Box Office: ‘Free Guy’ Still No. 1 Hero With $19M, ‘PAW Patrol’ Opens to Solid $13M https://t.co/FpWM52nRf0— The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) August 22, 2021
Free Guy stayed #1 this weekend with $18.8 million. The film saw an incredible hold by only dropping 34%, one of the lowest drops this era.
The Paw Patrol Movie came in 2nd with better-than-expected $13 million. Jungle Cruise followed with $6.2 million. Don't Breathe 2 ($5 million) and Respect ($3.8 million) rounded out the top 5.
Newer wide releases this week -- The Protege ($2.9 million), The Night House ($2.89 million) and Reminiscence ($2 million) -- made little impact. Sean Penn's Flag Day also opened in 24 theaters to $40k, while Neill Blomkamp's Demonic opened in 85 theaters to $36k.
Overall gross dropped to $63 million, back to levels not seen since mid-June.
Next weekend Candyman finally drops and is the only studio film set for release.
