Monday Morning Box Office Report: Sully Still in Control

boxofficesully

It was a strong repeat performance for Clint Eastwood’s Sully over the weekend as it dropped just 37% in its second weekend to stay at the top of the box office. That’s no small feat, although it didn’t hurt that audiences also failed to respond to all three of the new movies in wide release. Blair Witch was a distant second with just $9.7 million, considerably less than the much maligned Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 made back in 2000. Initial predictions had it over $20 million, although in retrospect, that was probably unrealistic considering how much time has passed. Bridget Jones’s Baby came in third with $8.2 million, which is also less than Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason made back in 2004 (and on 2500 less screens… ouch). In fourth place, Oliver Stone’s Snowden earned $8 million, which was mostly to be expected considering the mixed public opinion on the NSA whistleblower. Don’t Breathe rounded out the top 5 and has now made $107 million worldwide.

1. Sully — $22.0M
2. Blair Witch — $9.7M
3. Bridget Jones’s Baby — $8.2M
