Box Office Report

  • Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Fox – September 30th, 2016 – $20-30 million

Green means that it made more money than I predicted. Red means that it made less. Blue means that I got the prediction right.

I’m still pretty shocked that Blair Witch didn’t have a better opening weekend. Especially seeing as this has been a strong year for horror. Maybe it should’ve opened closer to Halloween. Not all that surprised that I didn’t get my Magnificent Seven prediction right. I’m not a western guy at this point in my life.

I got my Storks prediction right. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m always happy when animation makes money. Honestly, I’m a little bit surprised that Deepwater Horizon didn’t make more money than it did. The Peregrine‘s film, on the other hand, was a pretty easy prediction to make.
