As of early Saturday, Deadline.com was calling the box office race this weekend too close to call.
The jaunty newcomer “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves,” did $16 million via Wed and Thursday previews and daytime ticket sales Friday, a probable $40 million take by Sunday night. The weekend looks like a $30 million winner.
But it may not be. The winner, I mean. There’s this little blockbuster, “John Wick 4,” on its second weekend, and also seems en route to $30 million three day take. Considering how enthusiastic the audience seemed last weekend, that number could be low. It opened at over $70 million, and should clear the $125 million mark by midnight Sunday.
The faith-based historical drama “His Only Son” might open at $6 million.
“Creed III” is holding audience better than “Scream VI.” The boxing picture looks to add another $5 million or so.
“Scream” should scare up another $4.5.
SUNDAY update from Box Office Pro below, three day weekend figures. “Dungeons” managed $38 and change since Wednesday.
