The film debuted in the top spot and as the number one debut of the year so far with an impressive $55.5 million at the box office this weekend.

Alita: Battle Angel was bumped down a spot to second place in its second weekend at the box office. The film is about a cyborg core (Rosa Salazar) who is rebuilt into a deadly new body. This movie gained an additional $12 million for a total of $60.7 million.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part also dropped a spot, winding up in third place in its third weekend at the box office. The animated film starring the voices of Chris Pratt and Elizabeth Banks gained an additional $10 million for a domestic total of $83.6 million.

Debuting in fourth place was the comedy film Fighting With My Family.

The film, which also stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, earned $8 million in its opening weekend.
