Normally by Monday morning, we know which movie has topped the chart over the weekend, but not so today, as there are three movies which could end up on top when final figures are released later on. Based on estimates, both End Of Watch and House At The End Of The Street took $13 million, while Trouble With The Curve was close behind with $12.7. There’s a chance any of those movie could end up at number one when final figures are tallied.
None of them can be described as a breakout hit, although End Of Watch and Trouble With The Curve certainly won’t be disappointed, as many had wondered whether they’d struggle more than they have.
Dredd however came to earth with a thud, taking $6 million to place sixth on the chart. While the film has had good reviews, it doesn’t seem to have struck a chord with American audiences, which is a shame.
The Master also made its first appearance in the top 10, after breaking records in extremely limited release last week. The film took $5 million as it expanded from five to 788 screens. With ecstatic reviews, it should continue to play well over the next few weeks.
Take a look below for the US box office top 10 (based on estimates) for the weekend of September 21st-23rd.
