Honor Among Thieves’ movie box office
On its opening night, “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” stole the number one spot at the box office.
The fantasy heist action comedy earned $15.3 million in its debut Friday, according to IMDB’s Box Office Mojo.
The film, which stars Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez and Hugh Grant, is expected to enjoy a $40 million-dollar opening weekend, according to Deadline.
It managed to dethrone last week’s top earner “John Wick: Chapter 4,” which earned $7.87 million.
Due to the success of the fourth installment of the hitman thriller series, which was supposed to be the franchise’s last, the possibility of a fifth is being considered.
The Keanu Reeves-led action flick used 35 stunt workers just for one scene where Wick fights his enemies on the 222 steps of the Sacré-Coeur Basilica in Paris, according to the New York Times.
“His Only Son,” a biblical drama based on the Old Testament story of God’s command to Abraham to sacrifice his child, came in third, taking home $2.1 million.
Slasher horror “Scream VI,” which was in second place last Friday, moved down to fourth, with $1.55 million in sales.
“Creed III,” the “Rocky” spinoff directed by and starring Michael B. Jordan, landed in fifth, earning $1.4 million.
