Box Office Top 20: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’ hits No. 1

LOS ANGELES — “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” stole the weekend from the heist pic “Logan Lucky.” Starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds, “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” opened to $21.4 million, easily topping the weekend which continued the downward spiral of the summer movie season compared to last year.

The horror pic “Annabelle: Creation” took second place in its second weekend in theatres with $15.6 million, while director Steven Soderbergh’s “Logan Lucky,” starring Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and Daniel Craig, hobbled into third place in its first weekend in theatres with $7.6 million.

Christopher Nolan’s WWII pic “Dunkirk” placed fourth with $6.6 million, bringing its domestic total to $165.4 million after 5 weeks in theatres, while “The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature” took fifth with $5.1 million.
