Box Office Results: The Hitman's Bodyguard Beats A Ballerina And Scary Doll

The Hitman's Bodyguard claimed the number one spot in what was the slowest weekend of the Summer box office and the lowest weekend of 2001, coming out ahead of Annabelle: Creation and Leap!. The top twelve movies earned a combined $49 million, which ended up being the worst that the top twelve has earned since the September 2001 earning of $43.5 million.  The Hitman's Bodyguard finished with an estimated $10, winning its second weekend in a row. Those numbers may actually drop below double digits when the final tallies come in, which last happened in September 2015 with War Room earning $9.4 million.
Annabelle: Creation continued its strong box office performance finishing in second with an estimated $7.35 million, bringing its domestic earnings to nearly $78 million so far in three weeks. Leap! finished in third place with an estimated $5 million, a somewhat disappointing start in its opening weekend. Wind River earned an estimated $4.4 million for fourth place, which has slowly expanded into more theaters. Logan Lucky finished in fifth place with an estimated $4.4 million, earning near $15 million in its first 10 days. Birth of the Dragon finished in eighth with an estimated $2.5 million. The other new release fell outside of the top ten, with All Saints earning an estimated $1.6 million.
