Sully Is Still #1 at Box Office
For the weekend of September 16-18, 2016, Sully hung on strong and laid waste to all newcomers. A mere 37% drop is impressive, and it looks like this one will be one with long legs, even if The Magnificent Seven bumps it from the top spot next week.
Blair Witch had been tracking in the high teens last week but a slew of negative reviews may have killed its momentum. it only had a $5 million production budget, so it's still profitable. Hopes to relaunch the franchise might be dashed.
Bridget Jones's Baby opened just under what Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason opened to in 2004, so one wonders why this was greenlit in the first place.

Opens September 23
THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN with Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke.
STORKS with the voices of Andy Samberg, Kelsey Grammer and Keegan-Michael Key.
