WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Secret Life of Pets 2 tops the chart with 47.1MM, which is... pretty terrible when you consider the original mademore than twice as much in its opening weekend. The studio wisely held the budget to 80MM (the original cost 75MM), so this will make money, but it has to be a huge disappointment. And yet, people may not notice because it's probably not as bad as X-Men: Dark Phoenix places with 33MM, which is far worse than the 54MM opening of the first X-Men flick in 2000 -- and this one has a 200MM price tag. They should have seen the writing on the wall with Apocalypse, and also realized this installment (which is not well-reviewed) would pay for how mediocre the last one was. We can only hope that Kevin Feige can figure out a way do this properly in the MCU, now that the Mouse owns the Fox. Aladdin takes the fourth slot with 24.5MM on a 43 percent slide, which the Mouse will definitely take after the Dumbo scare. Last week's chart champ, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, rounds out the Top Five with 15.5MM on a 68 percent drop, which is bad but similar to the fall -off from the 2014 reboot.
