This weekend we now have one other sure-fire winner that provides to the notion that unique theatrical releases do stable enterprise on the field workplace. Candyman opened this weekend and it exceeded expectations by debuting properly forward of its monitoring numbers.

Candyman opened to a stable $22.4 million this weekend. The movie was monitoring within the mid-teen vary so it is a implausible end result for the film this weekend. Additionally encouraging for the movie is that it wasn’t solely frontloaded. Candyman noticed an 8% enhance in grosses from Friday to Saturday which is a really uncommon feat for the horror style. Candyman carries a $25 million finances and even the movie craters subsequent weekend, Common and MGM may have a average hit on their palms.

Falling to second is Free Man with $13.55 million. The Ryan Reynolds-led movie had one other implausible maintain because it solely fell 27% from final weekend. Very like Candyman which completed in first place this weekend, Free Man is one other stable instance that respecting the theatrical window and never additionally going streaming results in nice field workplace outcomes. On the finish of the weekend, Free Man has collected a stable $79.3 million thus far. Free Man additionally opened in China this weekend to a powerful $23.9 million which introduced its world whole to $179.9 million

In third place, we now have Paw Patrol which grossed $6.6 million. The movie dropped 50% from its higher than anticipated earlier weekend however we now have to understand that the film can be out there to stream on Paramount+. After two weekends, the movie has collected $24 million and I’d must think about that the studio is fairly happy with its efficiency to this point.

In fourth place, we discover Jungle Cruise which crossed a big field workplace milestone after pulling in $5 million this weekend. The Disney movie crossed the $100 million mark which is one thing to be celebrated in the course of the pandemic-era field workplace. Additionally of significance is that the movie solely dropped 21% this weekend which is a superb maintain for a film in its fifth weekend. So far, Jungle Crusie has grossed $100.1 million.

Rounding out the highest 5 is Don’t Breathe 2 which grossed $2.8 million. The movie fell 48% weekend-to-weekend which is a fairly stable maintain given the truth that Candyman additionally entered {the marketplace} because the horror film of selection this weekend. We’ve already mentioned that Don’t Breathe 2 has not had the identical legs as its 2016 predecessor however with a finances of $15 million, its $24.6 million gross thus far has already eased the movie into average profitability.

In sixth place, we now have Respect which grossed $2.2 million. I nonetheless keep {that a} winter launch nearer to Oscar season would’ve benefitted the movie extra. The movie turned out there on PVOD over the weekend so I believe extra folks will uncover the film through that platform. So far, Respect has pulled in $19.7 million.

In seventh we now have The Suicide Squad which fell 40% to $2 million. So far, the movie has grossed $52.8 million and I’m nonetheless questioning how Warner Bros. feels about its efficiency to date. As of this weekend, The Suicide Squad is off of HBO Max after 30 days of availability and it’s nonetheless not fairly clear how properly the movie has carried out on that platform.

In eighth and ninth place we now have new releases from final weekend that hardly registered and continued to be non-performers in weekend two. The Protege pulled in $1.65 million, falling 40% from its lackluster debut final weekend. So far, The Protege has grossed $5.7 million. The art-house horror movie The Evening Home follows The Protege in ninth place with $1.2 million. The movie collapsed 58% from final weekend which is normal for horror and much more normal for a horror movie that wows critics however leaves the final moviegoing public scratching their heads. I believe that The Evening Home will discover its life after it exits theaters however for now, we now have a subpar gross of $5.1 million which isn’t a great end result for a movie that Searchlight paid $12 million to accumulate.

Rounding out the highest ten is Black Widow which grossed $855,000. It’s a slim decline of 23% and the movie nonetheless has the bragging rights of being the highest-grossing home launch of the 12 months. So far, Black Widow has grossed $181.5 million.
