    FRIDAY AM UPDATE: Leading the charge on Thursday night was Lionsgate's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, which brought in $760,000 last night from ~2,000 locations. This is just a bit below the $855k the first film brought in last year prior to its $28.5 million opening. Sony's Only the Brave took in $305K from Thursday previews shows starting at 7pm.

  4. WB and New Line's 'It' Propels September 2017 to Record Heights
    September 2017 saw record returns with calendar grosses topping $695 million, falling just shy of becoming the first September to ever total $700 million at the domestic box office. Leading the way was Warner Bros. and New Line's massive hit It, which delivered record numbers of its own and accounted for a massive 41.2% of the month's total gross. September is also the first month since April to show an improvement over the same month in 2016, with September grosses finishing 18.3% higher t...
  5. 'Blade Runner 2049' Struggles to $31.5 Million Opening Weekend
    Warner Bros.'s release of Blade Runner 2049 isn't getting October off to the kind of start September saw one month ago. The dystopian sequel, arriving 35 years after the original, crash landed over its three-day opening, falling well below even the most modest of expectations. At the same time, Fox's The Mountain Between Us didn't exactly light the world on fire in its attempt at counter-programming, though it did top Mojo's pre-weekend forecast, while Lionsgate's release of My Little Pony ...

  7. Weekend #1 Up for Grabs as Record September at the Box Office Comes to an End
    As a record September comes to an end, it's a race for number one with three films separated by a mere $310k. Based on estimates, it's a return to #1 for WB and New Line's It, but hot on its heels is Universal's American Made along with Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Otherwise, Sony's Flatliners debuted on life support, Novus's Til Death Do Us Part found its way into the top ten and Pure Flix's A Question of Faith finished on the outside looking in. With just over $300k separating ...
  8. 'American Made' and 'Flatliners' Target Spots in the Weekend Box Office Top Five
    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: Universal's American Made brought in an estimated $6 million on Friday and will be in a very close race for #1 at the weekend box office, not only with last weekend's #1 film, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, but with WB and New Line's It, all of which are looking to finish anywhere from $16.5-17 million for the weekend. Sony's Flatliners is, well, flatlining as the film brought in an estimated $2.1 million on Friday and is expected to finish around $5.5-6 million for th...
  9. 'Kingsman 2' Finishes #1 as September Grosses Near Record High
    The weekend's new releases fell shy of Mojo's weekend forecast, but Kingsman: The Golden Circle still managed to debut larger than the original, finishing in the #1 spot. Unfortunately, The LEGO Ninjago Film fell well short of expectations as did Friend Request, which delivered a mere $2.4 million opening. There were, however, some bright spots among limited release titles as Battle of the Sexes and Victoria and Abdul delivered strong opening results as September's calendar grosses continu...
