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.

'American Made' and 'Flatliners' Target Spots in the Weekend Box Office Top Five

As of the end of the day Wednesday, the month-to-date gross is less than $6 million shy of becoming the largest September ever. Much of the month’s $620+ million is thanks to the record performance from It, which has grossed over $272 million domestically and $500 million globally. The month should become the largest September ever by the end of day today and this weekend offers one last chance to add to the total with new releases including Tom Cruise’s American Made and Sony’s Flatliners …

'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…

'Annabelle' Scares Up an Impressive $4M from Thursday Previews

FRIDAY AM UPDATE: Annabelle: Creation got off to a great start last night, bringing in $4 million from Thursday previews, nearly doubling the $2.1 million in previews for Annabelle and topping the $3.3 million in previews for The Conjuring and the $3.4 million in previews for The Conjuring 2.

This doesn’t necessarily mean it will improve not the $37 million opening for Annabelle or near the $40+ million debuts for either Conjuring film as previews can be very front-loaded, but it does s…

The weekend’s other new wide release was Focus Features’ Atomic Blonde, which fell a little short of expectations.
