The films in the Top Ten that opened this weekend at the box office:
The House with a Clock in Its Walls is a 2018 American dark fantasy comedy film directed by Eli Roth, based on the 1973 novel of the same name by John Bellairs, and starring Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, Owen Vaccaro, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Sunny Suljic, and Kyle MacLachlan. The film follows a young boy who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house, which is haunted by the ghost of the original owner, who is about to end the world with a clock he had made and hidden within the house before his death.
Fahrenheit 11/9 is a 2018 American political documentary by filmmaker Michael Moore about the 2016 United States presidential election and the subsequent presidency of Donald Trump. The film had its world premiere on September 6, 2018 at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, and was released in the United States on September 21, 2018, by Briarcliff Entertainment. It received mostly positive reviews, with review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes saying it “[preaches] to a specific choir, but for anyone who’s enjoyed Moore’s filmography [it is] another worthy chapter.”
Next week sees the release of: Smallfoot, Night School, Little Women, Hell Fest, Black 47, The Old Man & the Gun, and a plethora of other mainstream and independent films. Find my predictions on these releases in the weekly The Bottom Line column. A preview: Fahrenheit 11/9 will be Number One at the box office next weekend.
