Top 10 Movies At The US Box Office This Weekend

The latest numbers have come in, and the action movie The Fate of the Furious sits atop the US box office chart for a second weekend in a row, bringing in $38.7 million.

Via Entertainment Weekly, this is down substantially from last weekend’s opening haul of $100.2 million. Predecessor Furious 7 made around $147 million for its domestic first weekend and a further $73 million for its second weekend, so this is just the latest downturn for the franchise stateside.

The international story looks different, however, as The Fate of the Furious brought in $163.4 million internationally this weekend, boosting its global haul to $908.4 million after just two weeks. The movie is expected to cross $1 billion during the next week. The Fate of the Furious made $532.5 million worldwide on its first weekend, toppling Star Wars: The Force Awakens to set a new record.

Rounding out the top five this weekend were The Boss Baby ($12.8 million), Beauty and the Beast ($10 million), Born in China ($5.1 million), and Going in Style ($5 million). You can see the full estimates for the April 21-23 US weekend below.
