A decent weekend for the old guys as “A Walk in the Woods” reaches for an audience Hollywood generally ignores, and finds it. It’s earned a few million since opening Wed., and is expected to near $13 million over the long Labor Day Weekend.
That’s a lot more than “Transporter Refueled,” a film which emphasizes the presence of movie stars in at least this one franchise. It’ll have managed a rather poor $8 million by Monday night.
“War Room” is still making money for Sony-Affirm and the Kendrick Brothers, and looks to win the weekend — all four days of it — thanks to adding 400 screens. “Straight Outta Compton”is running neck and neck with it, but is expected to come in close to “War Room” in the $11.5-11.9 range.
Check out the top ten and look at the REAL money makers of the summer — “Inside Out” and “Mission: Impossible” have stuck around long enough to reach into the hundreds of millions (@$180 for MI, almost $350 for Inside).
“Jurassic World” did over $644 million. Proving people don’t mind watching reruns, and will even pay for the privilege.
