Hotel Transylvania 3 Tops Weekend Box Office While Skyscraper Falls Flat

(LOS ANGELES) — “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation” has checked into the No. 1 spot at the box office in its opening weekend and left the Dwayne Johnson action thriller, “Skyscraper,” in the dust.

Sony Pictures estimates Sunday that the animated family movie earned $ 44.1 million from North American theaters.

It easily beat out Johnson’s “Skyscraper,” which remained earthbound in its first weekend in North America. The Universal Pictures film brought in only $ 25.5 million domestically. “Skyscraper” cost a reported $ 125 million to produce.

Second place went to Disney and Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” which brought in an additional $ 28.8 million in its second weekend, down 62 percent from last week.

And the coming of age film “Eighth Grade” scored top marks in limited release with $ 252,284 from four theaters.

Watch Dwayne Johnson in New 'Skyscraper' Trailer; Here's Everything We Know

Dwayne Johnson is on a terrific roll right now. He's developed a likable big-screen presence and has chosen projects that allow him to shine as a heroic leading man. While he's not afraid of roles that poke self-aware fun at his macho reputation — witness Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle — he's equally happy to embrace stereotypes, as long as they have feature some twists and turns to familiar formulas.

That appears to be the case with Skyscraper. Sure, he's a heroic leading…
