Tim Burton’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children” eased into the number one box office position with a grand total of $28.5 million, which was about $5 million less than projected but still considered an excellent result. The film’s strongest appeal according to audience surveys is ages 25 and under. It also seems to have excellent prospects for international markets.

The frightfully realistic disaster movie, “Deepwater Horizon,” finished a close second in its first week in release at $20.6 million, almost $10 million less than expected. The top two movies this weekend both had production budgets of $110 million.

In third place at $15.7 million was “The Magnificent 7” followed by the animated movie “Storks” at $13.8 million and “Sully” was number 5 with $8.4 million. For all the details of the weekend box office race, click on the link below.
