But those pups from Paw Patrol weren't far behind.

Ryan Reynolds' Free Guy maintained the top spot at the box office for the second week in a row.

The movie, which stars Reynolds as Guy, an NPC — a non-player character – in a video game, managed to hold off the hounding from competition Paw Patrol, bringing in $18.79 million across 4,165 screens.

The animated children's film, Paw Patrol, debuted at No. 2, bringing in $13 million across more than 3,100 screens.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson held on to No. 3 with Disney's Jungle Cruise, while Don't Breathe 2 took fourth.

The Aretha Franklin biopic – Respect – starring Jennifer Hudson took fifth, while James Gunn's The Suicide Squad was sixth.

The Protégé (a thriller starring Michael Keaton and Maggie Q), The Night House, and the Hugh Jackman starring Reminiscence (the latter of which was also available on HBO Max), all debuted this week, and took seventh, eighth, and ninth at the box office, according to weekend estimates from Comscore.

Black Widow managed to stay in the top 10, landing tenth over the weekend.
