Ride Along 2 rounded out the day's unchanged top five with $0.824 million.

STX Entertainment's The Boy and Sony's The 5th Wave rounded out their respective first weeks of release with sixth and seventh place takes of $0.632 million and $0.598 million. For the week, The Boy placed in fifth with a seven-day start of $13.63 million, while The 5th Wave followed closely behind in sixth with a seven-day start of $13.19 million.
