‘Don’t Breathe’ Is Number One at Box Office Over 4-Day Weekend

Posted by at 3:24 pm on September 5, 2016


Four day results are in and Don’t Breathe has taken the #1 spot with an estimated $19.5 million bringing its domestic gross-to-date just shy of $55 million. Finishing in second was Suicide Squad with an estimated $12.8 million as its domestic cumulative total has reached $300.2 million, becoming the eighth 2016 release to hit that mark.

As expected, the weekend’s two new wide releases, The Light Between Oceans and Morgan, didn’t fare too well. Disney’s release of Dreamworks’ Light Between Oceans only managed $5.9 million for the four-day and an eighth place finish while Fox’s Morgan could only manage $2.4 million from 2,020 theaters and a finish outside the top 15.

While the weekend’s two new wide releases—The Light Between Oceans and Morgan—failed to have much of an impact on the overall weekend, Sony’s horror/thriller Don’t Breathe became the first horror film to top the weekend box office two weekends in a row since 2014. On top of that, Bad Moms has now crossed the $100 million mark domestically, Suicide Squad will soon top $300 million and The Secret Life of Pets moved up another notch on the all-time animated list while Finding Dory continued to pad its lead.

With an estimated $15.7 million three-day weekend Screen Gems’ Don’t Breathe finished atop the box office for a second weekend in a row with a drop of just 41% as its cume now sits just over $51 million after ten days in release. The film, which carries a budget just under $10 million, is looking to add another $3.7 million on Monday for a four-day haul of nearly $20 million and a cume approaching $55 million.

Dropping just 18% in its fifth weekend in release, Suicide Squad scored a second place finish with an estimated $10 million three-day weekend. The film is now looking to pull in another $3+ million on Monday as its domestic cume should cross $300 million by the end of the day Monday or early on Tuesday, becoming the eighth release of 2016 to cross that mark and making it the 15th highest grossing superhero release of all-time domestically, pushing ahead of Man of Steel ($291m).

Internationally Suicide Squad added another $11.8 million this weekend from 65 territories, pushing its overseas gross to $375.5 million and its worldwide gross to $672.9 million. The film is set to open in Japan this weekend.
