John Wick Takes Down The Avengers At The Box Office

#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.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See MA In DALLAS

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See MA On May 28th at 7:30 PM In DALLAS.

Everybody's welcome at Ma's. But good luck getting home safe.

Oscar winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.

She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don't curse. Never go upstairs. And call her "Ma."

But as Ma's hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma's place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.

Ma also stars Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County) as Maggie's mom, Luke Evans (Beauty …
