‘Angel Has Fallen’ Rises to No. 1 With $21 million debut

“Angel Has Fallen,” the third chapter in Lionsgate and Millennium’s action franchise starring Gerard Butler, had a stronger opening weekend than expected, collecting $21.25 million during its first three days of release.

Those ticket sales were enough to top domestic box office charts, bumping last weekend’s champ, Universal’s comedy “Good Boys,” to second place. Starring Jacob Tremblay, “Good Boys” generated $11.75 million in its sophomore outing, boosting its domestic total to $41.4 million.

“Angel Has Fallen” nearly matched the $21.6 million debut of its predecessor, 2016’s “London Has Fallen.” The first film, 2013’s “Olympus Has Fallen,” kicked off with $30.4 million.

Opening weekend crowds were virtually split across gender lines (51% male), while almost 60% of moviegoers were over the age of 30. Audiences awarded “Angel Has Fallen” with a strong A- CinemaScore, high praise compared to its 40% average from critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
