Success and failure, that is the best way to describe this past weekend’s box office!
In the top five positions at the box office there is only one newly released movie, and it’s in position number five! The submarine-thriller film staring Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman sank at the box office only bringing in a measly $6.6 Million. Normally this is the type of film that would crack at least $15 Million in its first weekend but bad reviews (check mine out here) and high performance from movies that were already in theaters kept it from raising any higher.
However, for Halloween, A Star is Born, and Venom there is nothing but praise to be given to these films. Each one has managed to stay in the top three since they were released. Already this October has broken the record for the most box office dollars ever in this month and it was all due to these three movies drawing in so many box office dollars. Universal Studios, Warner Brothers, and Sony are popping bottles after the month they had.
