The third weekend of "Crazy Rich Asians" led last year's holiday weekend with $28.6 million. It's a typical performance for a Labor Day weekend with studios avoiding the roll out of major titles and relying on holdovers. In 2017, the third weekend of "The Hitman's Bodyguard" topped the chart with $13.3 million.
Universal's fifth frame of "Hobbs & Shaw" followed in fourth with $8.1 million. Sony's second weekend of the faith-based drama "Overcomer" came in fifth with $7.8 million for an 11-day take of $19.3 million. The Fast and Furious spinoff, starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, will finish Labor Day at around $159 million domestically.
Disney’s seventh frame of its photo-realistic remake of “The Lion King” took third with $9.3 million. The third weekend of Universal's R-rated comedy "Good Boys" finished second with $11.6 million at 3,458 sites to top $58 million. “The Lion King” was the highest-grossing film this summer with domestic ticket sales at $523.5 million to date.
Year-to-date box office is down 6.4% to $7.81 billion. Labor Day is the official end of the summer movie season, which generated $4.32 billion in ticket sales in North America, marking a 2% decline from last year’s $4.41 billion, according to Comscore. That means the movie business will need to rely on huge hits in fall and winter to offset that deficit.” />
Gerard Butler’s “Angel Has Fallen” easily topped the Labor Day holiday weekend with $14.8 million at 3,336 locations in North America, for an 11-day total of nearly $44 million.
"Angel Has Fallen," which took in $21 million in its opening weekend, could wind up matching the $62 million taken in by 2016's "London Has Fallen" but will probably fall short of the $98 million domestic total for 2013's "Olympus Has Fallen." The Lionsgate-Millennium title, the third entry in the action franchise, stars Butler as a Secret Service Agent trying to clear his name after being framed for an attack on the U.S. President, played by Morgan Freeman.
"Don't Let Go" stars David Oyelowo as a detective working to solve a murder after he receives a phone call from his dead niece, played by Storm Reid. Supernatural thriller "Don’t Let Go" debuted with a modest $3 million at 922 North American locations over the four days, coming in at the lower end of modest expectations and finished out of the top 10.
Fox Searchlight's second weekend of horror thriller "Ready or Not" came in sixth with $7 million at 2,998 locations, pushing the title past $19 million in its first 11 days. Lionsgate-CBS's fourth frame of "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" followed in seventh with $6.3 million at 2,747 sites, lifting "Scary Stories" to $59 million domestically in 24 days.
"Don't Let Go" has a small $5 million production budget. Reviews have been mixed with a 42% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. "Don't Let Go" was produced by Jason Blum and directed by Jacob Aaron Estes, with Blumhouse Tilt and OTL Releasing handling distribution.
Paramount's fourth weekend of "Dora and the Los City of Gold" led a trio of Sony titles contending for ninth place with $5.7 million at 2,477 venues. Sony's third weekend of "The Angry Birds Movie 2" followed in 10th with $5.6 million at 3,311 sites, edging the studio's sixth weekend of "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" and its ninth session of "Spider-Man: Far From Home."

Disney’s seventh weekend of its photorealistic remake of "The Lion King" and Sony’s second weekend of faith-based drama “Overcomer” will battle for third place with about $6 million each. “The Lion King” will wind up the weekend with nearly $520 million domestically.
Supernatural thriller "Don’t Let Go" is likely to debut with an unexceptional $3 million at 922 North American locations over the four days, which is at the lower end of modest expectations. "Don't Let Go" stars David Oyelowo as a detective working to solve a murder after he receives a phone call from his dead niece, played by Storm Reid.

Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman are showing staying power at the North American box office as "Angel Has Fallen" heads for a passable $10 million Labor Day holiday weekend, early estimates showed Friday.
The final weekend of the summer season is arriving with year-to-date domestic box office at $7.67 billion, down 6.6% from 2018 as of Aug. 28. Last year's Labor Day weekend was dominated by the third frame of "Crazy Rich Asians," which took in $28 million over the four days.” /> Total box office for summer has edged up 0.8% to $4.73 billion, according to Comscore.
Butler stars as a Secret Service Agent trying to clear his name after being framed for an attack on the U.S. President, played by Freeman. The third entry in Lionsgate-Millennium's action franchise will finish the frame with about $40 million in its first 11 days.
Also opening this weekend is Forrest Films' drama “Bennett’s War" at 970 sites with moviegoers showing little interest in the story of a motocross star, played by Michael Roark, who returns to the track despite being wounded during military service in Afghanistan. Early estimates placed the four-day total at a microscopic $600,000.

I’m perplexed
Insult me in a line, compliment me on the next, damn
I’m really sorry you want me to have a heart attack
Was watchin’ 8 Mile on my NordicTrack
Realized I forgot to call you back
Here’s that autograph for your daughter, I wrote it on a Starter cap
Stan, Stan, son, listen, man, Dad isn’t mad
But how you gonna name yourself after a damn gun and have a man bun? Fuck, your beard’s weird
Alright
You yellin’ at the mic, you weird beard
We doin’ this once
You yellin’ at the mic, your beard’s weird, why you yellin’ at the mic? ‘Cause I’m takin’ a shit in ’em, Kelly, I need reading material
…Dictionary…
Yo Slim, your last four albums sucked
Go back to Recovery, oh shoot, that was three albums ago
What do you know? You sound like a bitch, bitch
Shut the fuck up
When your fans become your haters
You done? What the fuck’s in the bowl, milk? Little white toothpick
Thinks it’s over a pic, I just don’t like you, prick
Thanks for dissing me
Now I had an excuse on the mic to write “Not Alike”
But really, I don’t care who’s in the right
But you’re losin’ the fight you picked
Who else want it, Kells? The giant’s woke, eyes open, undeniable
Supplyin’ smoke, got the fire stoked
Say you got me in a scope, but you grazed me
I say one call to Interscope and you’re Swayze
Your reply got the crowd yelling, “Woo”
So before you die let’s see who can out-petty who
With your corny lines (Slim, you’re old)
Ow, Kelly, ooh, but I’m 45 and I’m still outselling you
By 29 I had three albums that had blew
Now let’s talk about somethin’ I don’t really do
Go in someone’s daughter’s mouth stealin’ food
But you’re a fuckin’ mole hill, now I’ma make a mountain out of you, woo! No, you’re the whack me
It’s funny, but so true
I’d rather be 80-year-old me than 20-year-old you
‘Til I’m hitting old age still can fill a whole page with a ten-year-old’s rage
Got more fans than you in your own city, lil’ kiddy
Go play, feel like I’m babysitting Lil Tay
Got the Diddy okay so you spent your whole day
Shootin’ a video just to fuckin’ dig your own grave
Got you at your own wake, I’m the billy goat
You ain’t never made a list next to no Biggie, no Jay
Next to Taylor Swift, and that Iggy ho, you about to really blow
Kelly, they’ll be putting your name
Next to Ja, next to Benzino, die, motherfucker
Like the last motherfucker sayin’ Hailie in vain
Alien brain, you Satanist (yeah)
My biggest flops are your greatest hits
The game’s mine again and ain’t nothin’ changed but the locks
So before I slay this bitch, mwah, give Jade a kiss
Gotta wake up Labor Day to this (the fuck?)
Bein’ rich-shamed by some prick usin’ my name for clickbait
In a state of bliss ’cause I said his goddamn name
Now I gotta cock back, aim, yeah, bitch, pop champagne to this (pop)
It’s your moment, this is it
As big as you’re gonna get, so enjoy it
Had to give you a career to destroy it
Lethal injection, go to sleep six feet deep
I’ll give you a B for the effort, but if I was three
Foot 11, you’d look up to me, and for the record
You would suck a dick to fuckin’ be me for a second
Lick a ballsack to get on my channel
Give your life to be as solidified
This mothafuckin’ shit is like Rambo when he’s out of bullets
So what good is a fuckin’ machine gun when it’s out of ammo? He’ll have to fuck Kim in my flannel
I’ll give him my sandals
‘Cause he knows long as I’m Shady, he’s gon’ have to live in my shadow
Exhausting, letting off on my offspring
Like a gun barrel, bitch, get off me
You dance around it like a sombrero, we can all see
You’re fuckin’ salty ’cause Young Gerald’s balls-deep inside of Halsey
Your red sweater, your black leather
You dress better, I rap better
That a death threat or a love letter? Ho, chill, actin’ like you put the chrome barrel to my bone marrow
Gunner? bitch, you ain’t a bow and arrow
Say you’ll run up on me like a phone bill, sprayin’ lead (brrt)
Playin’ dead, that’s the only time you hold still (hold up)
Are you eating cereal… or oatmeal? Yeah, I had enough money in ’02
To burn it in front of you, ho
Younger me? Oops, know your facts before you come at me, lil’ goof
Luxury, oh, you broke, bitch? Rihanna just hit me on the text
Last night I left hickeys on her neck
Wait, you just dissed me? Had enough of this tatted-up mumble rapper
How the fuck can him and I battle? Wheaties or Cheerios? Attempt fails, Budden, L’s
Fuckin’ nails in these coffins as soft as Cottonelle
Killshot, I will not fail, I’m with the Doc still
But this idiot’s boss pops pills and tells him he’s got skills
But Kells, the day you put out a hit’s the day Diddy admits
That he put the hit out that got Pac killed, ah
I’m sick of you bein’ whack
And still usin’ that mothafuckin’ AutoTune, so let’s talk about it (let’s talk about it)
I’m sick of your mumble rap mouth
Need to get the cock up out it before we can even talk about it (talk about it)
I’m sick of your blonde hair and earrings
Just ’cause you look in the mirror and think that you’re Marshall Mathers (Marshall Mathers)
Don’t mean you are, and you’re not about it
So just leave my dick in your mouth, and keep my daughter out it
You fuckin’… oh
And I’m just playin’, Diddy, you know I love you

It's official (as if it weren't already): "Fortnite" is a part of mainstream culture.
Spirit Halloween and Spencer's Monday announced a new partnership with the game's developer that will have the two retailers selling a range of officially licensed "Fortnite" Halloween costumes, cosplay gear, and accessories come this fall.
The gear, currently listed on Spirit Halloween's website, includes a light-up, music-playing Boogie Bomb, pickax, some back bling ("Fortnite" vernacular for what are essentially backpacks), and a number of costumes ranging from the holiday-themed Crackshot to the bare-bones skull trooper. In the game, players can pay as much as $20 for digital versions of those costumes. Some of the more elaborate costumes, and there are a ton of them in the game, haven't yet made it onto the website and it's unclear if they ever will. The prices range from $15 for some of the smaller props to about $60 for the adult costumes.
