The summer season came to an end, and fearing competition from It 2, American distributors did not delight moviegoers with any novelties. The result of the weekend turned out to be appropriate - only $ 69.5 million, and this is one of the worst results this year. If we talk about the summer season as a whole, cinemas revenues amounted to about $ 4.2 billion, which is 4% less than in 2018.|
Top 5 North American box office for August 30 - September 1 is as follows:
1. "The Fall of an Angel"
Week at the box office: 2
Added: $ 11.6 million
Total box office: $ 40.7 million

In the absence of strong competitors, Gerard Butler has no problem saving not only the US president, but also the film "Angel Fall" from financial failure.

2. "Good Boys"
Week at the box office: 3
Added: $ 9.2 million
Total box office: $ 56.2 million
Sank / Rise: - (-21%)
Americans are clearly lacking in humor in the final weeks of summer, and at this point, Good Boys is the only source of laughter in US theaters.

Week at the box office: 5
Added: $ 6.3 million
Total box office: $ 157.1 million

Hobbs and Shaw did not earn too much in home theaters by the standards of the Fast and the Furious franchise, but thanks to foreign viewers, they got out of the financial hole and with the amount of $ 684.2 million, they can well count on the $ 200 million spent by Universal studio on the shooting of the blockbuster. will pay off in the long run.
Week at the box office: 2
Added: $ 5.7 million
Total box office: $ 17.2 million
Sag / Rise: -2 (-30%)
The drama by Alex Kendrick had to drop two positions at once, and it is already clear that the success of the "Command Post", which earned $ 67 million, will not be repeated by the "Winner", but he easily bypassed "Paul, the Apostle of Christ" ($ 17.6 million) and is preparing to surpass the result of "God Didn't Die 2" ($ 20.8 million).
