Box Office Report 9/29

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

This weekend at the box office The Equalizer lost The Maze Runner down a dead end to pick up the number one spot with a $34 million opening weekend.  The Maze Runner dropped, only picking up $17.4 million as opposed to last weekends $32.  The Boxtrolls just fell short of picking up the second place spot, missing the mark by only $200,000.  All while the delightful This is Where I Leave You is struggling to find an audience, I suspect due to releasing at the wrong time of year, it should have released closer to the holiday season.  In other news Guardians of the Galaxy, which is still running at a steady pace in theatres is now the second most profitable superhero (non-sequel) film, passing Iron Man.  Seriously, a film with a talking Racoon, and a (mostly) talking tree, in space.  I can’t wait for the Disneyland attraction.
