The box office can’t crack this ‘Smile’

It’s still coming up smiling.

For the second week in a row, “Smile” continued to dazzle at the box office.

On Friday, it took in over $5.3 million, according to IMDB’s Box Office Mojo. The horror flick is projected to take in $16.8 million this weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter. So far, it’s pulled in more than $52.6 million worldwide since its Sept. 30 debut.

“Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile,” the live-action/CGI musical comedy based on the best-selling book series by Bernard Waber, crawled its way to second place, with earnings of over $3.5 million in its premiere.

The Sony film, which The Washington Post said, “will melt even the most coldblooded heart,” is slated to take home $11 to $12 million on its opening weekend, according to Variety.

The murder mystery “Amsterdam,” starring Christian Bale and Margot Robbie, landed in third with $2.6 million.

Inspired by a real-life 1930s conspiracy, the period piece is the “worst movie of the year,” Post critic Johnny Oleksinski wrote, calling it “the worst movie of the year” despite its Oscar-caliber cast.

“The Woman King,” which The Economist said, “may revive the historical action genre,” moved up a notch this week to fourth place, with sales of over $1.3 million.

Olivia Wilde’s psychological thriller “Don’t Worry Darling,” which was in second place last week, moved down to fifth, with a take of over $1.1 million.
