Like an officer during field camp, Ah Boys To Men 4 appeared from its guise and snatched the rifle from an unwitting Thor: Ragnarok. But instead of a rifle, it’s the box office crown. The Jack Neo-directed fourth instalment of the NS saga opened to a huge $1.9 million, proving that audiences are clearly not bored of the Ah Boys yet.

Suburbicon (26% Rotten, 4.8/10)? More like Su-bore-bicon or Su-bomb-bicon. The star-studded crime comedy boasts some fantastic talent, including Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac, and the prolific writing duo Joel and Ethan Coen. Sadly, it’s now being labelled as director George Clooney’s worst film to date. This misguided mess grossed only $31,500 and debuted at a terrible 11th place.

Move aside Avengers, it’s time for the Justice League. Even though a number one spot is inevitable, DC’s superhero team-up faces stiff competition from Ah Boys To Men 4 and Thor: Ragnarok, in which both films will have a salient effect on how much money it eventually makes. Regardless, it looks surely set to continue the positive trend laid by Wonder Woman.
Other new releases include thriller All I See Is You, Thai horror The Promise, and local drama The Kid From The Big Apple 2: Before We Forget.
