Top Movies Of The Weekend

'ALIEN: COVENANT' DISAPPOINTS WITH $36M OPENING (05/22/2017)

The Ridley Scott-helmed Alien: Covenant initially looked like it would come in with around $40 million in box office receipts this weekend, but it ended up bringing in $36 million, a decent haul but nothing spectacular, considering its production cost in the high $90 million range, according to Deadline.

Alien: Covenant also lags behind Prometheus’ opening of $51 million and Alien v. Predator’s $38 million.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 nipped at Alien’s heels, with a $35.1 million box office this weekend in its third weekend out.
