The talk of The Martian breaking Gravity's October, opening weekend record began early and really spiked after the Ridley Scott film posted a better opening day than the 2013 Alfonso Cuaron sci-fi flick. However, estimates show The Martian coming up a shade shy of the $55.7 million October record. Provisioned with an "A" CinemaScore, though, this one should survive well week-to-week. 20th Century Fox is reporting an estimated $55 million weekend for The Martian, which puts it... (Box Office Mojo - Top Stories 04-Oct-15)Forecast: Can 'The Martian' Top 'Gravity's October Record?
You're going to hear references to Gravity a lot this weekend. One critic says Robert Zemeckis' The Walk "does what Gravity did for outer space" while Ridley Scott's The Martian is not only an outer space-set drama, but could possibly challenge Gravity's October opening weekend record, which was set this same weekend two years ago. However, those Gravity references may be short-lived if neither film is able to live up to the success the seven-time Oscar winner found two years ago...

The Drac Pack appears to be the new owner of the September box office as Hotel Transylvania 2 has followed in the footsteps of its 2012 predecessor and set a new September opening weekend record. In fact, it was a pretty good weekend all around for newcomers as Nancy Meyers has another solid opening on her hands, Eli Roth and BH Tilt scored good numbers with The Green Inferno and a selection of limited releases managed strong numbers on just a few screens. Overall the weekend was up 29.8% ... (Box Office Mojo - Top Stories 27-Sep-15)Forecast: 'Transylvania', 'Intern' & 'Inferno' Highlight Stacked Weekend
It's a stacked weekend with some notable holdovers and a pair of strong-performing limited releases from last weekend set to expand. Add to that a trio of newcomers including the latest from Nancy Meyers, an animated sequel and the curious decision from Jason Blum's newly formed BH Tilt to bring the long-delayed cannibal horror feature The Green Inferno to over 1,500 theaters. Let's peel this onion one layer at a time... Likely to easily top the box office is Hotel Transylvania 2, the ...

The weekend box office was bolstered by two strong openings for both new, major releases. The Screen Gems thriller, The Perfect Guy topped the box office with $26.7 million and M. Night Shyamalan's micro-budget thriller The Visit was a very close second with an estimated $25.6 million. Perfect Guy, which starred Michael Ealy (his third $25+ million opening in a row), Sanaa Lathan and Morris Chestnut, is now the third film in a row featuring a predominantly African American leading cast...

Sony is reporting that War Room, their faith-based film from Affirm Films, dropped a slight 18% in its second week, taking in $9.3M for the three-day domestic box office and the #1 spot on the charts. As far as the opening films, A Walk in the Woods, with $8.2M, ambled past the sputtering The Transporter Refueled, which made $7.2M. Neither of those films could move Straight Outta Compton out of the #2 spot, however, as the Universal hit made $8.7M, a slight 34% drop off from last week....
