SHAZAM! Review 'It really is a perfect origin story'

#HappyDeathDay Scares The Box Office

Cementing a very successful period for the company, Blumhouse Productions' Happy Death Day blew past the second weekend of Blade Runner 2049 to nab the top spot at the US box office with $26.5 million, according to studio estimates.

It's an impressive initial haul for the time-looping slasher comedy, which was made for the typically thrifty Blumhouse price of a little less than $5 million. And adding in its limited foreign business so far, the movie has made $31.5 million. By contrast, the Blade Runner sequel, which cost an estimated $150 million (not including marketing) earned $15.1 million this weekend after a launch that saw it win the charts but underperform in terms of expectations. The movie is now on $60.5 million in the States.

Jackie Chan's new action movie The Foreigner entered the charts at third with $12.8 million, while It slipped to fourth on $6 million. Rounding out the top five was The Mountain Between Us, which took a tumble and made $5.6 million.

American Made stayed in place at sixth, adding $5.4 million, while Kingsman: The Golden Circle slipped another couple of places to seventh with $5.3 million. The Lego Ninjago Movie tumbled to eighth and $4.3 million, ahead of My Little Pony: The Movie, which doesn't seem to have caught on with cinemagoers, falling from its initial place in fourth to ninth and earning $4 million this weekend. The Pony pic has taken in $15.5 million from American audiences so far. Victoria & Abdul fell to 10th place, making $3.1 million.

Opening outside the top 10 were Marshall with $3 million in 11th and, more disappointingly given its higher screen count, Professor Marston And The Wonder Women, which took in $737,000 at 14th.
