Box Office Report For August 2-4

Welcome back everybody to the weekly box office report! As always, each and every Sunday you can expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, the spinoff Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw enters the fray, hoping to dethrone Disney’s hit The Lion King, as well as slow down the second weekend for the ninth film from Quentin Tarantino in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. How did all of the titles do this time around, you might be wondering? Let us take a look right now at just that…

Taking the crown this week was the action spinoff Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. With a haul of $60.8 million, it wasn’t as huge as some of the franchise’s main outings, but still a pretty solid total. A $200 million price tag means there’s some work still to be done, but these films are always hits overseas, so this won’t be the last we’ve heard of the series, or this way of keeping it alive, mark my words.

Relenting the throne in its third week of release was The Lion King, which made $38.2 million, blowing past the $400 million mark. Right now, Disney’s latest smash sits at almost $431 million domestically, furthering the notion that these remakes will continue unabated for the foreseeable future…

At number three was Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the latest movie from Quentin Tarantino. Dropping down to just about $20 million this weekend, the adult tentpole is at $78.8 million stateside, nearing its $90 million budget. It will eventually become just his fourth title to break the $100 million mark, and depending on how it holds over the rest of the summer and into the fall, plus whatever happens with Oscar season, it could wind up his second highest grosser ever, which is really something.

Once again, The Farewell continues to move up the charts, hitting number seven with another $2.4 million. A24 has the independent hit of the year so far, fueling some speculation that this flick could end up an Academy Award player in a bigger way than initially thought of. Stay tuned there, but it’s an interesting possibility, right?

Among indie/limited release titles, Luce took in almost 133K from just five screens, Tel Aviv on Fire made over 50K on eleven screens, The Nightingale grossed around 40K on a pair of screens, while Them That Follow gathered in 15K on a trio of screens. As for flicks only playing on a single screen this weekend, Jay Myself (which featured yours truly moderating Q&A events during some of the screenings) made over 19K, while the Anton Yelchin documentary Love, Antosha made 7K and some change…
