FRIDAY AM UPDATE: Jack Reacher: Never Go Back got off to a great start last night, bringing in $1.325 million from Thursday night previews in 2,850 theaters. Compared to recent releases this is just a bit shy of the $1.35 million The Accountant brought in on Thursday night last weekend before opening with $24.7 million and almost $500k more than the $860k brought in by Deepwater Horizon last month before opening with $20.2 million. Another comparison would be last year's Black Mass, which b... (Box Office Mojo - Top Stories 20-Oct-16)Gugu Mbatha-Raw Joins Ava DuVernay's 'A Wrinkle in Time'

Warner Bros.'s The Accountant stormed well ahead of BoxOfficeMojo's weekend forecast to finish #1 for the weekend. The Ben Affleck starrer more than than doubled its closest competition, which found a pair of Universal titles competing for second place between the debut of Kevin Hart: What Now? and last weekend's #1 film, The Girl on the Train. Meanwhile, Open Road's Max Steel finished outside the top ten with one of the worst openings ever for a film debuting in over 2,000 theaters. Overal...

SATURDAY AM UPDATE: As expected, it will be Universal and DreamWorks's The Girl on the Train at the top of the weekend box office as the film brought in an estimated $9.35 million on Friday and is heading toward a $26+ million opening. Reviews for the film, unfortunately, settled in around a 43% rating on RottenTomatoes and the CinemaScore from opening day audiences was only a "B-", which doesn't bode all that well for its future prospects.

Looking at a second place finish is Lionsgate's Deepwater Horizon, which brought in an estimated $7 million on Friday and is headed toward an opening around $19-20 million, which will b...

It wasn't quite the weekend we forecasted on Thursday afternoon as Sony's The Magnificent Seven remake and WB's animated Storks both fell short of Mojo's lofty expectations. The weekend overall didn't look much better as the top twelve failed to combine for $100 million for the fifth weekend in a row and the weekend itself was down 25% compared to the same weekend last year. At the top, Sony and MGM's The Magnificent Seven turned in an estimated $35 million opening from 3,674 theaters,...

While it won't be living up to Mojo's expectations, opening day audiences did give it an "A-" CinemaScore, which does bode well for its future prospects.
