The first “Fast & Furious” spinoff raced into theaters this weekend, and while the film failed to top the franchise charts, it did open at number one. “Hobbs & Shaw” was the only major release this weekend, so the box office charts didn’t see a lot of movement. Disney’s “The Lion King,” Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” and “Hobbs and Shaw” created a backlog of new releases over the past few weeks, and five new movies are set to premiere next weekend.
“Hobbs & Shaw” brought in $60.8M across 4,253 locations this week to top the domestic box office. David Leitch directed “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” which stars Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Eddie Marsan, Vanessa Kirby, and Helen Mirren. With nine films in the franchise, the $60M opening gives “Hobbs & Shaw” the sixth-highest domestic debut. The film’s opening weekend ranks below the original’s $70.9M opening weekend and above the $50.4M debut from “2 Fast 2 Furious.”
The new release pushed “The Lion King” down to second place overall, but the film still made $38.2M this week across 4,802 locations. The Disney live-action adaptation currently sits with a $430.8M domestic total after three weeks. Jon Favreau directed “The Lion King,” and the movie features the voice talents of Donald Glover, James Earl Jones, Beyonce Knowles, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, John Oliver, Seth Rogen, Keegan-Michael Key, Eric André, and Billy Eichner.
Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” dropped a spot this week, earning $20M across 3,659 locations. Now in its second week in theaters, the movie has a $78.9M domestic total. Quentin Tarantino wrote and directed “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” and the film features Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Dakota Fanning, Al Pacino, Harley Quinn Smith, Kurt Russell, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch, Michael Madsen, and Rumer Willis.
Sony also took fourth place on the domestic charts after “Spider-Man: Far From Home” grossed another $7.75M this weekend. The film’s five-week total currently sits at $360.3M domestically. Jon Watts directed “Spider-Man Far From Home,” which stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Jon Favreau, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Disney took fifth place with “Toy Story 4,” which made another $7.1M this weekend. Now in its seventh week in theaters, the new Toy Story installment has a $410M domestic total. Josh Cooley directed “Toy Story 4,” which features the voice talents of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Joan Cusack, Bonnie Hunt, and Kristen Schaal.
There will be several new movies to choose from next weekend. Milo Ventimiglia’s “The Art of Racing in the Rain” opens against “Brian Banks,” “The Kitchen,” “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” and “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.”
