The box office numbers are in! Here are the top 10 movies from the weekend, did your favorite make it on the list?

Three films premiered at the box office on Friday, the comedy Night School, starring Kevin Hart, the animated Smallfoot for the whole family to enjoy, and one for the adults seeking a few scares, Hell FestWhat movie did you catch in theaters this weekend?

At the front of the class sits Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart’s Night School with $28 million. The comedy is Hart’s weakest opening since The Wedding Ringer, according to Cinemablend, but it was successful enough to climb to number one. With many big features up ahead, such as Halloween and VenomNight School won’t be king of the class for long, though.

Following behind Night School is Smallfoot, the animated children’s comedy scored well with critics and fans, but settled for second place in the top 10. The movie collected a lower than expected sum, only over $23 million.

Finally, the third debut, Gregory Plotkin’s Hell Fest, can be found lower in the top ten, sitting at number six with only $5 million.
