Daily Box Office Report
Tuesday, August 15, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Warner’s Annabelle: Creation took in $4.527 M on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a fifth straight day. Annabelle: Creation increased a solid 25.0 percent over Monday, though it should be noted that daily percentage increases were strong in general on Tuesday. Annabelle: Creation passed the $40 M domestic mark yesterday and has grossed a stronger than expected $43.156 M in five days. The film is running 6.6 percent ahead of the $40.478 M five-day start of last year’s The Purge: Election Year and 2.5 percent ahead of the $42.117 M five-day launch of 2014’s Annabelle.

Fellow Warner Bros. release Dunkirk held steady in second place with $1.832 M. Dunkirk increased 40.8 percent over Monday and decreased just 33.2 percent from last Tuesday. Dunkirk has grossed $156.325 M in 26 days, which gives the film a current total gross to opening weekend ratio of 3.10 to 1. Dunkirk is running 5.0 percent ahead of the $148.930 M grossed by 2014’s Interstellar after 26 days of wide release.

Open Road’s The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature grossed $1.564 M to remain in third. The Nut Job 2 was up a strong 66.0 percent over Monday’s performance. However, in the bigger picture The Nut Job 2 continues to perform below its relatively modest expectations with a five-day take of $10.848 M. That places The Nut Job 2 a lackluster 59.2 percent behind the $26.579 M five-day haul of 2014’s The Nut Job.

Sony’s The Emoji Movie continued to claim fourth place with $1.453 M. The Emoji Movie increased a strong 65.9 percent over Monday and decreased a respectable 43.7 percent from last Tuesday. The Emoji Movie continues to perform in line with expectations with a 19-day gross of $65.767 M. The film is running 10.1 percent ahead of the $59.709 M 19-day total of 2015’s Pixels.

Fellow Sony release The Dark Tower rounded out the day’s unchanged top five with $1.285 M. That represented a 48.2 percent jump over Monday and a sizable 47.3 percent slide from last Tuesday. The Dark Tower has grossed an underwhelming $36.403 M in twelve days, which is on the low end of the film’s scaled back expectations.

Sony also claimed sixth place on Tuesday, as Spider-Man: Homecoming grossed $1.178 M for the day. Spider-Man: Homecoming was up 46.4 percent from Monday and down only 29.2 percent from last Tuesday. Spider-Man: Homecoming has grossed $308.359 M in 40 days, which currently ranks the film in 63rd place on the all-time unadjusted domestic list.

Universal’s Girls Trip took seventh place for the day with $967 K. Girls Trip increased 36.7 percent over Monday and decreased a solid 42.2 percent from last Tuesday. Girls Trip has grossed a stronger than expected $98.814 M in 26 days. That leaves the film just $1.186 M away from reaching the $100 M domestic milestone.

Lionsgate’s The Glass Castle finished in eighth with $845 K. The Glass Castle earned a daily per-location average of $579 from 1,461 locations, which represented the second highest per-location average of the day among films currently in wide release. The film was up a healthy 51.8 percent over Monday. The Glass Castle is performing in line with its modest expectations, with a six-day start of $6.081 M.
