Movies

It was a small night for previews, but it’s a small weekend for wide entries with two thrifty budgeted movies. Sony/Screen Gems’ Deon Taylor Black and Blue starring 007’s Naomie Harris as a rookie New Orleans police officer who witnesses her fellow cops committing a murder drew $675K at 1,962 venues that began at 7PM.

STX has the $6.5M horror production Countdown which made $515K last night from 7pm shows, on par with such horror pics as 47 Meters Down Uncaged ($500K) and Hell Fest ($435k).  Both those pics opened to $8.4M ($22.2M) final) and $5.1M ($11.1M final) and Countdown is expected to open in the same single day range.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros./Village Roadshow/Bron Studios’ Joker is expected to rule supreme with $19M-$20M in its 4th weekend. Throughout its weekdays, it beat Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. However, the pic ends its third week with $40.7M, just behind Maleficent 2’s $46.8M. Maleficent 2 is poised to see a $15M-$16M second weekend, -58% for a 10-day of $62.8M.
