‘The Fall Guy’ Tops The Box Office

The Fall Guy

Universal’s The Fall Guy, the Ryan Gosling starrer inspired by the 1980s TV show starring Lee Majors, kicked off the summer movie season at No. 1 with $28.5 million. Disney’s rerelease of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace took the second spot pulling in $8 million for the slow weekend.

Despite The Fall Guy’s No. 1 finish, it came in behind expectations of $30 million to $35 million. The box office is down dramatically from the same frame a year ago, when Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 bowed to $118.4 million domestically. The weekend is down 53 percent from last year, and off more than 66 percent from 2022, when Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opened to $187.4 million domestically.
