"The Upside" Takes No. 1, While "Aquaman" Passes $1 Billion

Finally kicking 'Aquaman' off his iron box office throne is Kevin Hart's  "The Upside"  bringing in an estimated $19.5 million in its first week out.

That's about  $10 million better  than analysts expected.  Amongst Kevin Hart's  past box office debuts , $20 million is middle of the road.

Movies like 'Ride Along' or even 'Night School' have fared better opening weekend.  But for an adult dramedy (and considering the week Kevin Hart has had) this is a particularly impressive opening and a confirmation of Hart's box office appeal.

For Bryan 'Walter White' Cranston however this is far and away his best silver screen debut in a starring role.

The  next closest film  is "Why Him" which had an $11 million debut followed by the "The Infiltrator" which only brought in $5 million in its opening weekend.  While the "The Upside" as a whole has been  panned by some critics , several others  have acknowledged  a charming chemistry between the film's two leading men.  And considering this is Hart's first venture into "serious acting" this is a about as good a result as the comedian could've hoped for.  Falling to No.

2 this week after spending three weeks at the top of the box office is "Aquaman" bringing in an  estimated $17 million  in its fourth week out.  Globally, "Aquaman" passed two more box office milestones this weekend —  becoming the first  DC extended universe film to bring in a billion dollars and finally surpassing "The Dark Knight" in worldwide ticket sales.

That makes "Aquaman" the  second-highest grossing  DC film of all time.  Taking the No.

3 spot is "A Dog's Way Home" bringing in an  estimated $11 million  in its first week out.

That's on par with 2017's "A Dog's Purpose" which managed an  $18 million debut .  And inexplicably it's a better  box office debut  than 1993's "Homeward Bound." — which I think we can all agree is a better film in every possible way.  As for next week, M.

Night Shyamalan's improbably redemption story comes to it's  much-anticipated conclusion.
