It was a long summer. Many much-touted, mega-budget films hit the skids garnering neither good reviews nor expected box office bucks. Remember “The Legend of Tarzan,” “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” and “Star Trek: Beyond”? I didn’t think so.
Fall and winter movie slates usually offer much better fare as the movie business gets into award season and more motion pictures of real quality appear with good box office appeal.

A good example of this is the new Tom Hanks movie, directed by Clint Eastwood, called “Sully.” It was expected to take in around $23 million it’s opening weekend, but actually garnered a very healthy total $35.6 million putting in the number 1 spot at the box office. It’s per screen average was $10,072, the best in the top ten list from the weekend.

In second place was another newcomer “When the Bough Breaks” at $15 million followed by “Don’t Breathe” at $8.2 million, “Suicide Squad” at $5.7 million and “The Wild Life” at $3.4 million.
