HOLLYWOOD—There were a few surprises at the box-office over the weekend, as a raunchy comedy involving little boys dazzled audiences at theaters. The comedy, “Good Boys” starring Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams and Brady Noon rose to the top spot with an impressive $21 million haul. Not bad for a flick that is rated R and pushes the boundaries for laughs.
Dropping to second place was the action-adventure, “Hobbs & Shaw” with just over $14 million. After three weeks in theaters, the Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham starrer has amounted over $133 million at the domestic box-office. “The Lion King” dropped to third place with $11.9 million, where its cumulative tally is just mere millions from reaching $500 million at the domestic box-office.
The sequel “Angry Birds 2” earned $10.5 million over the weekend for fourth place, earning a total of $16.2 million since its release on Wednesday. Rounding out the top five was the horror flick “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark with $10 million, bringing its tally to over $40 million. The weekend’s other new release, “47 Meters Uncaged” earned $9 million to land in sixth place.
This weekend sees the release of the new flicks “Ready or Not,” which is a mystery where a family indulges in killing one another. There is also the third installment in the Gerard Butler action-thriller, “Angel Has Fallen.” The flick precedes “Olympus Has Fallen” and “London Has Fallen.”
