WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw repeats atop the chart with 25.4MM on a 58 percent drop. That's not great, but it crosses 100MM and 332MM worldwide, which means it may do well enough to turn the spin-off into its own mini-franchise. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark places with 20.8MM against a reported 28MM budget, a solid debut tho that budget is a tad pricey. The remade Lion King shows with another 20MM on a 48 percent drop and has over 1.34 billion worldwide. Dora and the Lost City of Gold debuts in the fourth slot with 17MM against a 49MM budget, suggesting Hollywood sat on this idea for years too long. Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood rounds out the Top Five with 11.6MM and crosses 100MM in North America. Below the fold, both The Art of Racing in the Rain and The Kitchen open disappointingly.
