‘It’, ‘Kingsman’, ‘American Made’ battle for the top spot at the box office

Apologies for the late wrap-up report. I was at Hamilton Comic Con today with my Little Princess, where we got to meet Ernie Hudson aka Winston Zedmore of Ghostbusters fame. I’m going to eschew analysis this week, because it’s be a long day.


In a tight race for first place, it’s estimated that It has come out on top with $17.3 million. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is right behind it in second with $17 million, while Tom Cruise’s American Made is in third with an estimated $16.85 million, a low haul for a Cruise film that critics actually enjoyed quite a bit. The race between the three films could change when the actuals are out on Monday.

As for the rest of the top five, The LEGO Ninjago Movie was in fourth place with $12 million, while the 0% fresh Flatliners bombed big time at the box office, landing in fifth place with $6.7 million.

So, to recap, here were our predictions:

1) It – $17 million
2) Kingsman: The Golden Circle – $16.5 million
3) American Made – $15 million
4) The LEGO Ninjago Movie – $10 million
5) Flatliners – $8 million

And here’s how the weekend is estimated to turn out:

1) It – $17.3 million
2) Kingsman: The Golden Circle – $17 million
3) American Made – $16.85 million
4) The LEGO Ninjago Movie – $12million
5) Flatliners – $6.7 million

Next weekend sees the release of Blade Runner 2049. Be sure to check back on Friday to see our predictions!
