“Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children” Wins Box Office
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children won the box office in its debut weekend. Get the details and check out the full Top 10 below!
Miss Peregrine’s is the latest film offering from Tim Burton, who has a well-known love of the spooky and the kooky. That made the project a fitting one for the famed director, as the movie tells the story of a group of children with strange abilities, such as controlling air and resurrecting the dead. Based on the book of the same name, the big screen adaptation opened in first place with $28.5 million.
That was enough to top Mark Wahlberg’s Deepwater Horizon. Inspired by the devastating oil rig explosion in 2010, the disaster film debuted in second place with $20.6 million. Following in third was last week’s chart-topper, Magnificent Seven, having brought in $15.7 million. A total of $13.8 million in ticket sales earned Storks the fourth position. And with box office receipts of $8.4 million, Sully landed in fifth.
Making it into the Top 10 was Masterminds. The new comedy starring Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig, opened in the number six spot with $6.6 million in receipts. And a haul of just $2.6 million gave Queen Of Katwe a seventh place finish. Meanwhile, Don’t Breathe nabbed eighth place with $2.4 million, and Bridget Jones’s Baby secured ninth with $2.3 million. Sliding into the Top 10 and knocking out Suicide Squad was Snowden, earning $2 million.
