'OCEAN'S 8' STEALS BOX OFFICE WITH $41.5M (06/11/2018)

The female-driven version of the Ocean’s heist franchise opened at the top of the box office with $41.5 million.

Despite the mixed reviews, Ocean’s 8 managed to unseat Solo: A Star Wars Story. Solo landed in second place with $15.2 million on its third weekend. It has now grossed $176.1 million, well off its expected pace.

With a budget of $70 million, it had the franchise’s best-ever opening weekend. Ocean’s 8 stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna and Anne Hathaway, blowing away the George Clooney, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt-toplined Ocean’s that have come out in the past decade. (They all opened at $36 million-$39 million.

The audience for Ocean’s 8 was 69% women.

"We thought we'd come in in the $35-40 (million) range," Warner Bros. distribution chief Jeff Goldstein told the Associated Press. "Number one, it's fun. Number two, it hits an underserved audience. Unfortunately, there is just a lack of stories that are aimed right at women."

Hereditary, starring Toni Collette, debuted with $13 million, a record for production company A24. Hotel Artemis, starring Jodie Foster, flopped with a $3.2 million opener.
