Magnificent Seven is #1 at box office
For the weekend of September 23-25, 2016, The Magnificent Seven was a yet another hit for Denzel Washington, for Chris Pratt, for director Antoine Fuqua. It's also a nice Training Day reunion for Washington, Fuqua, and Ethan Hawke.
Storks didn't open as well as a September animated movie might hope, but its budget wasn't too big and it seems like the type of film that'll translate well overseas. Ice Age 5 ultimately was profitable thanks to overseas business.
Jason Bourne's on the verge of crossing $400 million worldwide.
More people saw the bad Ben-Hur remake than have seen Hell or High Water. Come on, people! You've got to see Hell or High Water. Don't be surprised if it's nominated for Picture, Director, Screenplay, and Supporting Actor (Ben Foster) in a few months.
