Two big-budget Hollywood eyeglasses clashed for a tip symbol during a weekend box office; both budgeted during around $110 million, Peter Berg’s Deepwater Horizon ultimately valid to be no compare for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, as the Tim Burton crack finishes a entrance support during No. 1, earning an estimated $28.5 million between Friday and Sunday.
Miss Peregrine’s No. 1 entrance comes in a hair bashful of Burton’s prior live-action blockbuster, Dark Shadows, that premiered to $29.7 million behind in 2012. While a latter was widely seen as a box bureau disappointment, finishing a domestic run with just underneath $80 million, it scored $165 million from abroad markets, and Miss Peregrine is staid to do a same. Still, it’s arguably in position for a healthier run in North America, with stronger vicious reviews (64 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) and assembly greeting (it stands during a B+ on CinemaScore) than Burton’s final studio fantasy.
Deepwater Horizon, starring Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez, and Kate Hudson, crosses a finish line during No. 2 with an estimated $20.6 million (including $3.7 million from 492 IMAX locations). Though a weekend numbers volume to a small some-more than half of what Wahlberg and Berg’s prior collaboration, 2013’s Lone Survivor, done opposite a beginner three-day frame, the action-drama, formed on a real-life events heading adult to a 2010 BP Oil Spill, warranted a best assembly reviews (A- on CinemaScore) of this week’s new releases.
Taking a bigger decrease than early projections suggested, final week’s box bureau champ, The Magnificent Seven, falls two spots to No. 3, creation an estimated $15.7 million after a 55 percent decline. Deepwater Horizon expected tapped into Seven’s intensity audience, though a Antoine Fuqua-directed western is enjoying healthy worldwide totals, pacing forward of a $90 million prolongation bill with tellurian numbers amounting to over $108 million and counting.
Warner Bros. Animation’s Storks dips from No. 2 to No. 4 across its second weekend in far-reaching release, shedding a slight 35 percent as it decreases from from $21.3 million to an estimated $13.8 million. The $70 million design — the second to be expelled underneath WB’s animation multiplication — features an all-star voice cast including Jennifer Aniston, Andy Samberg, Ty Burrell, Kelsey Grammer, Jordan Peele, and Keegan-Michael Key.
Rounding out a tip 5 is Clint Eastwood’s Sully, that crosses a $100 million symbol after a fourth weekend in theaters. Unadjusted for inflation, a $60 million Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger biopic becomes a Hollywood icon’s fifth directorial bid to sum over $100 million, and star Tom Hanks’ 19th. By mid-week, a film should transcend 2013’s Captain Phillips ($107 million) as Hanks’ highest-earning live-action film given Angels Demons warranted $133 million in 2009.
Relativity’s critically-lampooned comedy Masterminds, starring Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig, falls in line with medium projections, holding an estimated $6.6 million during No. 6.
As it expands from specialty recover into 1,242 theaters, Disney’s Queen of Katwe stumbles during No. 7, earning a diseased $2.6 million with a per-theater normal of only $2,100. Still, a Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo-fronted film was a runner-up for a 2016 Toronto International Film Festival’s prestigious People’s Choice Award, and notched an implausible A+ class on CinemaScore following a singular crawl on Sept. 23.
