The film, which stars a former assassin who escaped from the father of Sino-Canadian Simu Liu (Hong Kong superstar Tony Leung), has already grossed $ 144.5 million in US and Canadian theaters.
Action comedy “Free Guy” grossed $ 5.6 million and climbed to second place. Ryan Reynolds plays a simple extra in a video game where he seeks to take control of his destiny and disrupts well-counted mechanics by the creators.
