Hollywood’s dismal summer whimpered to an end this weekend, with a movie in its third week taking the number one spot.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard” was estimated to deal $13.4 million in tickets over the four-day holiday of the holiday weekend. It has grossed $58 million over two weeks plus this weekend.
