Kingsman: The Golden Circle snuck away with the weekend box office crown for the second week running, according to industry figures released on Monday.
The espionage comedy narrowly edged out freaky horror sensation, It.
With takings of $16.93 million, Kingsman sees a British spy organization join forces with its American counterpart to take on a new global threat.
But despite a star-studded cast featuring Colin Firth, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry and even Elton John, it took less than half of last week’s $39 million earnings.
Meanwhile, It — starring Bill Skarsgard as a creepy clown who terrorizes a sleepy Maine town — was a close second with earnings of $16.9 million.
Battle Of The Sexes ($3.4 million)
American Assassin ($3.3 million)
Home Again ($1.7 million)
Til Death Do Us Part ($1.5 million)
Mother! ($1.4 million)
