Box Office Recap – 09/17/2018


Predator is devouring its rivals at the box office. 20thCentury Fox reports the film earned $24 million to land at the top spot; but its high production costs ($88 million) may not have the studio doing cartwheels. 

The Shane Black-helmed film will reportedly be looking to international markets to balance the books. This weekend, Predator nabbed $30.7 million in 72 foreign markets. Domestic audiences were primarily male (62%) and white (45%). The underwhelming C+ CinemaScore reflected the ambivalent critical response. 

Second place went to The Nun, which earned $18.2 million in its second weekend out. To date, the Conjuring spinoff has nabbed $85 million.

Lionsgate’s A Simple Favor, starring Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively, closed out the top three with $16.1 million.
