Jigsaw Tops The Weekend, Suburbicon DOA

This weekend saw the wide release of Jigsaw, Thank You for Your Service, and Suburbicon. Sadly, only one of those films managed to do well this weekend.

In number one is Jigsaw with a solid $16.25 million. Considering the $10 million budget and the rather negative reception from critics, that’s about as good as it could have been expected to do. While it’ll likely make its money back, it won’t exactly set the world on fire for Lionsgate.

In second place is Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween with $10.0 million, dropping around 52.3 percent from its first weekend. With Thor: Ragnarok coming in next weekend, this is likely its last strong showing, though it’ll likely still hit $50 million when all said and done in its theatrical run.

In third place is Geostorm, dropping nearly 59 percent from its already-disappointing weekend.

Thank You for Your Service and Suburbicon debuted with $3.7 million and $2.8 million, respectively. Given their $20 and $25 million budgets, they’ll have a hard time recouping their costs with these numbers, which is disappointing, especially for Thank You for Your Service, which was a solid film.

The top 10 domestic weekend box office estimates, listed in descending order, per data collected as of Sunday, October 29, are below.

  1. Jigsaw – Lionsgate – $16.3M
