The Top 5 movies this weekend:

1. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil – $36 million
2. Joker (2019) – $29.2 million
3. Zombieland 2: Double Tap – $26.7 million
4. The Addams Family (2019) – $16.1 million
5. Gemini Man – $8.5 million

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil topped the box office list but fell below expectations. The Angelina Jolie sequel earned $36 million in its opening weekend, about half of what the first flick did in 2014.

After two weeks at number-one, Joker slid to second with $29.2 million. That brings the comic book flick’s domestic take to  $247 million.

Zombieland 2: Double Tap opened in third with a better-than-expected $26.7 million.

The Addams Family dropped from second to fourth with $16.1 million. And Gemini Man, starring Will Smith, went from third to fifth with $8.5 million.
