Weekend Box Office Report: October 28-30, 2016

10.30.2016

Madea frightens away Tom Hanks!

Tyler Perry and his costumed antics remained the most popular multiplex option this weekend to keep BOO! A MADEA HALLOWEEN on top at the box office with an estimated $16.6 million!

That represents a 41% drop from the opening of the PG-13 horror-comedy, bringing Perry's seventh Madea movie to a ten-day domestic total of $52 million (on a $20 million budget).

Tom Hanks may have soared into the top spot with SULLY just last month, but his new globetrotting thriller INFERNO opened in second place with $15 million. Hanks' third time out as novelist Dan Brown's symbologist Robert Langdon started with just a fraction of both THE DA VINCI CODE's $77 million opening in 2006 and the $46.2 million debut weekend of ANGELS & DEMONS in 2009.

The Ron Howard-directed sequel has already made an additional $132.7 million from international crowds (THE DA VINCI CODE ended up with $758 million worldwide, and ANGELS & DEMONS finished with a global total of $485 million).

INFERNO also cost a comparatively reasonable $75 million to make, versus the $125 million budget of THE DA VINCI CODE and the $150 reported cost of ANGELS & DEMONS. The latest entry in the Langdon franchise left most critics shrugging with 20% on Rotten Tomatoes. (The JoBlo review is HERE.)

The PG-13 action-thriller JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK got knocked down to third with $9.5 million, bleeding 58% of business from last week's opening. Tom Cruise's $60 million sequel has a ten-day domestic total of $39.6 million and a worldwide total of $93.8 million.

Ben Affleck's assassin/mathmetician THE ACCOUNTANT held onto fourth place with $8.4 million over its third weekend in theaters. The original R-rated action-drama is now at a domestic total of $61.2 million.

The supernatural horror movie OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL was in fifth place with $7 million on Halloween weekend, down almost 50% from its opening last week. The $9 million sequel has a domestic total of $24.6 million after ten days.

On the lower half of the chart, the Emily Blunt thriller THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN was in sixth place with $4.2 million, followed by MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN in seventh with $3.9 million. Tim Burton's adaptation of the Ransom Riggs fantasy book has a worldwide total of $243.4 million (on a $110 million production cost).

In eighth place was the PG-13 action-comedy KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES with $3.3 million. The Jon Hamm/Gal Gadot/Zach Galifianakis/Isla Fisher team-up lost 38% of business from its bleak opening last week for a ten-day domestic total of $10.7 million.

The animated STORKS was in ninth with $2.7 million after flying for a month and a half, and the Hindi romantic drama AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL nudged onto the list with $2.1 million (on just 302 screens).

Outside the chart, DEEPWATER HORIZON sank out of sight with KEVIN HART: WHAT NOW? In limited release, the acclaimed drama MOONLIGHT expanded to 36 screens and brought its total to $1.4 million.

Next weekend brings Benedict Cumberbatch as Marvel's sorcerer supreme in DOCTOR STRANGE, which has already made $84 million from its overseas opening (you can read the JoBlo review HERE). In addition, Mel Gibson directs the WWII movie HACKSAW RIDGE, and colorful frizzy-haired toys get animated in TROLLS.

Anyone who directs Kim Kartrashian in a movie should have their movies avoided on principle alone. This is why we can't have nice things.
