The House With a Clock In Its Walls Debuts in First

This past weekend was one of the worst of the year hampered with soft openings for Fahrenheit 11/9, Life Itself, and Assassination Nation. Other films struggled as well. The top of the box office was held by The House with a Clock in Its Walls which opened with an estimated $26.9 million. The film was expected to debut in the low 20s so it beat that by a bit. The film received a “B+” CinemaScore and is positioned to do well through Halloween. The movie also debuted in 14 markets where it brought in an estimated $3.1 million.

In second place was A Simple Favor. The film dropped just 35% from the previous weekend with an estimated $10.4 million. Domestically it has earned $32.6 million. Internationally the film added $5.2 million from 36 markets and stands at $10 million there.

In third place was The Nun which dropped 44% from the previous weekend. It earned an estimated $10.2 million and has crossed the $100 million mark domestically with $100.9. It’s the fourth film in the Conjuring franchise to do so.

Taking a nasty spill from last week’s first place was The Predator which fell 64.7% to come in fourth. The movie earned an estimated $8.7 million to bring its domestic total to $40.4 million. Internationally the film earned an estimated $15.3 million from 82 markets to bring that total to $54.5 million. It still has numerous foreign markets to open and will have to rely on those.

Rounding out the top five was Crazy Rich Asians which held steady dropping just 25% and earning an estimated $6.5 million after six weeks. The domestic earnings are $159.4 million. Internationally the film earned an estimated $5.1 million from 35 markets bringing that total up to $47 million.

When it comes to comic book movies…

Ant-Man and the Wasp was #23 earning an estimated $270,000 domestically to bring that number to $215.8 million.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive into this year’s comic book movie earnings.

• They say the road to Hell is paved with good intentions, and in BEN REILLY’s case, that may be literal!
• For months, Ben’s attempts to cure a young girl’s rare illness have proved fruitless – that is, until a mysterious benefactor from the DIOGENES INITIATIVE reaches out to him with the promise of salvation…for a price.
• Ben’s made his fair share of bad choices in the past, but will it matter if he makes this one for the right reasons? And more importantly, will that be enough to save his soul?
