Box Office: ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Rises to No. 1 With $21 Million Debut
Angel Has Fallen,” the third chapter in Lionsgate and Millenium’s action franchise starring Gerard Butler, had a stronger opening weekend than expected, collecting $21.25 million during its first three days of release.

Those ticket sales were enough to top domestic box office charts, bumping last weekend’s champ, Universal’s comedy “Good Boys,” to second place. Starring Jacob Tremblay, “Good Boys” generated $11.75 million in its sophomore outing, boosting its domestic total to $41.4 million.

Angel Has Fallen” nearly matched the $21.6 million debut of its predecessor, 2016’s “London Has Fallen.” The first film, 2013’s “Olympus Has Fallen,” kicked off with $30.4 million.

“We wanted to give enough distance from the big summer tentpole films,” Lionsgate’s president of domestic distribution David Spitz said of the movie’s late August release. “We had the opportunity, and the movie really delivered.”

Opening weekend crowds were virtually split across gender lines (51% male), while almost 60% of moviegoers

Friday Box Office: ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Tops the Debut-Heavy Weekend

Angel Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman, arrived in theaters this week and has immediately taken the top spot. This is the third film in the Fallen franchise, which has been led by Butler since 2013's Olympus Has Fallen. Considering it was a big weekend for debuts (especially those in the mid- to low budget range), with faith-based film Overcomer and horror-thriller Ready or Not also arriving on the scene, Angel's standout performance is especially noteworthy. It's likely a combination of audience curiosity in seeing where the Fallen franchise would go in this …

Box Office: ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Heads for $20 Million Opening Weekend

  • Variety
Lionsgate and Millennium’s “Angel Has Fallen” is performing above expectations, taking in $7.9 million in Friday’s domestic ticket sales as it heads to a projected $20 million opening weekend.

Early estimates originally placed the third installment of the “Fallen” series within the $12 million to $16 million range, but a solid 95% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes and some strong star power from leads Morgan Freeman and Gerard Butler appear to be bolstering its box office appearance.

Previous iterations within the franchise performed similarly, with 2016’s “London Has Fallen” opening to $21.6 million and 2013’s “Olympus Has Fallen” nabbing a higher $30 million.

Directed by Ric Roman Waugh, “Angel Has Fallen” follows secret service agent Mike Banning (Butler) who is falsely accused of an assassination attempt on U.S. President Allan Trumbull (Freeman). Also starring are Jada Pinkett Smith, Tim Blake Nelson, Piper Perabo and Nick Nolte.

‘Angel Has Fallen’ to Dominate Modest Box Office With $20 Million Weekend
Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman are leading the way at the North American box office with “Angel Has Fallen” on its way to about $20 million, early estimates showed Friday.

Should forecasts hold, “Angel Has Fallen” will take in about double the next title, Universal’s second weekend of raunchy comedy “Good Boys” with about $10 million. “Good Boys,” which appears to have broken the recent comedy slump at multiplexes, will wind up the weekend with more than $40 million in its first 10 days.

A quartet of titles will be battling for third place in the $7 million to $9 million range with the opening of Sony-Affirm’s faith-based “Overcomer” as the early leader, followed by Disney’s sixth weekend of “The Lion King” as it heads to $510 million, Universal’s fourth frame of “Hobbs & Shaw” and Fox Searchlight’s launch of horror-comedy “Ready or Not.”

Lionsgate Bets on Durability of 'Angel Has Fallen' to Keep Franchise Going

Lionsgate Bets on Durability of 'Angel Has Fallen' to Keep Franchise Going
It may have escaped many people that Gerard Butler has starred in a consistently successful action franchise over the last six years. It was 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen that introduced audiences to Butler’s Mike Banning, a Secret Service agent long fallen from the agency’s good graces who redeems himself after saving the president when the White House is attacked by North Korean terrorists. Grossing $170 million worldwide, the 2016 sequel London Has Fallen, which moved the action overseas, did even better with $205 million in worldwide box office.

This week’s Angel Has Fallen looks to keep things going....

Movie Review – Angel Has Fallen (2019)

Angel Has Fallen, 2019.

Directed by Ric Roman Waugh.

Starring Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lance Reddick, Tim Blake Nelson, Piper Perabo, Nick Nolte, Danny Huston, Mark Arnold, and Frederick Schmidt.

Synopsis:

Secret Service Agent Mike Banning is framed for the attempted assassination of the President and must evade his own agency and the FBI as he tries to uncover the real threat.

After surviving two huge terrorist attacks, Gerard Butler’s Secret Service agent Mike Banning returns to the big screen in Angel Has Fallen, the second sequel to Olympus Has Fallen that slightly changes up the premise to offer something different to audiences. It’s an entertaining enough action film that tries to emphasize its characters and the struggles they deal with, but ultimately doesn’t live up to its potential due to its predictable plot and somewhat confusing action sequences.

In the third outing of the franchise,

Gerard Butler’s ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Rises to $1.5 Million at Thursday Box Office
Angel Has Fallen,” the action sequel starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman, earned $1.5 million at the box office Thursday from preview screenings at 2,600 locations. It opens on 3,286 screens this weekend.

Lionsgate is releasing “Angel Has Fallen” following up from the success of both “Olympus Has Fallen” in 2013 and “London Has Fallen” in 2016. It’s the widest release this weekend as the summer comes to a close, with Fox Searchlight’s horror and thriller “Ready or Not” having already opened on Wednesday.

The studio is projecting “Angel” to open in the low to mid teen range this weekend, with independent trackers estimating approximately $13 million. For a comparison, “London Has Fallen” earned only $850,000 in its debut opposite a then record-setting weekend for Disney’s “Zootopia,” but it ultimately raked in a $21.6 million opening. The original “Olympus Has Fallen” opened to $30.3 million and grossed $170.2 million worldwide.

Box Office: 'Angel Has Fallen' Delivers $1.5M in Previews
The testosterone-fueled Angel Has Fallen commenced its box office run with $1.5 million in Thursday evening previews.

Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman are joined by Nick Nolte in the third installment of Millennium's action franchise, which is being distributed by Lionsgate.

Angel Has Fallen should easily top the penultimate weekend of summer ahead of holdover Good Boys and new entry, Ready or Not, with about $15 million.

Still, it doesn't look like it can match the openings of Olympus Has Fallen ($30.4 million) and London Has Fallen ($21.6 million), even though its preview gross was higher than either of those titles....

UK box office preview: can ‘Angel Has Fallen’ challenge Tarantino?
Gerard Butler-starring threequel looks to displace Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood.

Lionsgate’s Angel Has Fallen, the action thriller starring Gerard Butler, rolls out wide in the UK this weekend to give Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood a run for its money.

Raising the Bar on the Fallen Series with Angel Has Fallen

Secret Service agents live in a constant state of high alert. ?At any given second, they have to be ready to thwart a near-infinite number of potential threats that could come from any country, any group, or any person, without warning. ?

Their sacrifices?the persistent danger, the merciless demands on body and soul, the stress on their relationships?are rarely recognized publicly, but they don?t do it for the recognition. ?They do it because they are driven to serve the highest office of the land and the bedrock of democracy. ?

That kind of devotion has always defined Mike Banning in the movie Angel has Fallen. On the job, he is a cunning, dogged, laser-focused patriot, but he is also a self-questioning and at times a self-deprecating man who has his dark corners of jagged regrets and frustrations. ?

He has done and seen it all. ?In Olympus Has Fallen, he

Angel Has Fallen Director Talks Giving Mike Banning New Life [Exclusive]

Angel Has Fallen Director Talks Giving Mike Banning New Life [Exclusive]
Gerard Butler returns as agent Mike Banning in Angel Has Fallen this weekend. This is the third entry in the "Fallen" series, which also includes Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen. This time around, the series brought in some new blood in the form of Ric Roman Waugh. The stuntman-turned-director is at the helm for the action flick, which is one of the final franchise entries in a summer that has been littered with franchise entries.

Yet, Ric Roman Waugh didn't want to just sit on his hands and deliver the same old thing this time around. The filmmaker felt the need to reinvent the series heading into its third installment by focusing on the character of Mike Banning, who isn't invincible. He's capable of being hurt, and he's also on the run from his own government this time, which flips the script on the first two movies.

Angel Has Fallen – Review

As the start of school snatches away a good chunk of the moviegoers, the Summer blockbuster annual carnival is rolling up their cinema canvas midway. The superheroes have sent their spandex to the dry cleaners, that really, really “fast and furious” duo have put their super-charged vehicles in storage, and those raunchy R-rated comedies are circling the Red Boxes. Ah, but one guy’s not ready to leave the multiplex and make room for the award contenders. Why, it’s that growling, “movie macho” triple-alpha male Gerard Butler in his own “franchise” role. Or perhaps this is more of a trilogy (or “hat-trick” or triple play for you sports geeks). Let’s follow the “domino” line of the series. In 2013 Olympus Has Fallen, three years later London Has Fallen, and now Angel Has Fallen (“…and they can’t get up”…well with Gb on the job…).

Angel Has Fallen Review

The Has Fallen trilogy is the only trilogy to have a different studio produce each installment. That should give you a clue as to how the latest one will turn out. The studios didn’t want it. We didn’t want it. So why why was this smarmy thriller even made?

The answer is money. For those of you who pay to see deep voices rattle off shallow dialogue, as well as watch macho men do macho things, than this is the series for you. For the rest of us, however, most of it’s pretty dumb. The problem is that the franchise has passed its expiration date without adding different ingredients to spice things up.

Olympus Has Fallen was Die Hard in the White House. London Has Fallen was Die Hard in London. And Angel Has Fallen is Die Hard in West Virginia. As you can see, it’s repetitive.

Lance Reddick on His ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Role and Yale Acting Classmate Paul Giamatti

Lance Reddick on His ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Role and Yale Acting Classmate Paul Giamatti
Lance Reddick, known for tough-cop roles on such shows as “The Wire” and “Fringe” — and as a city councilman who used to be a tough cop in “Bosch” — will play the director of the Secret Service in “Angel Has Fallen,” the third installment of the “Olympus Has Fallen” series, coming to theaters Aug. 23. When Reddick was younger, though, his dreams were of composing music, not acting. Here, he describes his preparation for his role in “Angel Has Fallen” and his unexpected path to becoming an actor.

What surprised you most when researching your “Angel Has Fallen” character?

I had to talk to senior-level ex-Secret Service agents. Before I signed on to it, I was a little hesitant to play another “top cop” character. But this was a different animal. One of the things that was amazing to me was understanding how stressful it is because you have to be on all the time.

‘Ready or Not,’ ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Enter Box Office Race

  • Variety
Three more contenders are joining what has lately been a hostile box office arena. Can anyone emerge from August victorious?

Fox Searchlight’s “Ready or Not,” a black comedy about a diabolical game of hide-and-seek, will debut in 2,244 North American theaters on Wednesday. The low-budget film is expected to earn upwards of $6.5 million over the weekend and $8 million to $12 million during its first five days of release. Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, “Ready or Not” stars Samara Weaving as a newlywed who finds out her in-laws intend to stalk and kill her. Unlike the overtly political themes in Universal’s controversial “The Hunt,” “Ready or Not” takes a more fantasy-oriented approach to hunting humans for sport.

In a positive review, Variety’s chief film critic Peter Debruge called the film a “deranged and darkly comedic thriller [that] packs subversive pleasures aplenty.” Debruge is not alone in his praise. The

Angel Has Fallen Review

Gerard Butler shoots and fights his way out of a frame-up in the overly familiar Angel Has Fallen.

“We’re lions,” says Wade Jennings (Danny Huston) to his friend Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) during the surprisingly reflective first act of Angel Has Fallen. We’ve met Banning before in the two previous installments of this series, Olympus Has Fallen (2013) and London Has Fallen (2016), while Jennings is a new addition to the cast we're meant to instantly be invested in. Apparently he and Banning served together in Iraq before the latter became a longstanding Secret Service agent (Jennings runs a private military contracting firm). Both men are getting older and neither is quite ready to accept that they may no longer be physically or mentally equipped for battle. But Banning also isn't ready to settle into the desk job that's being offered to him as Director of the Secret Service.
