Top 10 movies at the box office right now: Good Boys, Ready or Not


What a sleepy time at the box office. Despite a new slate of movies dropping this past weekend, the highest number reached is $21.2 million. Let’s have a look!

The No. 1 spot at the box office goes to Angel Has Fallen, but its $21.2 million isn’t much to brag about. The movie, which stars Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman, is an R action with a budget of $40 million, so it still has a journey to go if it wants to make any profit. This isn’t too surprising, though, August is known to pull in low numbers.

Following behind with $11.7 million is last week’s champ, Good BoysThe film Overcomer is also a new one this weekend, but only managed to open in third place with $8.2 million. Finally, even more surprising is Ready or Not, which you won’t find until your eyes reach No. 6, with $7.5 million.

Despite the positive reviews and critical acclaim from both fans and critics, the movie only managed to gather $7.5 million over the weekend. It is expected to climb the charts, though, here in the following week.
