“Aquaman” Finally Defeated by Kevin Hart

Aquaman Finally Defeated By Kevin Hart

“The Upside,” the U.S. remake of the 2011 French global dramedy hit “The Intouchables,” took the top spot at the domestic box office this weekend – finally pushing “Aquaman” off the throne after four weeks. The Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston-led ‘Upside’ snagged $19.6 million at the box office, double all pre-release tracking expectations for the dramatic comedy which received an ‘A’ CinemaScore.

“Aquaman” was not far behind with a further $17.3 million, but more importantly the film crossed the $1 billion mark worldwide, has surpassed “The Dark Knight” and now sits only behind “The Dark Knight Rises” in terms of the global box-office haul for a DC Comics title.

Family film “A Dog’s Way Home” opened in third place domestically with an estimated $11.3 million, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” came in fourth with $9 million and a global haul so far of $302.4 million (fairly evenly split between domestic and international). “Escape Room’ dropped to fifth with $8.9 million, “Mary Poppins Returns’ was in sixth with a further $7.2 million, and “Bumblebee” in seventh with $6.8 million. “On the Basis of Sex” expanded wide to score a further $6.2 million.
