(LIONSGATE) – “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” held on to the top spot at the North American box office for a second week, according to Box Office Mojo, in what Variety reports was the slowest Labor Day weekend in two decades.
Starring Ryan Reynolds, Salma Hayek and Samuel L. Jackson, the film took in an estimate $10 million for the weekend of September 1-3, the film revenue tracking site said on Sunday (September 3).
It added that the weekend box office over all, however, was “miserable” at an estimated combined gross of under $55 million, something it said had not happened during an September weekend in more than 20 years.
Still, horror flick “Annabel: Creation” held on to its second place with an estimated $7.3 million over the weekend.
“Wind River” crept into third place with earnings of 5.8 million for the labor day weekend
At No. 4 was The Weinstein Company’s animated feature “Leap!” with an estimated box office haul of $4.8 million – a disappointing sum given the film played at well over 2,500 theaters.
Rounding out the top five were Studiocanal’s “Logan Lucky” with earning at $4.4 million in estimated weekend sales.
