Not much really changed over the weekend as far as the box office goes as the top 5 remained the same as Thanksgiving weekend with Ralph Breaks the Internet staying on top.
Eli Roth’s family-friendly spookfest The House With a Clock In Its Walls was the only bright spot in one of the worst performing weekends at the box office in 2018, taking #1 as the three other new releases failed spectacularly.
The Predator won a Pyrrhic victory at the box office over the weekend, taking #1 but also having the worst opening ever for a movie in over 4,000 theaters, taking that spot away from Tom Cruise’s The Mummy.
The Nun not only crushed every other entry in The Conjuring franchise as far as opening weekends, it also had the second highest September and R rated horror opening of all time, behind IT Chapter One.
Crazy Rich Asians held onto the top spot at the box office for the third week in a row as Summer 2018 came to a close over the Labor Day holiday weekend.
Crazy Rich Asians remained on top of the box office for another weekend with one of the lowest drops ever between a first and second weekend while The Meg remains strong domestically and worldwide and the other new releases disappointed, if not outright bombed in the case of AXL.
Crazy Rich Asians took the box office title out of the mouth of The Meg and topped the weekend box office while Mile 22 underperformed and Alpha and Mission: Impossible Fallout were neck and neck for the fourth and fifth spots.
The latest from Mark Wahlberg/Peter Berg, a lavish Asian romantic comedy and the story of how man trained dog arrive in theaters this weekend.
