This past weekend saw the wide release of the Tom Cruise flick American Made and the ‘90s rebooted film, Flatliners.

In the top spot by a narrow margin is IT with $17.3 million. After getting pushed to second place last weekend by Kingsman, it looks to have reclaimed the throne — at least by today’s estimates, which could very well change come tomorrow.

In second place is American Made, the Tom Cruise-starring vehicle that’s been getting great reviews from critics. Sadly, $17 million seems to be a disappointing start for a film that took $50 million to make. It may show the declining appeal of Cruise following the disappointing Mummy remake.

In third place is Kingsman: The Golden Circle also with $17 million (though a little less than American Made). The film dropped 56.4 percent from its first weekend. While it managed to beat its predecessor in its first weekend, as of right now, it’s starting to fall behind in terms of total domestic box office. Apparently the lukewarm word of mouth is starting to show itself.

Flatliners had a disappointing start at fifth place and $6.7 million. It has a rare 0 perecent on Rotten Tomatoes, and while it only cost $19 million to produce, it doesn’t sound like there’s any real good news to pull from this one.

    Saw Kingsman: The Golden Circle this past Saturday and was mad I paid full price. The characters were pretty dumb and the huge modular cube prison for people hooked on that drug near the end was beyond retarded. It’s like how in the hell could that setup be erected in a matter of days to hold thousands of people?

      It was clearly an already existing sports stadium where they just stacked cages with cranes.

      • WTFITBS

        Not the stadium. It’s the fact that they had thousands of those little cages and equipment to stack them perfectly going up to the damn sky. It’s like there is no existing protocol that would require something like that to be so easily accessible do they had to make it for that purpose. Just unrealistic at how quick it was stood up because the effects of the virus was quick reacting.

          Anymore unrealistic than the light saber lasso?

    Damn, IT is still bringing in worldwide bank every weekend…
