'Ocean's 8' opens with $41.5M to top weekend

Are you planning to see Ocean's 8? It has a remarkable 99 percent "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. (This is, after all, the series in which Julia Roberts once played both her character and herself.) She has a tiny moment of ecstasy, when first trying on the necklace at the heist's center, that's so simultaneously amusing and sexy, you'll wish she'd been born early enough to do a couple dozen screwball comedies.

"Ocean's 8" debuted with a $41.5 million haul - more than the $36 million to $39 million that the three previous, male-fronted "Ocean's" films starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon made during their opening weekends, without adjusting for inflation.

Speaking with Variety on the red carpet of Ocean's 8 premiere, star Sandra Bullock discussed her reaction to the whole backlash surrounding the Paul Feig-directed action-comedy, which led to Leslie Jones leaving social media. "I think for some of our audience, they were like, "What the f-k?" Audiences appear to disagree - the horror film now has a D+ CinemaScore and 64% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, while its critical rating is 94% Fresh.

Disney and Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story is brought in another $15.2 million at the domestic box office and another $11.3 million internationally. The Incredibles 2 is projected to open in roughly 4,200 theaters, while Warner Bros.' Tag is expected to open in 3,300 theaters while the foreign sequel Race 3 from Yash Raj is also expected to open wide.

This image released by A24 shows Toni Collette in a scene from Hereditary. Jodie Foster and Sterling K. Brown star in the action thriller set in the near future. "Hotel Artemis" checked in with a dismal $3.1 million on 2,407 screens. And then "Jurassic World 2" will probably take the crown for its North American debut on June 22, but it may still be a close race between supes and dinos. How exactly did these films perform, and what happened to the hold-overs from weeks past including the deeply troubled Solo: A Star Wars Story?

Third spot went to "Deadpool 2" from 20th Century Fox, at $13.7 million.

Two years ago this weekend, Sony's all-female reboot of "Ghostbusters" launched with $46 million.

Also of note: Focus Features' tender documentary "Won't You Be My Neighbor", about the life of "Mister Rogers" host Fred Rogers, took in $470,000 as it opened on just 29 screens (a better per-screen average than any other top-25 film).
