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.
The top 10 box office numbers from the weekend follow below:
|1||—||The Hitman’s Bodyguard||$21.4-million||New|
|5||3||The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature||$5.1-million||2|
