Last weekend’s big movies managed to maintain their spots at the box office for the second weekend in a row, while this weekend’s new releases really didn’t make much of a dent at all.
Venom held on to the top spot again, bringing in an estimated $35.7 million. That’s a fantastic hold for a super hero film, and one that’s proving divisive, as it dropped just 55% week to week. Initially I thought that Venom would have a hard time making it to $200 million, but with it currently sitting at $138.6 million, I don’t think it’s actually going to be a problem at all.
As for the rest of the top five, A Star Is Born also posted an incredible hold, down just 31% week to week, as it brought in $29.6 million. It’s total currently stands at $95.7 million, with a lot more to come.
This weeks two new debuts, First Man and Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, both failed to find large audiences, with the former delivering $16.8 million to wind up in third place and the latter settling for fourth with just $15.7 million. Smallfoot closed things out fifth place with $8.8 million.
So, to recap, here were our predictions:
1) A Star Is Born – $31 million
2) Venom – $30 million
3) First Man – $20 million
4) Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween – $15 million
5) Bad Times at the El Royale – $10 million
And here’s how the weekend is estimated to turn out:
1) Venom – $35.7 million
2) A Star Is Born – $29.6 million
3) First Man – $16.8 million
4) Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween – $15.7 million
5) Smallfoot– $8.8 million
