Daily Box Office Report
Wednesday, October 3, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Universal’s Night School continued to lead the daily box office on Wednesday with $1.552 million. Night School has now topped the daily box office for five of the past six days. Night School did decline a sharp 44.2 percent from Tuesday and that was with the aid of being a daily MoviePass option on Wednesday. With a six-day start of $33.264 million, Night School continues to run in line with expectations and is running 20.3 percent behind the $41.749 million six-day haul of 2015’s Get Hard. BoxOfficeReport is predicting that Night School will gross $12.0 million in its second weekend.

Warner’s Smallfoot held steady in second place with $951,333. Smallfoot was down an especially sharp 49.2 percent from Tuesday’s performance (which was inflated a bit from the film being a daily MoviePass option on Tuesday). The six-day total for Smallfoot stands at $26.929 million, which is in line with expectations. Smallfoot is running 10.8 percent ahead of the $24.311 million six-day launch of 2016’s Storks. BoxOfficeReport is predicting a $13.8 million second weekend take for Smallfoot.

Universal and Amblin’s The House with a Clock in Its Walls grossed $620,605 to remain in third. That represented a sharp 44.0 percent decline from Tuesday and a respectable 45.4 percent decline from last Wednesday. With a solid 13-day total of $47.241 million, The House with a Clock in Its Walls is running 2.3 percent ahead of the $46.166 million 13-day haul of 2015’s Goosebumps. BoxOfficeReport is predicting that The House with a Clock in Its Walls will take in $6.0 million in its third weekend.

Lionsgate’s A Simple Favor was up one spot from Tuesday to claim fourth on Wednesday with $556,201. A Simple Favor decreased 39.3 percent from Tuesday and 46.4 percent from last Wednesday’s performance (when the film was a daily MoviePass option). A Simple Favor has grossed a healthy $45.017 million in 20 days. With Warner's A Star is Born entering the marketplace this weekend, BoxOfficeReport is predicting $3.6 million for A Simple Favor in its fourth frame.

Warner and New Line’s The Nun moved up two spots from Tuesday to round out Wednesday’s top five with $403,668. The Nun was down 29.3 percent from Tuesday and down a solid 37.6 percent from last Wednesday. The 27-day total for The Nun stands at a strong $110.415 million, which places the film 20.1 percent ahead of the $91.961 million 27-day gross of last year’s Annabelle: Creation.
