Box Office Top 3: Nostalgia's Not Enough For Two New Releases
Meanwhile, Clint Eastwood's "Sully" remains on top of the weekend domestic box office.By Ryan Biek | September 18, 2016
It's every pilot's nightmare but a movie producer's dream. Clint Eastwood's "Sully" just cruised its way to a second straight weekend ranked No. 1 for the domestic box office.
"Sully" earned $22 million, leaving every other film in the dust. And with over $70 million domestically under its belt, the question is if, or when, the movie will pass the $100 million mark.
Coming into the weekend, some were predicting "Blair Witch" might upset "Sully," but in the end, it wasn't even close. The horror film only captured roughly $9.6 million on its opening weekend –– about $11 million less than forecast.
