In second place was The Call of the Wild which earned $24.8 million. That beat expectation but the film’s budget is a reported $135 million making this an uphill fight for the film.

Brahms: The Boys II edged out the competition to come in fourth with an estimated $5.9 million. With a “C-” CinemaScore and a 40% audience score on RottenTomatoes, the film should drop quickly.
