The “Fast and Furious” spin-off “Hobbs & Shaw” will stay on top of the box-office this weekend, taking in a further $7 million on Friday and is headed for a projected $25 million second weekend haul.
Newcomer “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” took in a larger $8.7 million in Friday ticket sales, but the drop-off is expected to be higher with the Lionsgate, CBS Films and eOne film on track for a $20 million total by weekend’s end.
Paramount’s “Dora and the Lost City of Gold” is headed for an estimated $17.5 million opening weekend and is being boosted by some surprisingly strong reviews. Less successful is “The Kitchen,” the mob wives drama with Melissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish that has been massively panned and is only slated to take in $5.2 million over the weekend.
Also opening this weekend is the uplifting “The Art of Racing in the Rain” starring the voice of Kevin Costner and Milo Ventimiglia which is reportedly going for an estimated $7 million come Sunday.
