Box Office Report For September 6-8


Welcome back to the weekly box office report! As is always the case, each and every Sunday you can expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, the blockbuster horror sequel It: Chapter Two was the only wide new release of note, hoping to be as massive a hit as the first one was two years ago. Was it able to pull off a huge opening weekend? How did other titles do over the frame? Read on below, as we take a look at just that…

Not surprisingly, the top spot went to It: Chapter Two, managing the second biggest horror opening of all time, behind of course It. While it couldn’t have an opening weekend of $100 million plus like its predecessor did, it (no pun intended) still grabbed $91 million, which is spectacular, as well as representing most of what audiences went to see during this frame. The question is, what will the subsequent weeks look like for this one, when the buzz isn’t quite as over the top as last time around?

Angel Has Fallen, well…fell, to number two. An estimated $6 million gives it $53 million and counting. The franchise seems to be done, but anything is possible. Time will tell if the series gets a fourth installment, but if it doesn’t, it’s going out with a strong little haul.

Number three was Good Boys, which added another $5.3 million to its pockets. Nearly $67 million to date for this comedy has Universal pleased as punch. It’s not the Judd Apatow blockbuster numbers from a handful of years ago, but it’s still very solid.

Jumping up into the top ten was The Peanut Butter Falcon, which is slowly building up a nice fan base as it continues to expand. This weekend, it made just over $2.2 million, giving around $12.2 million to date. If the film keeps it up, not only can it end up one of Roadside Attractions’ biggest movies, it can further its hopes to be an under the radar awards contender. Stay tuned!

Among indie/limited release titles, only Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice was of note, taking in a little over 115K on just seven screens…
