Coming absolutely out of nowhere, NIGHTCRAWLER springs to the top of the North American Box Office this Halloween weekend with a tepid $11 million opening from 2,766 theatres for Open Road Films/Elevation Pictures, just edging-out OUIJA. Reviews are astoundingly good for the TIFF ’14 Selection at 93% on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer from Critics, although it didn’t test as well with Audiences with a B- CinemaScore. This the latest in a long line of Box Office successes for Star and Producer Jake Gyllenhaal, with three of his last four releases topping North America.
OUIJA after debuting on-top last weekend slips to second this weekend, quenching the thirsts of the Horror-hungry with $10.9 million from 2,899 theatres for Universal Pictures. In two weeks, the Film has grossed approximately $35 million.
FURY sits in third spot with $9 million for Sony Pictures this weekend in its third week out. To date it has grossed $60.5 million domestically.
JOHN WICK slips to fourth spot in its second week out with $8 million for Lionsgate Films/eOne Films, nearing the $30-million mark so far.
GONE GIRL continues to be a Box Office smash for 20th Century Fox in fifth with $7 million in its fifth week. The David Fincher Thriller is edging closer towards that $150 million mark and likely will do so in the next week.
ST. VINCENT settles in seventh for The Weinstein Co. and eOne Films with $6.5 million, closing-in on $20 million in its four-week run.
DRACULA UNTOLD bottoms-out the Top Ten with $2.5 million in its fourth week for Universal Pictures.
