  • Who wins in a fight Hobbs & Shaw or Jason Bourne

Although fans reported to be underwhelmed, the second place movie was PG-13 horror film "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, " produced by Guillermo del Toro, coming in with $20.8 million on its opening weekend, according to USA Today.

Walt Disney Pictures' The Lion King slipped to #3 at the domestic box office but still brought in $20 million for a USA total of $473.1 million. With $1.3 billion globally, it's now surpassed "Beauty and the Beast" as Disney's highest-grossing "live-action" release.

Newcomer Dora And The Lost City Of Gold, from Paramount Pictures, found a healthy audience too, earning an estimated $17 million for fourth place. Directed by James Bobin, it stars Isabela Moner, Eugenio Derbez, Madeleine Madden, Jeffrey Wahlberg, Benicio Del Toro, and Danny Trejo.

Quentin Tarantino's latest film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood fell into fifth place, with another $11.6 million domestically, crossing the $100 million mark domestically, making it his fourth film to gross that threshold (Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds, Pulp Fiction). The pet owner tearjerker "The Art of Racing in the Rain", with Milo Ventimiglia, opened in sixth place with $8.1 million. The Fox 2000 property was inherited by Disney in the takeover.

"The Kitchen" also flopped with only $5.5 million, coming in at seventh place and it seems like critics agreed. Based on an obscure Vertigo comic, the film from first time director Andrea Berloff (an Oscar-nominated screenwriter) features both McCarthy and Haddish in more dramatic roles.

Distribution head Jeff Goldstein says Warner Bros. wasn't happy with the results. "The good news is the movie was a fairly low-budgeted film".

With over 10 movies premiering this week audiences definitely had a variety of films to choose from.

Viewership at the movies is down 6.3% this year.

But the marketplace is already looking ahead to the fall and the release of "It Chapter Two". Where available, the latest worldwide numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included.
