Box-office eclipse: Hollywood has worst weekend in 16 years

That left the Samuel Jackson-Ryan Reynolds action-comedy “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” to top all films for the second week with an estimated $10.1 million in ticket sales.

The horror film holdover “Annabelle: Creation” followed in second with $7.4 million in its third weekend. The “Conjuring” spinoff” has now grossed $77.9 million in total.

The Weinstein Co. animated release “Leap!” was one of the few new films to hit theaters.

It earned a scant $5 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.
