Daily Box Office Report
Tuesday, September 18, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Fox’s The Predator grossed $2.502 million on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a fifth straight day. The Predator increased 31.6 percent over Monday’s performance. That represented one of the day’s smaller percentage daily increases among wide releases, as holdovers in general yesterday benefited from the start of the Yom Kippur holiday. It should also be noted that Monday’s performance for The Predator received a boost from the film being a daily MoviePass option that day (the film wasn’t a MoviePass option on Tuesday). The five-day start for The Predator stands at $29.036 million. That is a bit below expectations and the places the film a slim 2.3 percent behind the $29.731 million five-day launch of 2010’s Predators.

Lionsgate’s A Simple Favor was up one spot from Monday to move into second place on Tuesday with $2.298 million. A Simple Favor increased a terrific 80.0 percent over Monday, as the film benefited on Tuesday from the combination of healthy word of mouth, Yom Kippur and being a daily MoviePass option for the day (after not being an option on Monday). The five-day launch for A Simple Favor stands at a very solid $19.585 million. That place A Simple Favor 26.6 percent ahead of the $15.471 million five-day start of 2015’s The Age of Adaline.

Warner and New Line’s The Nun was down one place from Tuesday to land in third on Tuesday with $1.939 million. The Nun increased 48.2 percent over Monday, but still decreased a very sharp 59.8 percent from last Tuesday’s performance (which was inflated from both IMAX shows and the film being a MoviePass option that day). While it has been heavily front-loaded thus far, The Nun has grossed a very strong $88.362 million in twelve days. The film is running an impressive 30.1 percent ahead of the $67.901 million twelve-day haul of last year’s Annabelle: Creation.

Sony and Studio 8's White Boy Rick held steady in fourth place with $1.208 million. That represented a 46.8 percent increase over Monday’s performance. White Boy Rick has grossed $10.892 million in five days, which is towards the lower end of pre-release expectations. White Boy Rick should receive an added boost today from being a daily MoviePass option for Wednesday.

Warner’s Crazy Rich Asians took in $1.110 million to remain in fifth place. Crazy Rich Asians was up a healthy 54.1 percent over Monday’s performance (which received a boost from the film being a MoviePass option for Monday) and was down a very solid 35.2 percent from last Tuesday. Crazy Rich Asians continues to pad its status as one of the year’s bigger break-outs with an impressive 35-day gross of $151.370 million.
