Weekend Box Office Report
October 27 - October 29, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Weekend Actuals Update:

With actuals now in, Lionsgate’s Jigsaw came in a bit above yesterday’s studio estimate with a first place debut of $16.640 M. Fellow Lionsgate release Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween claimed second place for the frame with $10.053 M.

Other weekend actuals for the frame include: Geostorm ($5.903 M), Happy Death Day ($5.079 M), Blade Runner 2049 ($4.117 M), Thank You for Your Service ($3.818 M), Only the Brave ($3.502 M), The Foreigner ($3.443 M), Suburbicon ($2.840 M), IT ($2.503 M) and Let There Be Light ($1.730 M).

Weekend Estimates Update:

Lionsgate’s Jigsaw debuted in first place this weekend with an estimated $16.25 M. However, Jigsaw opened below consensus expectations (which had tended to range from $18 M to $22 M) and delivered the second lowest debut of the Saw franchise (ahead of only 2009’s Saw VI). Jigsaw started out 15.1 percent ahead of the $14.12 M start of Saw VI and 32.9 percent below the $24.23 M launch of 2010’s Saw 3D (the last installment of the Saw franchise prior to Jigsaw).

Jigsaw started with $7.18 M on Friday (which included an estimated $1.60 M from Thursday night shows that began at 7PM), decreased 21.0 percent on Saturday to take in $5.67 M and is estimated to decline 40.0 percent on Sunday to gross $3.40 M. While Jigsaw has received lukewarm critical reviews, the film is going over much better with online users. Jigsaw currently has a rating of 6.042 on our LoveHate Rate aggregate measurement of critical and online user ratings. Jigsaw received a B rating on CinemaScore, which is very solid for a horror film and suggests that the film is going over well with audiences.

Fellow Lionsgate release Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween took second place with an estimated $10.00 M. Boo 2! A Madea Halloween was down one spot and a sharp 52.9 percent from last weekend. Boo 2! A Madea Halloween was unable to duplicate the strong second weekend hold of last year’s Boo! A Madea Halloween, which slowed 39.6 percent in its second weekend to gross $17.22 M. Boo 2! A Madea Halloween has grossed $35.52 M in ten days. That is in line with expectations and places the film 32.4 percent behind the $52.56 M ten-day start of Boo! A Madea Halloween.

Warner’s Geostorm was down one spot from last weekend to land in third place with an estimated $5.68 M. Geostorm declined a very sharp 58.6 percent from last weekend, as poor critical reviews and lackluster word of mouth look to be taking a toll on the film. The ten-day domestic total for Geostorm stands at a lackluster $23.55 M. However, Geostorm continues to perform far stronger internationally, as the film grossed an estimated $49.3 M this weekend from 61 international markets. This weekend’s international performance was driven by a $34.1 M debut in China. Geostorm has grossed $113.4 M to date internationally and $137.0 M globally.

Universal’s Happy Death Day was down one spot from last weekend to claim fourth place with an estimated $5.10 M. Happy Death Day declined a respectable 45.5 percent this weekend, as the film was aided by both the approaching Halloween holiday and by expanding into an additional 237 locations this weekend. Happy Death Day has grossed $48.39 M in 17 days, as the film continues to exceed expectations and perform very nicely with its low production budget in mind. Happy Death Day is running 7.3 percent behind the $52.18 M 17-day gross of 2015’s The Visit.

Warner’s Blade Runner 2049 fell one spot to round out the weekend’s top five with an estimated $3.97 M. That represented a respectable 46.1 percent slide from last weekend. Blade Runner 2049 has grossed a significantly softer than expected $81.39 M through 24 days of release, which places the film 37.7 percent behind the $130.67 M 24-day take of 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road.

In other box office news, Universal and DreamWorks’ Thank You for Your Service and Paramount’s Suburbicon were both off to very soft starts with respective estimated grosses of $3.70 M and $2.80 M. For the frame, Thank You for Your Service placed in sixth, while Suburbicon had to settle for ninth place. Over the years, it has been fairly commonplace for lower profile wide releases to have disappointing launches over Halloween weekend and Thank You for Your Service and Suburbicon both clearly followed that trend this weekend. Thank You for Your Service is going over far better than Suburbicon has with both critics and audiences. Thank You for Your Service has a current LoveHate Rate of 7.335 and received a healthy A- rating on CinemaScore, while Suburbicon has a current LoveHate Rate of just 3.601 and received a terrible D- rating on CinemaScore.

Prior to its domestic launch this coming Friday, Disney’s Thor: Ragnarok was off to a strong international start this weekend with an estimated $107.6 M from 36 international markets. Disney estimates that Thor: Ragnarok opened 22 percent stronger than last year’s Doctor Strange when comparing the same international territories at today’s exchange rates. Key international debuts for Thor: Ragnarok included $15.8 M in the U.K., $15.5 M in Korea, $8.4 M in Australia, $8.3 M in Brazil and $7.4 M in France. In addition to opening domestically next weekend, Thor: Ragnarok will continue its international rollout next weekend, as the film will be opening throughout most of the remainder of the globe, including Germany, Russia, China, Japan and Mexico.

In other international news, Disney’s Coco debuted in Mexico with an estimated $8.4 M this weekend. Coco was released early in Mexico to be in the marketplace for the upcoming Día de Muertos holiday. Coco will debut domestically and in a number of international markets on November 22.
