Ryan Gosling’s reboot of “The Fall Guy,” took first place in its debut at the box office, according to IMDB’s Box Office Mojo.

The action flick, starring Gosling as a cocky stunt double for a famous actor, raked in $10.48 million on Friday. The movie, loosely based on the Lee Majors-led 1980s TV series, was expected to garner $28 million for its opening weekend after falling short of earlier estimates, according to the Hollywood Reporter. That’s down from the initially anticipated $30 million to $35 million.

The Post gave “The Fall Guy” two out of four stars, calling it “mediocre” and “rather annoying.”
