Box Office: October 28-30, 2016
Boo! A Madea Halloween was Number One at the box office for the second weekend in a row with $16.6 Million. Inferno premiered in Second Place with $15 Million. That is below what experts had predicted for the third Dan Brown book-to-film adaptation. With a production budget of $75 Million, $15 Million is not good opening (especially with its undisclosed marketing cost). Luckily the film has already garnered $132.7 Million internationally, which may help Sony Pictures and Columbia Pictures break even.
Doctor Strange opened internationally this weekend with $86 Million.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back was Third at the domestic box office with $9.5 Million. The Accountant was Fourth with $8.4 Million. Ouija: Origin of Evil was Fifth with $7 Million. The Girl on the Train, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Keeping Up with the Joneses, Storks, and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil rounded out the top ten respectively.
Inferno is a 2016 American mystery thriller film directed by Ron Howard and written by David Koepp, based on the 2013 novel of the same name by Dan Brown. The film is the sequel to The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, is the third installment in the Robert Langdon film series, and stars Tom Hanks, reprising his role as Robert Langdon, alongside Felicity Jones, Omar Sy, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Ben Foster and Irrfan Khan.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is a 2016 Indian romantic drama film written and directed by Karan Johar. It features Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in lead roles.
