Weekend Box Office Report: 'Ocean's 8' makes off with top spot

June 10, 2018 - 12:35 pm

PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — "Ocean's 8" is No. 1.

The female heist flick — a spinoff of the "Ocean's 11" franchise, starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter and Awkwafina — debuted as the box office champ by earning an estimated $42 million over the weekend.

That dropped the leader of the last two weekends — "Solo: A Star Wars Story" — to the runner-up spot, totaling $15 million.

Third place belonged to the holdover sequel "Deadpool 2" with $14 million.

Fourth went to the debuting horror thriller "Hereditary," earning $13 million.

Overall, industry-wide totals were slightly ahead of those of last weekend, but well behind those of the counterpart weekend a year ago.
