Box Office: “Sully” Flies To First


The Clint Eastwood directed film “Sully” opened strong this weekend, while “Suicide Squad” keeps fighting in the top five.

The powerful story of Chesley Sullenberg, “Sully”, came in first at the box office this weekend. It took in $35.5 million in its debut.

The critically panned “When The Bough Breaks” scored a not-to-shabby $15 million over the weekend. It’s relatively small budget of $10 million made it a decent weekend for the film.

In its third week, “Don’t Breathe”, brought it $8.2 million. The film has been a huge success critically and financially.

In its sixth week “Suicide Squad” kept in the top five. It brought in $5.6 million over the weekend. It also hit $700 million worldwide, and $300 million domestically.

In fifth, the animated film “The Wild Life” brought in $3.4 million. It also had a budget of $13.5 million. If it can remain in the top five for two weeks, it might be able to break even.
