Coming in right behind the demented clown is the explosive trio of Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham and Idris Elba, who are brought down a peg to second place after leading the list for four weeks straight with their “Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw”, which grossed an extra $19.4 million over the weekend. Since its release in August, the David Leitch caper has accumulated over $719 million worldwide.
