It might be the highest-grossing horror movie of all time, but Kingsman: The Golden Circle topped the North American box office this past weekend.
According to Box Office Mojo, the super spy sequel lassoed up an estimated $39 million, about $3 million more than its predecessor’s debut. While It dropped to #2, the film still had an impressive third weekend, making an estimated $30 million. This brings its total to $266.3 million, surpassing The Exorcist domestically.
Meanwhile, The Lego Ninjago Movie performed below expectations, grossing only about $21.2 million. Still, between It and Kingsman, this could become a record high for the month of September, more than compensating for August’s lackluster box office performance.
