For the first time this summer I would have guessed the weekend winner incorrectly. Really since the end of April movie season has basically gone as expected. We've talked a lot about how busy this stretch really was and it's not even over just yet. In fact, you have about another 2 solid weeks of summer releases before you see the season come to a halt.
"The Equalizer 2" topped "Mama Mia: Here We Go Again!" which frankly, I didn't see happening. It had been 4 years since the first "Equalizer" film and 10 since the first, "Mama Mia" movie. I had this feeling that the ABBA fans would jump on this release and take over the box office. They fell just a little short of that top spot this week.
Here's this weekend's top five:
1. "The Equalizer 2"- $35.8 Million
2. "Mama Mia:Here We Go Again!"- $34.3 Million
3. "Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation"- $23.1 Million
4. "Ant-Man and The Wasp"- $16.1 Million
5. "The Incredibles 2"- $11.1 Million
