Now In-Theater: October 13, 2017
The motion pictures now in-theater are from various Hollywood and independent movie studios. Some of the films are in wide release (600 screens or more in the United States and Canada) and some are in limited release (a motion picture that is playing in a select few theaters across the country [typically in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco]).
This Week’s In-Theater Releases

WASTED! The Story of Food Waste
Blade Runner 2049 should be Number One at the box office this weekend. I said “should” instead of “will be” because The Foreigner looks like a strong action entry into the box office, one of the strongest in years for Jackie Chan. Instead of the complexity of Blade Runner 2049, moviegoers might gravitate towards a standard meat-and-potatoes action film. In addition, the action in The Foreigner looks great, thanks in no small part to director Martin Campbell (GoldenEye, The Mask of Zorro, Casino Royale).
One must also consider the drop that Blade Runner 2049 will endure as this will be its second week at the box office. With those factors in mind, it may be a neck-and-neck race for the Top Spot at the box office for Blade Runner 2049 and The Foreigner (in the low-to-mid 20 million dollar range).
The Foreigner should be Second at the box office this weekend.
Happy Death Day will be Third. Happy Death Day will benefit from being a horror movie, funny, and there being nothing else like it at the box office this weekend. The Groundhog Day / mystery aspect of the film will bolster its performance as well.
The Mountain Between Us will be Fourth at the box office this weekend.
Marshall should pull in just enough money to be Fifth this weekend over It, which will be in its sixth week of release this weekend at the box office.
This will be the one and only weekend at the box office in which Marshall is in the Top Five.
