We deliver a weekly Box Office Report that’s a little different. Rather than focusing on the money, FSR senior editor Christopher Campbell is more interested in the estimated attendance — or number of tickets sold. Because the value of money changes over the years, but the value of actual moviegoers remains the same.
We compare the debut of the new ‘Ghostbusters’ movie to others in the franchise and consider the potential for a sequel.
‘Last Night in Soho’ and ‘Antlers’ fell short in a generally disappointing weekend at the box office for horror movies, while Joanna Hogg’s sequel ‘The Souvenir: Part II’ was a hit in limited release.
The new movie gave Denis Villeneuve his biggest opening ever, and it has proven to be a great financial success for Warner Bros. as well.
Meanwhile, Ridley Scott had the worst debut of his directorial career with ‘The Last Duel.’

We break down the opening weekend attendance for Marvel’s latest superhero movie and look at where and why it’s such a success.
