Racing drama Ford V Ferrari makes its US debut this week at the top of the box office while heavily hyped reboot Charlie's Angels also makes its debut but at number 3, all told it was yet another very quiet November weekend at the US box office.
Ford V. Ferrari ( Le Mans '66 )
Directed by James Mangold the racing drama, which has the title Le Mans '66 outside North America, lands at number 1 this weekend with a gross of $31 Million.
The film may have topped the US box office but the chart as a whole is going through a slump and is 44% lower than 2018 when Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald made its debut.
The World War II drama about the battle of Midway falls from the top to number 2 on its second weekend of release with $8.7 Million taking the movies total to $35.1 Million.
After much hype this big screen reboot makes its debut at number 3 with a largely disappointing $8.6 Million.
The Elizabeth Banks directed movie failed to pull in audience and failed it pull in the same kind of interest the 2000 version of the TV show managed.
Playing With Fire
Starring John Cena this light-heated comedy fell to number 4 on its second weekend with $8.5 Million taking its total to $22.5 Million.
The holiday film featuring the music of George Micheal and Wham! falls to number 5 on its second weekend with $6.1 Million for a $25 Million total.
