Two new movies, Ford v Ferrari and Charlie’s Angels, finished in the top five at the weekend box office.

In first place by far was Ford v Ferrari, starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon. It debuted in 3,528 theatres, earning an impressive $31.3 million in its first weekend.

Dropping one spot to second place was Midway, which takes place during WWII after the attack on Pearl Harbor. It took in an additional $8.8 million for a total of $35.1 million during its second weekend.

Charlie’s Angels, a reboot of the 2000 feature film, which was in turn based on the 1970s TV series, stars Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska. It opened in 3,452 theatres and earned $8.6 million.

The family comedy Playing with Fire starring John Cena dropped a spot to fourth with an additional $8.6 million for a total take of $25.5 million.

    Ford V Ferrari according to may Hollywood insiders, critics and odd makers stands a very good chance of Oscar nominations for Damon and Bale in addition for Best Picture. It is one of the best films of the year and regardless of knowledge or interest in motorsports has a story that anyone will find riveting. It’s no surprise to me that it was #1 at the box-office in addition to. critical success. I suggest that audiences see it in IMAX especially for the climax of the picture alone.
