WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Angel Has Fallen repeats atop the chart with 14.8MM, which was pretty much destined during the traditionally dead Labor Day Weekend.It may or may not have recouped itsbproduction budget (depending on which estimate you believe), and there aren't overseas numbers yet to determine the fateof this franchise. Good Boys places with 12.1MM and looks like a solid late summer hit, perhaps a bit surprising for an R-rated comedy.  The Lion King shows with another 9.3MM as it cruises past 1.5billion worldwide. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw takes the fourth slot with 8.2MM, but the real story is the near 100MM taken in from China over the past week.  Overcomer rounds out the Top Five with 7.8MM and a 19MM total against a 5MM production budget for the faith-based drama.
