    Sony's long-awaited and controversial Ghostbusters reboot opened in theaters on Friday in the US. The first-weekend projections are now in, and the action-comedy is expected to make $46 million, according to Deadline. This is a "tad higher" than the Hollywood site expected, it said.
    "This is the biggest opening for a live-action comedy in over a year and we reached a wide audience that's both new and nostalgic," Sony marketing chief Josh Greenstein said. "Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones made it fresh."
    [​IMG]Greenstein said he's also optimistic about next weekend. "We have room to run as we are the only live-action comedy in the market," he stated.
    Ghostbusters could not topple Universal's hit animated film, The Secret Life of Pets, which stayed perched at the No. 1 position that it's held since opening a week ago.
    Here are the top US box office films for the weekend of July 15-17, according to studio-reported estimates posted on Deadline:

    1. The Secret Life Of Pets -- $50.56 million
    2. Ghostbusters -- $46 million
    3. The Legend Of Tarzan -- $11.1 million
    4. Finding Dory -- $11 million
    5. Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates -- $7.5 million
    6. The Purge: Election Day -- $6.08 million
    7. Central Intelligence --$5.3 million
    8. The Infiltrator -- $5.3 million
    9. The BFG -- $3.7 million
    10. Independence Day: Resurgence -- $3.45 million
    Head to Deadline for a full breakdown of this weekend's US box office performance.
