NEW YORK (AP) - The female-led reboot "Ocean's 8" stole the box-office crown from "Solo: A Star Wars Story" with $41.6 million in ticket sales at U.S. and Canada theaters over the weekend, according to final figures Monday.

The Warner Bros.-Village Roadshow production, which cost about $70 million to make, debuted slightly above expectations and set a high mark for the "Ocean's" franchise, not accounting for inflation. Reviews were so-so for the gender-swap installment, starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Anne Hathaway. The audience, which was 69 percent female, gave it a B-plus CinemaScore.

The fast-falling "Solo" slid to second with $15.7 million in its third weekend. The horror thriller "Hereditary," starring Toni Collette, debuted in fourth place with $13.6 million, setting a company record for A24, the indie distributor behind releases like "The Witch" and "Moonlight." The feature-film directing debut of Ari Aster, "Hereditary" has been hailed as the year's scariest movie since its debut at the Sundance Film Festival, though audiences gave "Hereditary" a D-plus CinemaScore.

Less successful was "Hotel Artemis," starring Jodie Foster. The Global Road release, also starring Sterling K. Brown, Dave Bautista and Charlie Day, flopped with $3.2 million.
