The Labor Day holiday weekend marks the end of summer in the US, and as such tends to be a quiet one for the movie marketplace as those with time off prefer to spend time outside instead of hitting the multiplex. So while there were two new releases, they were relatively quiet and the top 10 of the box office charts showed just a couple of changes. Angel As Fallen stayed top with a studio-estimated $14.5 million.
That has pushed the third film in the series to $43.6 million in the States so far, with the worldwide release still rolling out. Good Boys remained in second, adding $11.5 million. The Lion King enjoyed a brief holiday boost, jumping back into third from fifth and taking in $9.2 million.
Fourth was Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw, which hung on to its position, while faith-based drama Overcomer slipped to fifth on $7.8 million. Horror comedy thriller Ready Or Not stayed at sixth, adding $6.6 million. Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark earned $6.2 million, scoring a one-place promotion to seventh.
Dora And The Lost City Of Goldalso rose one spot, making £5.7 million in eighth. Spider-Man: Far From Home was re-released with a few additional minutes of footage, and leapt back into the top 10 at ninth and $5.435 million. With the boost from its new version, it should cross the $400 million mark domestically, though it is, of course, already past the billion-dollar mark worldwide and Sony's most successful film to date. Finally, at 10th we find The Angry Birds Movie 2, earning $5.430 million.
Outside the top 10, Don't Let Go was a rare miss for the Blumhouse team, with the high-concept thriller opening at 15th for $3.4 million Though given that it was made for the typically slim $5 million, it's not as serious as other movies. And it did only launch on 922 screens.
