The horror film The Black Phone debuted in fourth place, earning $23.4 million.

Rounding out the top five was Lightyear, starring the voice of Chris Evans in the role of Buzz Lightyear, taking in an extra $17.7 million for a two-week total of $88.8 million. ~Alexandra Heilbron

    I found the movie Elvis very informative but I didn't like Tom Hanks in it. I hope he doesn't win any awards for it.
