Kevin Hart's new movie 'The Upside' exceeded expectations and dethroned 'Aquaman' from top of the box office

The Kevin Hart-Bryan Cranston dramedy "The Upside" won the domestic weekend box office, taking in an estimated $19.6 million.




That knocks "Aquaman" from the top spot after being there for three-straight weekends.




"The Upside" had an impressive win, exceeding box office projections that had the movie opening around $10 million-$15 million.




The movie was originally to be released by The Weinstein Company before the sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein crippled the company. Lantern Entertainment took over the title when the company bought remaining Weinstein Company assets in a bankruptcy auction in July 2018.




STXfilms was brought on to release the movie, it marks the first box office win for the company since it launched in 2014.




"Aquaman" has now earned over $1 billion at the global box office, marking the first DC Extended Universe title to hit that milestone.



"Aquaman" has finally been taken down from the number one spot at the domestic box office after being perched there for three straight weeks, and the movie that did it was the unlikely movie to pull it off.
STXfilms' dramedy "The Upside" — starring Bryan Cranston as a paralyzed billionaire who hires a recently paroled convict, played by Kevin Hart — won the weekend box office with an estimated $19.6 million.
It's not only a remarkable feat that a $37.5 million-budgeted character study took down "Aquaman," the biggest movie in the world since the holidays. "The Upside" faced tough odds of even making it to screens.
