The Predator returned to earth much to the horrified delight of the biggest audience this weekend at the domestic box office, throwing a mercy “Hail Mary” to the rest of the competition, who didn’t’ have a prayer going against The Nun, who remained a formidable, faithful challenger as she nodded a polite (but horrifying) hello to all those requesting A Simple Favor, which turned out to be an easy choice for audiences who love a good mystery. White Boy Rick enjoyed his first weekend out and about while those Crazy Rich Asians were still enjoying their richly-deserved accolades.
