Weekend Box Office Report
August 25 - August 27, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Weekend Actuals Update:

With actuals now in, Lionsgate’s The Hitman’s Bodyguard came in a bit ahead of Sunday’s studio estimate with $10.263M. Warner’s Annabelle: Creation also came in above yesterday’s estimate with $7.681 M.

Other weekend actuals for the frame include: Leap! ($4.730 M), Wind River ($4.601 M), Logan Lucky ($4.242 M), Dunkirk ($3.948 M), Spider-Man: Homecoming ($2.820 M), Birth of the Dragon ($2.702 M), Mayweather vs McGregor ($2.598 M) and All Saints ($1.514 M).

Sunday Afternoon Update:

In other box office news, Fathom Events’ theatrical presentation of Mayweather vs. McGregor grossed an estimated $2.6 M on Saturday from 532 locations (for a per-location average of $4,887). While we’re not listing the event in our weekend estimates chart, it would rank in eighth place for the entire weekend if included (and bump Birth of the Dragon down to ninth place). It should be noted that tickets for the theatrical presentation of Mayweather vs. McGregor were reportedly in the $40 range.

Weekend Estimates Update:

Lionsgate’s The Hitman’s Bodyguard grossed an estimated $10.05 M this weekend to remain in first place at the box office. The Hitman’s Bodyguard was down a sizable 53.0 percent from last weekend’s debut. The film and the already slow marketplace in general experienced additional slowing this weekend as a result of Hurricane Harvey and the Mayweather vs. McGregor boxing match on Saturday night. The Hitman’s Bodyguard has grossed a stronger than expected $39.61 M through ten days of release. That places the film 43.9 percent ahead of the $27.52 M ten-day start of War Dogs at this time last year. The Hitman’s Bodyguard and the rest of the marketplace will look to stabilize next weekend over the four-day Labor Day holiday frame, especially with no major new releases entering the marketplace.

Warner’s Annabelle: Creation held steady in second place with an estimated $7.35 M. Annabelle: Creation declined a sizable 52.9 percent from last weekend. In the bigger picture, Annabelle: Creation continues to perform very well with its low production budget in mind and exceed expectations with a 17-day gross of $77.88 M. Annabelle: Creation is running 5.1 percent ahead of the $74.08 M 17-day take of 2014’s Annabelle. Warner Bros. is set to have more success with the horror genre in the near future as anticipation continues to build for IT, which arrives in the marketplace on September 8.

Internationally, Annabelle: Creation grossed an estimated $22.0 M this weekend from 61 markets. That brings the film’s international total to a strong $137.2 M and current global haul to $215.1 M.

The Weinstein Company’s Leap! debuted in third place with an estimated $5.02 M. Leap! opened right in line with its modest expectations, which had tended to range from $4 M - $6 M heading into the weekend. Leap! started out 39.8 percent below the recent $8.34 M opening of The Nut Job 2, though it should be noted that Leap! launched in significantly less locations than The Nut Job 2 did. Reception to Leap! from critics and online users has been mixed, as the film has a current LoveHate Rate of 5.687. However, Leap! appears to be going over significantly better with its target audience, as the film received a strong A rating on CinemaScore. That is a good early sign for Leap! going forward, as is the fact that no new family films will be entering the marketplace until Warner’s The LEGO Ninjago Movie does so on September 22.

The Weinstein Company also claimed fourth place this weekend, as Wind River took in an estimated $4.41 M upon expanding into wide release. Wind River was up six spots and 48.2 percent over last weekend, when the film was playing in a moderate 694 locations. The 24-day total for Wind River stands at a promising $9.84 M. While its rate of expansion was different, last year’s Hell or High Water grossed $4.44 M from 1,303 locations in its fourth weekend and totaled $14.59 M through its first 24 days of release. Wind River has gone over very well with critics and online users (the film currently has a strong LoveHate Rate of 8.473) and will hope to hold up well going forward thanks in part to its strong critical reception.

Bleecker Street and Fingerprint Releasing’s Logan Lucky rounded out the weekend’s top five with an estimated $4.37 M. Logan Lucky was down 42.5 percent from last weekend’s debut. That represented a very solid second weekend hold, especially given this weekend’s declines in general. In addition to being aided by strong critical reviews, Logan Lucky may have received a bit of a boost from moviegoers who waited until this weekend to catch the film after choosing The Hitman’s Bodyguard last weekend. The ten-day total for Logan Lucky stands at a softer than expected $15.04 M. That places Logan Lucky 21.2 percent behind the $19.09 M ten-day take of 2013’s Side Effects.

Warner’s Dunkirk followed in sixth place with an estimated $3.95 M. Dunkirk decreased 40.3 percent from last weekend and has grossed a healthy $172.48 M in 38 days. Dunkirk is running 3.4 percent ahead of the $166.75 M grossed by 2014’s Interstellar after 38 days of wide release. After grossing an estimated $5.6 M internationally this weekend from 61 markets, the international total for Dunkirk stands at $239.7 M. Dunkirk has grossed $412.2 M to date globally.

Meanwhile, both BH Tilt’s Birth of the Dragon and Sony’s All Saints failed to make any noise at the box office. Birth of the Dragon debuted in eighth place with an estimated $2.50 M from 1,618 locations, while All Saints started out in 15th with only an estimated $1.55 M from 846 locations. Expectations had been low for both films heading into the weekend. Current LoveHate Rates stand at 7.819 for All Saints and at just 4.180 for Birth of the Dragon. All Saints received an encouraging A- rating on CinemaScore, while Birth of the Dragon received a respectable B rating.
