DreamWorks/Pearl’s “Abominable” opened this weekend with an estimated $20 million, taking the top spot from last week’s big earner “Downton Abbey,” which drops to second place this weekend. “Downton” brought in an estimated $14.4 million for it’s second weekend total, which would give it a 10-day total of $58.4 million.
In third is “Hustlers,” performing well with an estimated $11.7 million total in its third weekend. That would give the film a $80 million total. “Ad Astra” is in fourth with $10 million in its second weekend, just ahead of “It: Chapter Two” with an estimated $9.9 million in its fourth weekend. “Judy,” a potential awards contender thanks to Renee Zellweger’s lead performance as Judy Garland, was projected to earn $2.9 million it’s opening weekend.
