The worldwide box office has remained unchanged over the weekend. With “Hobbs & Shaw”, the “Fast and Furious” saga continues its four-week winning streak, adding up to $45 million to its gross, according to Comscore.

In spite of its impressive cast, the “Lion King” reboot trails just behind, while Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” comes in third for a second consecutive week.


“Hobbs & Shaw,” starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, has pulled in an additional $45.3 million, bringing its total gross to over $700 million, garnering the blockbuster the distinction of being the year’s first film to top the box office for four weekends, with “Captain Marvel” and “Avengers: Endgame” having only managed to head the listing for three weeks.


The rest of the podium also remains the same as last week, with “The Lion King” coming in second. The live-action remake of the Disney classic grossed an extra $27.3 million, bringing its total to over $1.5 billion worldwide.

The latest Tarantino, for its part, continues to occupy third place, with Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie continuing to attract audiences. “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” made an extra $25.6 million for its sixth weekend in theaters (it was released on July 26 in the United States). Quentin Tarantino’s ninth opus has thus grossed a total of $280 million around the globe.
