This weekend saw the release of three absolutely unique movies both in terms of their plots as well as the big cast associated. A little contrary to expectations, Downton Abbey, with not many Hollywood biggies onboard managed to beat Brad Pitt starrer Ad Astra and Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo: Last Blood in North American theaters.
The British drama’s film continuation racked in a total of $31 million in North American theaters whereas globally earned $41 million for a worldwide tally of $61.8 million.
The movie easily managed to beat the big-budgeted and big starrer movies by acquiring an A cinemascope. Ad Astra and Last Blood received a B- and B respectively.
Finishing at the second place was Brad Pitt’s Ad Astra that earned a total of $19.2 million on American box office. The movie finished off with a $45.2 globally but still has a long way to justify its huge $80 million costs.
Sylvester’s last installment of Rambo met expectations of distributors and ended its first weekend at $19.015 million in America – slightly ahead of its 2008 franchise “Rambo” ($18.2 million).
Finishing off at number 4 was It: Chapter Two whereas Jennifer Lopez starrer Hustler stood at number 5.
