Monday's Headlines | Weekend Box Office

This weekend at the box office, Fox’s “Ford v Ferrari” raced to the top as Elizabeth Banks’ “Charlie’s Angels” crashed and burned.

Directed by James Mangold, “Ford v Ferrari” opened in first place with $31 million, well above analyst projections of $20 million, according to estimates from measurement firm Comscore. Despite the strong showing for a film aimed at adults, the overall box office was down versus a year ago for a fifth straight weekend, falling 37.6% short of the same three-day period in 2018 when “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” opened with $62.2 million. The year-to-date total now stands at $9.7 billion, 6.2% below last year.

Starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon, the $97-million film takes place in 1966 and tells the real-life story of two men who helped the Ford Motor Co. become the first American company to win Le Mans, the world’s most prestigious sports car race.

Audiences responded with a rare A+ CinemaScore and the film scored a 92% “fresh” rating on movie review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes.

At No. 2, Lionsgate’s “Midway” added $8.8 million in its second weekend (a 51% drop) for a cumulative $35.1 million.

In third place, Sony’s rebooted “Charlie’s Angels” opened with $8.6 million, well below modest analyst projections of $12 million to $13 million.

Written, directed by and co-starring Elizabeth Banks, the film features Kristen Stewart, Ella Balinska and Naomi Scott as the new trio of Angels in the Charles Townsend Agency’s now global operation.

The $50-million movie is in the same canon as the ‘70s television series, McG’s 2000 film of the same name and his 2003 sequel, “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.” It earned a mixed reception with a B+ CinemaScore and a 59% “rotten” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

BATMAN: PENNYWORTH R.I.P. #1
written by JAMES TYNION IV and PETER J. TOMASI
art by EDDY BARROWS, EBER FERREIRA and others
cover by LEE WEEKS
Alfred Pennyworth served the Wayne family for decades—even through the tragic loss of Bruce Wayne’s parents. His death at the hands of Bane is the only event that could possibly compare to that fateful night in Crime Alley, and it leaves Bruce at a similar crossroads. If Alfred was the glue that held the Bat-Family together, how will Batman deal with that all falling apart? And if the Caped Crusader is to be truly alone, he might either hang that cape up once and for all…or double down and carry on with this vengeful quest forever. Batman: Pennyworth R.I.P. #1 celebrates the life of one of the most important people in the history of Gotham City, while also addressing questions about what’s next.
