Box Office: October 14th, 2016 – The Accountant

This is a post missed from last weekend:

Opening to almost the same $24.5 million as The Girl On The Train opened to last weekend, The Accountant, starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, and J.K. Simmons takes the number one spot, with $24.7 million. Sharing the tone and big names of the winner last weekend, it comes as a little surprise that audiences turned out for these dark natured films, but so they did. Kevin Hart’s latest stand up feature, Kevin Hart: What Now? did decent business as well, making $11.7 million off a $9.9 million budget. Week 3 holdovers Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children and Deepwater Horizon finished out the top five, bumping out The Magnificent Seven and Storks, as Storks actually overtook Seven by $0.4 million.

The biggest drops this week belong to the remaining Week 5 holdovers Bridget Jones’s Baby and Snowden, both falling eight points, while Blair Witch closes out its impressive run in the top 25, landing at number 27, with a 12 point drop. The biggest increase belongs to the number 25 spot, A Man Named Ove, which jumped 11 points, to make its way onto the chart, as last week’s biggest jumper, Denial, continues its increase, up 5 points, landing at number 20. Seven new titles land on the chart this week, with one of them being the IMAX Harry Potter marathon, gearing up for the release of Warner Brothers’ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. This contributes to a healthy amount of films falling off the chart, including the aforementioned Blair Witch, Kubo and the Two Strings, Hell Or High Water, When The Bough Breaks, The Dressmaker, along with some smaller titles like M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story and last week’s Prenam. Also, Sony’s Sausage Party falls off the list again, while Pixar’s Finding Dory, which also popped back up last week, still finds a spot at number 23.

Next weekend will see four big titles landing on the chart, with Boo! A Madea Halloween, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Keeping Up With The Joneses, and Ouija: Origin Of Evil all coming to theaters, as well as Ewan McGregor’s directorial debut American Pastoral possibly looking for a spot on the chart as well.
