Daily Box Office Report
Wednesday, November 1, 2017




By Daniel Garris

STXfilms’ A Bad Moms Christmas was off to a first place start on Wednesday with a modest opening day take of $2.517 M. It should be noted that A Bad Moms Christmas didn’t have the advantage of Tuesday night previews as part of its opening day gross and that the marketplace in general faced added competition yesterday from Game 7 of the World Series. At the same time, it was especially important for A Bad Moms Christmas to get off to a good start yesterday regardless with Disney’s highly anticipated Thor: Ragnarok entering the marketplace tonight.

Wednesday’s performance for A Bad Moms Christmas was a lackluster 68.9 percent below the $8.103 M Wednesday start of 2013’s Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (which did have the added advantage of Tuesday night previews). Given yesterday’s start, it is highly likely that A Bad Moms Christmas will come in below BoxOfficeReport’s $16.5 M prediction for the 3-day weekend. A Bad Moms Christmas received a respectable B rating on CinemaScore, though that was significantly softer than the A CinemaScore rating received by last year’s Bad Moms. Like its predecessor, A Bad Moms Christmas will hope to display strong holding power (holiday themed films in general also tend to be back-loaded at the box office).

Lionsgate’s Jigsaw was down one spot from Tuesday to take second place on Wednesday with $1.006 M. Jigsaw was down a very sharp 54.7 percent from Tuesday. In addition to taking a hit from both the release of A Bad Moms Christmas and Game 7 of the World Series, holdovers with Halloween appeal also experienced post-Halloween slowing on Wednesday. Jigsaw has grossed a respectable $21.270 M in six days. That places the film 28.3 percent ahead of the $16.573 M six-day launch of 2009’s Saw VI and 27.6 percent behind the $29.373 M six-day start of 2010’s Saw 3D. BoxOfficeReport is predicting a second weekend gross of $6.3 M for Jigsaw.

Warner’s Geostorm was up one spot from Tuesday to move into third place on Wednesday with $428 K. Geostorm declined 34.8 percent from Tuesday and a sizable 49.2 percent from last Wednesday. The pricey Geostorm has grossed a modest $25.369 M in thirteen days domestically, but is performing far stronger internationally. BoxOfficeReport is predicting that Geostorm will gross $2.4 M in its third weekend.

Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween was down two spots from Tuesday to land in fourth on Wednesday with $422 K. Boo 2! A Madea Halloween slowed a massive 66.6 percent from Tuesday’s Halloween inflated performance and 50.3 percent from last Wednesday. The 13-Day total for Boo 2! A Madea Halloween stands at $37.931 M, which places the film 32.9 percent behind the $56.492 M 13-day haul of last year’s Boo! A Madea Halloween. BoxOfficeReport is predicting a third weekend gross of $4.2 M for Boo 2! A Madea Halloween.

Warner’s Blade Runner 2049 and Universal’s Happy Death Day claimed fifth and sixth place with respective daily grosses of $384 K and $329 K. Blade Runner 2049 decreased 27.3 percent from Tuesday and 49.0 percent from last Wednesday, while Happy Death Day declined 52.7 percent from Tuesday and 41.8 percent from last Wednesday. Respective total grosses stand at a significantly softer than expected $82.877 M for Blade Runner 2049 in 27 days and at a stronger than expected $49.839 M for Happy Death Day through 20 days.
