Last weekend's Top Twenty movies

So The Predator had a disappointing first week here in South Africa, unlike in the States, where it went straight to number 1, albeit with the lowest gross for any live-action film debuting in over 4000 cinemas.
Predator was beating to the post by both Hotel Transylvania (back on top) and The Nun, which is doing very well both here and stateside.
Of the week's other new releases, animated war-and-puppies story Sgt. Stubby landed at number 9, while Billionaire Boys Club and Submergence were in the bottom 20.
Things are more interesting if we look at the per-cinema earnings, where BBB actually beat The Predator, unlike the USA where it tanked. Local crime drama Ellen continues to do well, coming second-best per screen, while
Crazy Rich Asians continues making money on reduced screens. Not sure why it didn't get a wider rollout, given the per-screen earnings.
