Monday Morning Box Office Report: Happy Death Day Has Its Cake


Universal and Blumhouse scored their third horror hit of the year with Happy Death Day over the weekend, following in the footsteps of both Split and Get Out earlier this year. The Groundhog Day-inspired slasher film topped the box office with $26.5 million, easily defeating Blade Runner 2049 in its second weekend after the sci-fi sequel dropped 54% from its already tepid debut. In third place, The Foreigner earned $12.8 million which falls right in line with expectations, while It fell to fourth place. The Mountain Between Us rounded out the top 5. Elsewhere, Marshall opened just outside the top 10 with $3 million, while Professor Marston & the Wonder Women failed to capitalize on the newfound popularity of Wonder Woman, earning a disastrous $737,000 from over 1200 screens.

  • Yeah can’t quite put my finger on it but no part of me feels the need or want to go see PM&WW

    This Jason Blum dude can’t lose.

    Blade Runner doing so poorly makes me sad for many reasons. Hopefully they won’t close the door for smart, big budget sci-fi.
