The movie has now earned an impressive $98.7 million in the States alone, and passed $142 million worldwide, which is a great result for a movie that cost an estimated $9 million to make (before ads etc). As for Rings, the attempt to breathe new life into the J-horror adaptation was shock-blocked in the final tally, earning $13 million for its first weekend of release.
A Dog's Purpose was bumped to third, adding $10.8 million, while Hidden Figures slipped one place to fourth on $10.1 million. Rounding out the top five, and staying in place for another week is Oscar favorite La La Land, enjoying a boosted screen count and plenty of interest. It took home $7.4 million.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter continued to underperform slightly, falling to sixth with $4.5 million, while Sing stuck its koala claws into seventh, staying in place and making $4.08 million.
At eighth we find Lion, which increased its screen count added $4.06 million for a current US total of $24.7 million. In ninth was new arrival The Space Between Us with the date-shifted blend of sci-fi and teen romance proving a tepid combination, and the film opening to a poor $3.8 million. Finally, at 10th and presumably hanging off the edge of the chart while using a surfboard on top of a ride-on lawnmower, was xXx: Return Of Xander Cage, which made $3.7 million this weekend and is up to $40 million in the States and a little more than $152 million worldwide.
