Summer Slowdown Continues At Box Office

WINNIPEG, MB. — It gets pretty quiet at the cinema in late August.

The big summer blockbusters are winding down and people are trying to make the most of their time before back-to-school.

The three movies at the top of the box office raked in less than $45-million combined.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard grossed $21.4-million on a $30-million budget.

Annabelle: Creation proved again that audiences are ready for fall fare on the big screen.

The Conjuring spin off sequel raised receipts to $15.6-million.

Logan Lucky landed in third place with a $7.6-million opening.

You could consider the opening dismal for a film that cost $29-million to produce.
