Annabelle’s reign at the top is short lived as new entry The Hitman’s Bodyguard goes straight in at number one with cinema takings of $21,384,504. Logan Lucky is another new entry this week coming in at three but only managing box office takings of $7,600,036.
Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk meanwhile slips to four but is still doing good business with another $6,614,385 taken at the box office meaning gross to date figures of $165,422,464.
Whilst Spider-Man: Homecoming refuses to go away having already spent 45 days in the top 10 and gross to date figures of a massive $314,057,748 which should keep Sony happy for a while.
