The Predator underwhelms atop the Weekend Box Office

20th Century Fox’s The Predator didn’t drum up much business at the domestic box office over the weekend and debuted with an underwhelming $24 million. While the film debuted atop the box office, The Predator has a budget of $88 million so it’s a hill to climb out of the gate. That being said the film did perform better in international markets with the film picking up another $30.7 million for a global open of $54.7 million.

Warner/New Line’s The Nun dropped to second spot in it’s sophomore weekend with another $18.2 million. The film has generated $85 million in two weeks on a budget of $22 million, the polar opposite of The Predator.

Debuting in the number 3 and 4 spots respectively were Lionsgate’s A Simple Favour with $16.1 million and Studio 8’s White Boy Rick with an estimated $8.8 million. Rounding out the top five was Warner Bros.’ Crazy Rich Asians with an estimated $8.7 million. The film has taken in an $149.5 million domestically.

  1. The Predator (Fox) $24.0 mil
  2. The Nun (WB/NL) $18.2 mil
  3. A Simple Favor (LGF) $16.1 mil
  4. White Boy Rick (Studio8) $8.8 mil
  5. Crazy Rich Asians (WB) $8.7 mil
