Box Office Round-Up ~ 11/7/23

It was a quiet post-Halloween weekend at the box office, with a more even split across the top five films thanks to no high profile new releases. Five Nights at Freddy’s dropped 76% from its debut to gross $19 million, perhaps due to streaming competition from Peacock and the fact that Halloween is over. Nonetheless, it has cleared $100 million overall domestically.

Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour finished up its fourth weekend with $13.6 million, while Killers of the Flower Moon cleared $50 million in the U.S. with a third-weekend gross of $6.8 million. In fourth place, Priscilla, from A24 and writer/director Sofia Coppola, expanded from four screens to over 1300 screens in its sophomore weekend, grossing $5 million. Finally, fifth place saw the U.S. release of Mexican hit Radical, starring Eugenio Derbez, with a debut of $2.6 million.

The coming weeks see the release of The Marvels, the sequel to Captain Marvel (from Marvel Studios, naturally), followed by prequel The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes. Finally, Thanksgiving week will see the release of Napoleon, from Ridley Scott and Joaquin Phoenix, and Walt Disney Animation’s Wish
