The film follows one of the world's top bodyguards (Reynolds) as he is forced to protect his enemy, a notorious hitman (Jackson).

We could have another new box office champion next weekend as we only have two wide releases opening and I'm predicting that The Hitman's Bodyguard will remain the box office champion. The best the Bleeker Street Films release could muster from 3,031 screens was an inauspicious $8 million. It drew its fair share of females, or 48 percent. In third place is the Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, and Daniel Craig-starring film, Logan Lucky.

The runner-up was last weekend's leader - the horror-thriller sequel, Annabelle: Creation - which took in another $16 million.

Warner Bros. a unit of Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) and Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk placed #4 with $6.7-M for a domestic take of $165.5-M and a global box office of $392.7-M.

Logan Lucky - the first film Soderbergh has made in four years after his previously announced retirement - boasts a stellar 93 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but audiences were notably less enthusiastic, giving it a B grade.

Logan Lucky placed third with an estimated $8.1 million from 3,301 theaters, the lowest nationwide start of Soderbergh's career behind the 2002 space odyssey Solaris ($6.7 million) and the lowest when adjusting for inflation.

In other words, R.I.P. 2017 Summer Movie Season. Off only 29% from last weekend, the kiddie flick has earned $18.4 million so far.

Rounding out the 10 most-popular films in North America, as estimated by the studios and collated by comScore, were "The Emoji Movie" ($4.3 million), "Spider-Man: Homecoming" ($4.2 million), "Girls Trip" ($3.8 million), "The Dark Tower" ($3.7 million), and "Wind River" ($3 million).
