The Fall Guy Tops Opening Box Office While Phantom Menace Overtakes Challengers

Despite topping the box office, Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt’s “The Fall Guy” underperformed Universal’s expectations, grossing $28.5 million over the weekend. The film fell short of its estimated $30 million to $35 million earnings.

Meanwhile, an unexpected challenger claimed the second-place spot at the box office, surpassing “Challengers” in the rankings.

This weekend, “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace” celebrated its 25th anniversary with a theatrical rerelease. The prequel claimed second place at the box office, grossing $8.1 million. It surpassed “Challengers,” which earned $7.6 million in its second weekend, bringing its total box office earnings to $29.4 million. While comparable to “The Fall Guy” in terms of earnings, “Challengers” is deemed more successful due to its lower production budget. “The Fall Guy” had a net budget of $130 million, while “Challengers” reportedly cost $55 million to produce.

The new horror film _Tarot_ debuted at fourth place at the box office, bringing in $6.5 million. This is a strong start for Screen Gems, considering the film’s modest budget of $8 million.

Meanwhile, _The Garfield Movie_ has had a successful international debut, earning $22 million. The animated feature will be released in North America on May 24th.

What Is The Fall Guy About?

As a stuntman, he risks life and limb for our entertainment. But after a near-fatal accident, this blue-collar hero faces a daunting task. He must track down a missing movie star, uncover a conspiracy, and reclaim his lost love while continuing to execute death-defying stunts.

From David Leitch, the acclaimed director of action blockbusters like Bullet Train, Deadpool 2, and Atomic Blonde, comes his most personal film yet. The Fall Guy is a hilarious, adrenaline-fueled action thriller that pays tribute to these cinematic spectacles and the unsung heroes who bring them to life.
