Weekend Box Office Wrap-up: September 3, 2017

Samuel L Jackson as Darius Kincaid in The Hitman's Bodyguard

It was the worst Labor Day box office weekend since 1999, signaling the end of a down summer at the multiplex.

In first for the third consecutive week is The Hitman's Bodyguard, which brought in $10.2 million. The action-comedy is now up to $54.9 million domestically, nearly doubling its $30 million production budget just in the States. Lionsgate was certainly smart in where they positioned the film, which has been able to post decent numbers despite a mostly negative critical reception.

Coming in second is Annabelle: Creation with $7.3 million. The horror spinoff/prequel raised its domestic total to $88.9 million. It's earned a whopping $253.3 million worldwide, becoming a massive hit to close out summer 2017.

Wind River comes in third, earning $5.8 million in its fifth weekend. The drama now stands at $18.2 million domestically.

Animated film Leap! is #4 with $4.8 million. The Weinstein Company's latest has now made $11.3 million in the U.S.

Rounding out the top five is Logan Lucky. The hillbilly heist film from Steven Soderbergh grossed $4.4 million in its third weekend, raising its Stateside total to $21.4 million.

In sixth is Dunkirk, which made $4.1 million. Christopher Nolan's World War II epic increased its domestic haul to $178.7 million.

In seventh once more is Spider-Man: Homecoming, which made $3.6 million to raise its U.S. total to $324 million. It is currently one of only four 2017 releases to make $300+ million at the domestic box office, showing just how dire things have been at the marketplace so far this year.

Coming in eighth is The Emoji Movie, which earned $2.4 million in its sixth weekend. Sony's animated movie now stands at $80.3 million. Surprisingly, the Stateside gross is more than the international numbers, and the film has made just $159.5 million worldwide. That probably isn't what the studio was hoping for when they green lit the project. It remains to be seen if that return is enough to warrant a sequel, though Emoji has turned a small profit due to its moderate budget.

The #9 film this weekend is Despicable Me 3. Illumination's latest blockbuster earned $2.3 million to raise its U.S. total to $257.8 million.

Capping off the top 10 is Girls Trip with $2.2 million. The comedy hasn't slowed down since opening in late July, now standing at $111.5 million domestically.
