While this $97 million production has a ways to go to profitability, all the seeds are there for this racing biopic to leg out. It has awards buzz, strong overseas appeal, and an A+ on CinemaScore. "Ford v Ferrari" is now the first film with a wide release of over 3,000 screens since "Avengers: Endgame" to earn that top grade from CinemaScore.

Unfortunately, Fox's box office success this weekend did not extend to Sony and their "Charlie's Angels" revival. The film was expected to open to No. 2 on the charts with an opening in the mid-teens. Instead, the film is now estimated for an $8.5 million opening against a $48 million budget.

Whether it be for The Machinist, American Hustle, Batman Begins, The Fighter, or Vice, the Oscar winner has repeatedly fluctuated his weight to fit his latest role. But after losing 70 pounds to go from Vice President Dick Cheney in Vice to racer Ken Miles in Ford v Ferrari, Bale says he’ll no longer be making these dramatic changes.

Ford v Ferrari easily ran Charlie's Angels and the rest of the competition off the road at the weekend box office , grossing a better-than-expected $ 31 million Conversely, Sony's Charlie's Angels crashed and burned in its domestic opening with .6 million, becoming the third high-profile reboot or sequel

Audience reception was relatively positive with a B+ on CinemaScore, but tepid reviews likely weighed "Charlie's Angels" down with a 59% Rotten Tomatoes score. Sony's financial blow will be lessened thanks to co-financing by Perfect World and 2.0 Entertainment, but that's no comfort to a box office market that has seen three box office flops in as many weeks, with "Angels" joining "Terminator: Dark Fate" and "Doctor Sleep."

The rest of the box office numbers aren't very impressive either. "Charlie's Angels" is vying for the No. 2 spot with the second weekends of Lionsgate's "Midway" and Paramount/Walden's "Playing With Fire," both of which are projected for totals around $8.5 million. "Playing With Fire" has a 10-day total of $25.6 million while "Midway" has a 10-day total of $35 million.
