Box Office Weekend – Labor Day Hijinx

Box Office
This weekend at the box office, there were no new releases of note, but plenty of movies still benefited from the holiday weekend.

 

Since there were no new wide releases this weekend in anticipation of IT: Chapter Two, all the talk will be about holdovers. The only two movies that saw expansions of over a thousand theaters were Toy Story 4 (which fell outside of the Top Twelve for the weekend’s box office) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (which saw a slightly-extended director’s cut). Both fared well, but Spider-Man: Far From Home got a good-sized boost that puts its running total past $385M, giving it a shot of clearing $400M domestic if it can remain in most of the theaters that it’s in over the next weekend or so.

 

In the top twelve, only four movies saw drops over the four-day weekend: Angel Has Fallen, Overcomer, Ready or Not, and The Angry Birds Movie 2. Everything else at the box office saw a rise in revenue, with some being significant (like Spider-Man: Far From Home) and others being small (like Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw). Since there’s not much else to say here, let’s just get into the box office totals for the weekend.
