Monday Morning Box Office Report: Ford v Ferrari Takes the Checkered Flag, Charlie’s Angels Bombs


It wasn’t much of a race at the box office over the weekend as Ford v Ferrari lapped the competition for an easy win with a $31 million debut. That’s more than Ron Howard’s Rush made in its entire theatrical run back in 2013, although FvF had more star power and obviously a more U.S.-centric focus. In second place, Roland Emmerich’s Midway managed to hold off the Charlie’s Angels reboot in a photo finish. Charlie’s Angels was a non-starter for Sony, opening with $8.6 million, less than a quarter of what McG’s Charlie’s Angels made back in 2000. Playing with Fire dropped to fourth while Last Christmas rounded out the top 5. Elsewhere, The Good Liar opened at #7 with $5.7 million while Joker officially crossed the $1 billion mark, becoming the first R-rated movie ever to do so (and passing Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight along the way). Next weekend Frozen II will lay waste to everything in its path.

    I feel like a movie starring Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen, directed by Bill Condon, should be promoted a little better. This is the first time I’m even hearing anything about The Good Liar.
