‘Gran Turismo’ tops ‘Barbie’ at North American box office with $17.3M opening

Gran Turismo was the No. 1 movie in North America, earning $17.3 million in receipts over the weekend.

Directed by Neill Blomkamp and starring Orlando Bloom and David Harbour, Gran Turismo was scheduled for release nationwide Aug. 11, but was delayed due to the actors strike and the cast declining to do any press for the film. The studio hosted two weekends of sneak previews and fan screenings to gain interest before deciding to debut the film on Aug. 25.

Coming in at No. 2 was Barbie with $17.1 million, followed by Blue Beetle at No. 3 with $12.8 million, Oppenheimer at No. 4 with $9 million and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem at No. 5 with $6.1 million.
