In a blow for returning director Steven Soderbergh, his star-studded heist pic Logan Lucky was mowed down at the domestic box office by The Hitman's Bodyguard despite rapturous reviews.
Hitman's Bodyguard also doesn't lack for star power in its two leading men, Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson. Lionsgate's action comedy debuted to a better-than-expected $21.6 million from 3,377 theaters to easily top the weekend box-office chart, although it couldn't do anything to stop overall summer revenue from continuing to tumble as Hollywood and theater owners endured the lowest-grossing weekend of the year to date.
