Box Office Breakdown! It’s Bombs Away! Sully Soars But Blair Witch, Snowden and Bridget Jones Tank! Doh!

Suddenly Susan is out this week kissing the Blarney Stone and drinking some Guinness in Ireland! I’m taking over her duties today!

Sully soared taking the number one spot for the second weekend. It gave a much needed boost to Warner Bros!

No one wanted to go back in the woods with Blair Witch. The horror franchise no one wanted rebooted made less than 10 million bucks!

Speaking of a sequel no one wanted, Bridget Jone’s Baby was third with just over eight million


Snowden didn’t light a spark either making just about eight million dollars as well. How many bombs is this for Joseph Gordon Levitt?

In week four Don’t Breathe continued to scare up some cash getting another 5.6 million in the coffer!

Sony’s When the Bough Breaks tumbled 61%, expect this one to fall out of the top ten next week!

Suicide Squad is heading into week seven and is ready to call it. With over 300 million domestic no one’s complaining… except audiences.

The Wild Life opened… or did it? With only 2.65 million for the weekend this animated film hasn’t got legs.

Kubo and the Two Strings has made about 44 million dollars so far. Expect this one to make up some ground internationally.

I’m going with The Magnificent Seven for the win!
