domestic total of $31.6 million over a three week period.
Elsewhere at the box office is Disney’s Born in China in sixth place with $4.79 million. the Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson film, Unforgettable, didn’t even make the top five and grossed only $4.78 million. The Chris Evans movie, Gifted, also grossed $4.5 million, bringing its domestic total to $10.7 million so far. The period drama, The Promise, starring Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac, and Charlotte Le Bon, made a very, very low amount with $4 million. The budget to make the film was a $100 million and so its opening weekend numbers are abysmal. The generally negative critical reception for the film didn’t help.
