But in a respectable third place was Universal's "Breaking In".

It's opening in China is again expected to break records and could push the film to over 1.6 billion by the end of the weekend.

The Warner Bros. and New Line comedy also opened domestically with $18.5 million for a combined weekend of $21.4 million. And that has led to a multi-record-breaking box office performance. Meanwhile, Gabrielle Union's "Breaking In" launched in third with US$16.5 million in 2,537 locations. Reviews have been poor, and moviegoers gave it a B CinemaScore. It had the biggest opening in Australia, where it earned $1.5 million on 297 screens. Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, it is now the highest-earning Hollywood film in India.

Rounding out the top five this weekend are Overboard, which brought in $10.1 million, and A Quiet Place, which brought in $6.4 million. Marvel and Disney have high hopes for the movie's prospects in China. The superhero mashup collected another $61 million at the box office, nearly doubling the combined take of the weekend's two big theatrical releases. "Black Panther" still holds the domestic superhero title with $696 million. And it didn't match the $19.5 million opening of Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's Snatched over Mother's Day weekend a year ago.
