Jigsaw was the #3 movie this weekend after being knocked down by Thor: Ragnarok ($121,000,000) and A Bad Moms Christmas ($17,030,000). The eighth Saw movie was met with $6,700,000 in ticket sales, which bumped its total American gross to $28,836,000. All factors and costs combined, Jigsaw has officially made back its entire budget and is another hit for Lionsgate, and it’s already performed better than 2009’s Saw VI.
Happy Death Day remained in the top ten movies at the box office this weekend and saw an addition $2,815,000 in ticket sales. Its current total sits at $52,967,000, blowing past the $50,000,000 mark. Can it get to $60,000,000? IT was the #14 movie and still managed to scare $1,008,000 out of movie viewers, bringing its total to $325,886,000. As this movie begins to die out, we’ll always remember it as horror’s little engine that could.
The Killing of a Sacred Deer continued to expand its theatrical run, adding an addition 55 screenings to its tally and $401,000 in ticket sales this weekend. It’s made $908,000 so far and I expect that number to get much bigger as it continues to branch out. Tragedy Girls continued to grow its theater count, too, going from 18 to 22 screens and taking in $10,000 at the box office. Its current ticket gross is $46,000.
Also, My Friend Dahmer debuted at the #37 spot with $45,000 in sales. It was only released to four theaters via FilmRise, but I think it’s going to expand as well because that ticket gross is insane for an indie movie in select theaters. I’m excited to see where it goes from here.
