Starring Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Terminator: Dark Fate debuted in over 4,000 theaters, taking in a total of $29 million at the domestic box office. Compared to the first weekend of 2015’s Terminator Genisys, the new sequel earned $2 million more.

Another new movie — Harriet, starring Cynthia Erivo in the title role as the escaped slave who formed the Underground Railroad — debuted in over 2,000 theaters, earning $12 million in its first weekend.
Rounding out the top five was the animated feature The Addams Family. It earned an additional $8.5 million for a four-week total of $85.3 million. ~ May Wong
