Walt Disney Pictures' The Lion King slipped to #3 at the domestic box office but still brought in $20 million for a United States total of $473.1 million.

According to a report from Variety, even though Hobbs and Shaw was up against several other movies this past weekend, it still reigned supreme at the domestic box offices.

Released by Viacom Inc.'s Paramount Pictures, Dora took in $17 million (U.S.) in North American theatres this weekend, researcher Comscore Inc. estimated on Sunday. The film took second place, bringing in $20.8 million instead of the $15.9 million Box Office Pro predicted.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark from Lionsgate, CBS Films, and eOne opened in second place, bringing in an estimated $20.8 million and exceeding expectations from the studio. The live-action adaptation of the Nickelodeon kids' programme Dora the Explorer features Isabela Moner, who became a bona fide movie star with 2017's Transformers: The Last Knight.

Michelle Rodriguez, the actress who played Letty Ortiz in the film series also got real about her frustration on Twitter, saying that the spin-off should have brought justice to the death of the Han character.

The yuan's moves over the past week are small compared with fluctuations of the euro and other major currencies. The central bank also said the yuan has strengthened 20 percent against the dollar over the past two decades.

Rounding out the top five, Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood took in another $11.6 million, carrying it past the $100 million mark in its third weekend. Newcomers like "The Art of Racing in the Rain", with Milo Ventimiglia, of "This is Us", came in sixth place with $8.1 million. The Fox 2000 property was inherited by Disney in the takeover.

Warner Bros. and New Line's The Kitchen bombed with a domestic opening of $5.5 million. Forecasts for the film, which cost $49 million to make, ranged from $20.5 million to $22 million.

However, many have dubbed the latest instalments in the "Fast" film franchise as the worst movie that has been released so far.

Still the weekend is down 10.2% and the year continues to lag 6.3% too. "There was so much overlap with all of these titles".

"It's going to feel like summer in September when "It" opens", Dergarabedian said.
