Bullet train is on pace to lead the box office for the second weekend in a row in what is shaping up to be one of the quietest weekends in months. Without big new movies opening, Deadline announces it Bullet train is on pace to earn $12 million plus, and it had grossed $3.75 million as of Friday. If it manages to gross what Deadline expects, it will mean a 58% drop. This sounds stiff, but is a decent team in a year where Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness fell 67% in its second weekend and Thor: Love and Thunder fell 68 per cent. Although it is not a huge blockbuster, Bullet train may still cross the $100 million mark domestically as it has very little competition over the next few weeks.
New releases like Fall and Body Body Body didn’t make much of a peep, med Fall expected to win less than DKK 2 million Body Body Body should make about $3 million. These numbers are pretty small, but not much else will come out in the next six weeks. Nothing big opens up until Olivia Wilde’s Don’t worry honey on 23 September. Nothing actually looks set to set the box office on fire until October Halloween endsopens on the 14th and Black Adam released the following week. One of the reasons is a slowdown in the supply chain, a situation Vulture recently outlined, which has caused many release date mix-ups. This actually doesn’t come at a good time with the box office recently on the upswing. However, the advantage is that smaller films can suffer Three thousand years of longing and Universal’s Bros may have an excellent chance of finding an audience in the meantime Bullet train has very little competition to keep it from hitting the magical $100 million.
