Two New Films, Miss Peregrine and Deepwater Horizon, Top the Box Office
Two films that saw their debut this past weekend topped the box office. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children came in first place with an estimated $28.5 million. The film has an estimated budget of $110 million and also earned $36.5 million internationally from 59 markets. That’s $65 million worldwide for a film that received a B+ Cinesmascore and stands at 64% on RottenTomatoes. Both of those indicate the film will likely do ok in the long run, but who knows if it’ll make back its budget domestically.
In second place was Deepwater Horizon earning an estimated $20.6 million. The film also has a $110 million budget and also earned $12.4 million internationally from 52 markets. That film earned an A- Cinemascore and an 82% rating on RottenTomatoes. Both of those will drive the film for a bit, though it won’t likely cross $100 million domestically.
Those two films dropped the last weekend’s first and second place down with The Magnificent Seven adding an estimated $15.7 million domestically and Storks adding an estimated $13.8 million domestically.
Also debuting was Masterminds which came in sixth and earned an estimated $6.6 million.
Suicide Squad dropped out of the top ten and came in eleventh earning an estimated $1.91 million domestically. The film has earned $320.8 million domestically, $413 million internationally, and that means $733.8 million worldwide. There’s a possibility the film will pass Batman v Superman as far as domestic earnings, it’s currently $10 million behind. It’s currently 15th in worldwide earnings and is $14 million behind X-Men: Days of Future Past.
