“Geostorm” should take second place, but everything else is doing rather poorly.
Other movies offer star power galore but is that enough to make a mark in a weekend with far too many movies?
Jackie Chan’s “The Foreigner” also does better than expected but settles for third place. “Marshall” and “Professor Marston” represent a bad weekend for biopics.
The Blumhouse horror flick will beat “Blade Runner 2049” for first place while Jackie Chan’s “The Foreigner” should place third.
Blumhouse’s “Happy Death Day,” Jackie Chan’s “The Foreigner” and Chadwick Boseman as “Marshall” take on “Blade Runner 2049.”
The Denis Villeneuve-directed sequel, released 35 years after the original movie, only made $31.5 mill. this weekend, far below most expectations. “My Little Pony: The Movie” also opened weakly in fourth place.
Despite positive tracking and reviews, the sci-fi sequel may not make more than $40 mill. this weekend. Meanwhile, weaker offerings “My Little Pony” and “Mountain Between Us” might be fighting it out for second place.
Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford are brought together for Denis Villeneuve’s long-awaited sequel that’s receiving rave reviews. “My Little Pony” and “The Mountain Between Us” probably won’t make similar waves.
It looks like a tight race for first place with all three movies estimated to make around $17 mill. for the weekend, but it’s unlikely that Tom Cruise’s “American Made” will be #1.
With Tom Cruise’s “American Made” doing well, and other movies dropping more than expected, it will be very close to see what wins the weekend. It definitely won’t be “Flatliners.”
Cruise reteams with his “Edge of Tomorrow” director Doug Liman, while Ellen Page stars in a remake of the 1990 horror fave. Can either defeat the 1-2 punch of “Kingsman” and “It”?
Kingsman’s $39 million is lower than projections but still the 5th highest Sept. opener. With $266 million, “It” is the highest grossing horror film of all time (sans inflation).
Warners’ The LEGO Ninjago Movie not doing nearly as well and is likely to end up in third place to It in its third weekend.
The Stephen King adaptation finally has some competition from Matthew Vaughn’s action sequel and the latest LEGO family film, as well as the horror flick Friend Request.
Its estimated $60 million is a record 2nd weekend for an R-rated movie, but it’s also higher than the Sept. opening record.
With $19.2 million on Friday, New Line’s Stephen King adaptation is looking at a 2nd weekend take of $55 million or more.
The question now is if having a huge blockbuster kicking off the month of Sept. will help the overall box office or will It steamroll over any attempted competition? Two movies will try to enter this extremely intense early fall box office to find out.
Nearly doubling the previous opening record for a horror movie and setting a new Sept. opening record with its opening day gross, Warner Bros’ hit Stephen King adaptation is already turning things around from the weaker summer.
Mama director Andy Muschietti’s adaptation of Stephen King’s coming-of-age horror novel finally hits theaters. While we know it’s going to break and set new records, how much can it possibly make its opening weekend?
There was definitely a good news and bad news scenario at the box office this Labor Day weekend. While it was one of the worst showings for the four-day holiday in two decades, many returning movies still fared well including Lionsgate’s The Hitman’s Bodyguard, the only movie this summer to be #1 at the box office three weekends in a row.
Lionsgate’s The Hitman’s Bodyguard is looking to threepeat with a strong showing over Labor Day, while movies like Wind River and Dunkirk are faring significantly better than new movies Tulip Fever and Hazlo Come Hombre.
There are both new and old movies being released moderately nationwide but nothing new into more than 750 theaters, and only one of the weekend’s new movies even stands a chance at breaking into the Top 5.
With the summer movie season ending this Labor Day, we now look ahead to the last four months of 2017 and what might be the highest grossers of the fall and holiday movie seasons.
In what is being deemed the worst weekend at the box office in 16 years, the Top 12 movies grossed less than $50 million, although the Weinstein Company managed to get two movies into the Top 5.
LIonsgate’s action-comedy The HItman’s Bodyguard will win its second weekend in a row with $3.2 million grossed Friday, but the Weinstein Company might have two movies in the Top 5 with the new Leap! and the expanding Wind River.
Three new movies are getting wide releases on Friday, but none of them look like they have a chance against the movies currently in theaters, as we’re likely to see one of the worst weekends at the box office in more than a decade.
The Samuel L. Jackson-Ryan Reynolds buddy action-comedy fared well with moviegoers in the slower part of the month, but Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, which reteamed him with Channing Tatum for the fourth time, ended up in third place with just $8 million.
With Friday box office estimates in, it’s looking very good that the Samuel L. Jackson, Ryan Reynolds action-comedy will win the weekend by a decent margin over last week’s Annabelle: Creation. Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky is fighting for third against Nolan’s unstoppable Dunkirk.
The box office was down considerably from last year, but there were a couple true standouts, including Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman, which grossed more than $400 million in North America alone to take the summer crown.
The second to last weekend before Labor Day, which signifies the end of the summer season, sees two action-comedies featuring big name stars, though the pairing of Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds is likely to surpass the reunion of Channing Tatum with director Steven Soderbergh.
