Monday Morning Box Office Report: Don’t Breathe Dominates, Morgan Misses the Mark


The Labour Day weekend was a pretty forgettable one for movies as audiences showed little interest in either of the new releases, allowing Don’t Breathe to once again sneak away with the box office title. The Sam Raimi-produced horror thriller earned another $19.6 million over four days, bringing its worldwide total to $63 million. Suicide Squad remained in second place with $12.8 million as it crossed $300 million domestically and Pete’s Dragon jumped up to third place in its fourth weekend with $8.6 million. Kubo and the Two Strings and Sausage Party rounded out the top 5. Meanwhile Derek Cianfrance’s The Light Between Oceans opened in eighth place with a disappointing $5.9 million and Luke Scott’s Morgan completely tanked with $2.4 million. That is one of the worst debuts ever for a movie playing on over 2000 screens, and although it was never going to be a huge blockbuster, it simply never received the marketing push needed to create any sort of awareness. Tough break.

    Wow, Morgan didn’t look that good to me but I didn’t expect it to tank this badly. Oh well, Luke, guess your dad’s name recognition ain’t enough.
