Friday Box Office: ‘Don’t Breathe’ Chokes ‘Suicide Squad’

Don’t Breathe exploded this weekend, giving Screen Gems their highest opening of August. Also, the film managed a pretty impressive feat, getting a B+ cinemascore, which is great for horror titles. B+ is basically an A in this genre. The other new wide entry, Mechanic Resurrection flopped, with only 6.8M in weekend.

Of the holdovers, Bad Moms continues to be a force, dropping only 32%. At the end of the weekend, it should be at 95M, which puts it a lock for 100M. Jason Bourne held well, dipping 38%. On the other end, Ben Hur fell 61%, adding insult to injury. It’s almost out of the Top 10. Sausage Party continues to struggle in the long game, falling another 53$.

The other two new releases from last weekend are seeing mixed results. Kubo is projected to drop 42%, which isn’t too bad, but War Dogs fell 56%. Two new films also opened in moderate release, but Southside With You is crushing Hands Of Stone. 1.8M does not bode well for a wide expansion next weekend.
