SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE On Digital February 26 & On 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack On March 19

The Fate Of The Furious Still On Top

The most interesting box office news happened beneath the reigning blockbuster behemoth, but nothing could unseat Fast & Furious 8/The Fate Of The Furious from its position at the top of the charts in the States. The latest Fast film earned $19.3 million this weekend, bringing its current American total up to $192.7 million, according to studio estimates.

While that's still behind the fifth, sixth and seventh films in domestic earnings, globally the new one has soared, making $867.6 million outside the US to coast past the $1 billion mark worldwide. We'd expect it to hold on for a few days until Star-Lord and co. arrive with Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, which has already been packing them in here and elsewhere with its typical earlier release tactic.

A much bigger surprise was to be found in the next three movies as the new arrivals landed in unexpected position. Comedy actor Ken Marino's film directing debut, How To Be A Latin Lover, which surrounds Latin American superstar Eugenio Derbez with a solid comedy and supporting cast, posted a second place victory with $12 million. It's a big win for a film in competition with a title that boasts both Emma Watson and Tom Hanks, but more on that one in a moment. Third was Bollywood release Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, itself scoring a big win despite a low key advertising campaign in the States. A massive franchise hit in India, it made $10.1 million in the US.

The two surprises came at the expense of tech thriller The Circle (the aforementioned Watson/Hanks film). With some seriously mixed reviews, it stumbled into fourth place on $9.3 million, despite opening on 3,163 screens compared to Baahubali 2's 425 and Latin Lover's 1,118. The Boss Baby made up the top five with $9 million after five weeks on release.

Beauty And The Beast fell from third to sixth with $6.4 million, while Going In Style was down to seventh on $3.5 million. Smurfs: The Lost Village dropped a few places to eighth, earning $3.31 million and Gifted slipped one place to ninth with $3.3 million. Finally we have stalker thriller Unforgettable, which was pushed to 10th with $2.3 million.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
