With no competition, “Angel Has Fallen” swooped in and grabbed the crown with $21.3 million, just above the ceiling of last week’s projection, which had it somewhere under $20 million. That’s way below the debut of the original, “Olympus Has Fallen” ($30.3 million) and slightly above the sequel, “London Has Fallen” ($21.6 million). In second place was last week’s winner, “Good Boys,” with another $11.6 million, now doubling its production budget. Faith-vased film “Overcomer” also edged over its debut range with $8.1 million, just above its $8 million ceiling projection. On a $5 million production budget, it’s already earned back its money.

Speaking of earning back its production budget, “Ready Or Not” debuted to $8 million, just over the $7 million we predicted. Opening earlier in the week, the film now has $11 million and has almost doubled its production budget as well. Rounding out the List was newcomer “Brittany Runs A Marathon,” which was predicted to find a spot this weekend and barely made it. Earning $36,142 per five theaters, that was enough to earn it the POPCORN AWARD as well. Hanging on to the GOLDEN PERCENTAGE AWARD from last weekend was “The Peanut Butter Falcon,” which moved up eight spots and increased +945.8%.

The only other film to increase on the List this week was “Luce,” which jumped three spots from #25 to #22, increasing +53.3%. The biggest drops on the List were “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” in its second weekend, dropping five spots, and “The Kitchen” in its third weekend and almost earning a BOMB, dropping eight spots. The films to fall off were “Bring The Soul: The Movie,” which didn’t have any information available for this week, and “Crawl,” which was predicted to fall off. Also, “Brian Banks” failed to hold on in its third weekend and “Maiden” ended quite a successful run of nine weeks.

Next weekend could go right back to “Angel Has Fallen,” as absolutely nothing of note is released. Some supernatural thriller titled “Don’t Let Go,” starring David Oyelowo and Storm Reid, hits 900 theaters, but no projections were available at the time of this article. Chances are, however, with not much buzz, it won’t make much of a splash at the top of the List. The Bollywood film “Saaho” could also land somewhere on the List, plus, a film starring Keira Knightley titled “Official Secrets” is also supposed to be getting a release. Making room for these few titles will be “The Secret Life Of Pets 2,” which sees a home video release tomorrow, “The Kitchen,” which almost BOMBed this weekend, and possibly “Mission Mangal,” as another Bollywood film could cannabalize the numbers for that market.
