The weekend box office numbers are available, and as expected, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” has taken the number one spot, which is not a surprise by any means. The original movie was a blast and managed to keep itself in the top ten for several weeks.

The new film, however, doesn’t have to rely on word of mouth for success, so securing the top position at the weekend box office is perfectly fine. The film had a $39 million domestic debut, which is better than the original. Furthermore, its international haul is tracking to $61.2 from 55 territories. If all goes well, "The Golden Circle" could cross the $100 million mark by tomorrow.

‘IT’ takes the second spot

The horror remake, “IT,” is still making money at the box office. It couldn’t retain the number one spot, but that shouldn’t matter much for Warner Bros. since the movie made $30 million. This has allowed the film to earn a worldwide total of $478 million, and no doubt it will surpass $500 million in the weeks to come.

The success of “IT” is a well-needed jolt for the box office, and for horror movies in general. It should be interesting to see if the follow-up can garner similar or better success whenever it launches into theaters.

‘The Lego Ninjago Movie’ disappoints

Lego movies have proven to be a huge success story at the box office, but unfortunately for Warner Bros., “The Lego Ninjago Movie” isn’t what the doctor ordered. The movie could only earn $21.2 million domestic and $31.7 million worldwide in its opening weekend for the number three position.

‘American Assassin’ is still holding on

When the first trailer for “American Assassin” was released on the web, it had the makings of a spectacular film. However, this was never meant to be due to the high amount of low scores it garnered from critics. Despite that, it’s holding its own at the box office with a haul of $6.25 million in its second week.

The total overall earnings are around $32.3 million, a huge blow to Lionsgate.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ is shooting for the stars

The new Spider-Man movie isn’t the best franchise, but it’s a good enough start. It’s quite the success story in the world of superhero movies as well. The film is now the highest-grossing superhero film of 2017 so far, and the second highest Spider-Man movie of all time.

Many fans of the genre had thought “Wonder Woman” would take the top spot, but such is not the case. The DC Extended Universe fans will now put their faith in “Justice League” to make things right.
