number one at the Box Office

October is driven by horror flicks in the film industry. After opening at No. 1 last weekend, Paramount’s new film Smile maintained its No. 1 position for the second consecutive week.

The picture is expected to gross $17.6 million with a fall of just 22%, a great achievement for horror films. Smile has already made close to $90 million globally.

Smile also surpassed two new films, including Sony’s family comedy Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, which debuted with $11.5 million in American cinemas.

Sony allegedly anticipates the film to do well on Indigenous Peoples’ Day on Monday and make about $13.4 million. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film was predicted to win the weekend.

In contrast, David O. Russell’s Amsterdam falls well short of its objectives.

Despite a legendary ensemble that included Margot Robbie, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Christian Bale, the picture failed to attract viewers, grossing around $6.5 million at the box office. With a budget of $80 million, this is not good, making Amsterdam a box office flop.

The Woman King, starring Viola Davis, debuted at No. 4 with $6.5 million, followed by Don’t Worry, Darling, starring Olivia Wilde, which fell to No. 5 with $5.3 million.

Avatar’s re-release has also been successful, bringing in $2.6 million to add to its existing total; it ranks sixth. With $2.15 million, the gross for the romantic comedy Bros decreased by 56%.

Because the film’s core cast is made solely of LGBTQ+ performers, star and co-writer Eichner speculated that homophobia may have contributed to the film’s disappointing opening weekend.

Despite positive reviews and Universal’s anticipation that word-of-mouth would encourage more people to attend the picture this month, it seems like the film’s theatrical run will be a failure.
