Universals “Hobbs & Shaw” is set to take the No. 1 spot for a second weekend with $25 million. That total is down 58% from the “Fast & Furious” spinoffs $60 million opening, however the films domestic total is now pushed to an estimated $108 million.
“Hobbs & Shaw” just edged out the top new release of the weekend, Lionsgate/CBS Films “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.” The adaptation of Alvin Schwartzs horror books is now estimated for a $20 million opening from 3,135 screens. “Scary Stories” will also set a new opening weekend record for CBS Films
“Scary Stories” is outperforming Paramounts “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” however “Dora” has performed well critically, which may help the film in the final weeks of summer. The movie has an A on CinemaScore and 82% on Rotten Tomatoes.
