First Man [FIRSM] declined 46% from its debut to $8.8 million and fifth place. 

The Hate U Give [HTUGV] moved up to sixth with $7.5 million in its first weekend of wide release.  The audience was 64% female and 51% over the age of 25.

Expanding to 802 theaters, Old Man & The Gun [OMATG] took tenth with $2.1 million.  The Sisters Brothers [TSBRO] also expanded to 1141 theaters, but finished outside the top 12 with $0.7 million.
