Another weekend, another list of the highest-grossing films in cinemas. We bring you the Box Office Top 5 Countdown.
Dropping down hard from the second to the fifth place is the Brad Pitt space movie ‘Ad Astra’.
Clip: ‘Ad Astra’
“We have what looks like unidentified rovers approaching our mission. Possible pirate activity.”
“We need back up asap. We are being ambushed.”
Quote: Brad Pitt
“Ad Astra means to the stars. It’s the.. it’s half of the logo for NASA which is, through hardship to the stars. I don’t remember the Latin. I love the genre, and I think James Gray came up with something that is a really strong addition to the sci-fi genre. And then it packages this partial action film with this real investigation of self in the search of the father. And I think that is what I was most drawn to in the character.”
Scaring its way to the fourth place is the horror ‘It: Chapter Two’.

“Help me. Help me.”
Quote: Jessica Chastain & Jay Ryan
JC: “The first film, as Andy said yesterday, is a film that is about unifying believe and love. And this film is a lot of trauma and this group of people, these losers, as they called themselves twenty-seven years earlier, have kind of gone through their lives, in a bit of a fog, because they don’t remember certain things of their childhood. And they haven’t, they’re not, or traumas of their childhood, and they’re not processing them. So they are not actually living healthy lives when we meet them.”
JR: “And it becomes about the power of unity, as they come back together. And that helps them heal their traumas. It’s almost like they’ve all been waiting for these last twenty-seven years, for that something that they didn’t quite know was gonna heal them, but this is it.”
And Jennifer Lopez is climbing up from the fifth to the third place in ‘Hustlers’.
“These Wall Street guys. Do you see what they did to this country? They stole from everybody. Hard-working people lost everything. And not one of these douchebags went to jail.”
“The game is rigged, and it does not reward people who play by the rules. And it’s like robbing the bank, except you get the keys. Are you in?”
Quote: Jennifer Lopez
“It is probably the hardest.. one of the hardest thing I’ve ever done for a movie. It’s really acrobatic. It’s really athletic. These girls, you know, even Cardi who has done this is real life told me.. And she is like; I am really good at it. And I’m like; are you? You have to teach me because I am just learning. But it was super hard. The training was really.. it was like bang you up training, bruises everywhere training.”
Opening on the first spot, but slipped down to this week’s number two, it’s ‘Downton Abbey’.
