NEW YORK (CBSMiami/AP) — Some new faces showed up at the top of the list of box office performances this weekend.

“Ocean’s 8,” the female-led overall of the starry “Ocean’s” franchise, opened with $41.5 million at the box office, taking the weekend’s top spot from the fast-falling “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

According to estimates Sunday, “Ocean’s 8” set a new best for the franchise, not accounting for inflation.

The three previous “Ocean’s” films all debuted with between $36-39 million in the last decade.

“Solo” slid to second place with $15.2 million on its third weekend.

The weekend’s second biggest opening was the acclaimed indie horror thriller “Hereditary.”

Though audiences gave the notoriously scary film a D-plus CinemaScore, it set a company record for boutique distributor A24 with a $13 million debut.
