That figure represents a solid start for Ocean's 8, toward the higher end of industry projections, and it's the biggest opening of the Ocean's franchise, not adjusted for inflation. "Solo: A Star Wars Story" secured second place with $15.5 million in its third weekend.

I should add though that Ocean's 8 isn't exactly setting the world on fire critically, now clocking in at a middling 68% on the Tomatometer and being described as an "underwritten", "slapdash" and "undemanding", hardly language that's going to make me rush out to cinemas. The opening included an estimated $4.7 million in Australia, $2.6 million in Mexico and $1.7 million in Brazil.
Though audiences gave the notoriously scary film a D-plus CinemaScore, it set a company record for boutique distributor A24 with a $13million debut. It has a remarkable 99 per cent "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Sterling K. Brown and Jeff Goldblum are among the co-stars. Looking ahead the film will open this week in France and South Korea on June 13 followed by openings in Germany (Jun 21), Russia (Jun 21), UK (Jun 22), Spain (Jul 6), Italy (Jul 26) and Japan (Aug 10). According to Box Office Mojo, the film, directed by Rian Johnson, has earned a little over 280 million dollars worldwide despite mostly positive reviews.
