The horrible hurricane in Texas, matched with the pop culture event that was Mayweather vs McGregor, took their toll on the box office, which performed with anemic numbers this weekend. Here’s what went down:
The Hitman’s Bodyguard managed to stay at the top spot for a second weekend in a row, bringing in an estimated $10.5 million, raising its two week total to nearly $40 million. Not bad for a lightweight film with poor reviews.
As for the rest of the top five, Annabelle: Creation was in second place with $7.3 million. Family film Leap! debut in third place with $5 million. Wind River moved into the top five, landing in fourth with $4.4 million, Lucky Logan closed things out in fifth with $4.3 million.
So, to recap, here were our predictions:
1) The Hitman’s Bodyguard – $11 million
2) Annabelle: Creation – $8 million
3) Dunkirk – $5 million
4) Logan Lucky – $4.5 million
5) Leap! – $4 million
And here’s how the weekend is estimated to turn otu:
1) The Hitman’s Bodyguard – $10.5 million
2) Annabelle: Creation – $7.3 million
3) Leap! – $5 million
4) Wind River – $4.4 million
5) Lucky Logan – $4.3 million
