After dominating the charts last weekend, Lucy remained unstoppable this week and dropped by 26%, adding 11,914 admissions for a fantastic total of 38,228 in just two weeks. This is yet another female-driven vehicle that’s performing admirably this summer. Second place went to new release Into the Storm, which opened well for its genre with 9,170 admissions. […]
