In terms of box office, 2017 had the worst August in 20 years, but the mammoth success ofFallouthas at least ensured that 2018 will be better. The movie made $35 million in its first three days, bringing its domestic total to $124.8 million to date. The family movieChristoper Robinopened in second place, with a $24.5 take, with the R-rated comedyThe Spy Who Dumped Meat No.3 with $12.1 million. Both films fell short of studio expectations, but asBox Office Mojopoints out, a lack of competition in the next few weeks should help their ongoing performance.
The action sequelMission Impossible: Falloutmaintained its position at the top of the box office chart in the first weekend of what is often one of the quietest months for theater-going. With all the big Hollywood blockbusters now on release and the more prestigious awards-oriented movies still a couple of months from theaters, August release slots are often used by studios as a dumping ground for movies that arent expected to do as well.
