'Alien: Covenant' Storms Its Way To The Top Of The Box Office

Alien: Covenant managed to dethrone Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 from the top spot on the box office in its opening weekend.

"Landing in second place is a very different kind of outer space film with Disney/Marvel's lighthearted 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' crossing the $700 million mark at the worldwide box office."
