Weekend Box Office Report - 11-6-2017

Well, it took a couple weeks, but CAA is back on top at the box office, thanks to Thor’s mighty hammer and some bad moms celebrating Christmas.

It was not the end of the world for Thor: Ragnarok which opened in the U.S. this weekend to $121 million, Marvel’s seventh largest opening and $35 million more than the last Thor film. CAA reps director Taika Waititi and stars Chris Hemsworth and Cate Blanchett. In a canny bit of counter programming the Bad Moms Christmas themed sequel opened strongly at the number two spot to the tune of $17 million. Which should make CAA happy as it represents writers/directors Jon Lucas & Scott Moore and stars Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis.

There wasn’t much else new to report box office wise everything in the top ten are hangers on from previous weeks, except for the Sean Hannity produced Let There Be Light which expanded this week and cracked the top ten.

Next week can a Murder on the Orient Express shake the god of Thunder? Either way CAA will be happy as they represent director and star Kenneth Branaugh and Johnny Depp.
