WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Ford v Ferrari tops the chart with 31MM, and given the relative drought of Oscar contenders in a biz that allegedly keeps moving the awards season up, the fact that it plays well with older moviegoers gives it a shot at legs into the holiday season. It made alnost as much total as Midway, which places with 8.8MM on a 51 percent drop and a 35MM domestic total that does not bode well for a 100MM-budget movie. The re-rebooted Charlie's Angels shows with 8.6MM; given that the 2000 vesrion opened to 40MM, this is bad, even against a reasonable 50MM budget. Playing With Fire takes the fourth slot with 8.55MM, which means it could beat the Angels when the estimates become actuals. Last Christmas rounds out the Top Five with 6.7MM and its 35.6MM worldwide gross to date is not too bad against a 30MM budget.
