Battle at the Box Office 9/4

Wrapping one of the worst months in the history of summer box office, The Hitman’s Bodyguard stayed on top for a third week in the row but it was the worst Labor Day weekend in over 10 years.

Hitman’s Bodyguard took in another $13.4 million, bringing it up to over $58 million but the entire top 12 only grossed just over $51 million combined, which is the worst Labor Day weekend since 2000.

Annabelle: Creation remained in second with another $9.3 million, bringing it to just over $90 million and it’s far outpacing the first Annabelle movie and it may have a shot at topping The Conjuring 2, which made $102 million.

Wind River got 500 more theaters over the weekend and moved up to the third spot with $7.9 million, putting it over $20 million.

Leap! and Logan Lucky rounded out the top 5 with the former getting an additional 130 theaters over the weekend.

Possibly as a last gasp of summer before school starts, a bunch of the kid’s movies that were out got a bump and Despicable Me 3 and The Nut Job 2 both jumped back into the top 10 and The Emoji Movie moved back up the top 10, going from tenth to eighth and Cars 3 even came back to theaters and made an additional $2.34 million.

Further down the list, Steven Spielberg’s classic Close Encounters of the Third Kind returned to theaters to celebrate it’s anniversary and made $2.3 million in 901 theaters.
