The dog days of August are definitely here and with the studios not leaving much in the box office to excite after a strong opening to the summer, it’s a slow crawl for awhile. This weekend does have some good stuff in the theater and Bullet Train holds the top spot with a $13.4 million take to bring it to $54.4 million since its debut the weekend prior.
The kids side continues to get a bit of love from the League of Super Pets as it adds another $7 million to bring it to $58.3 million since getting underway.
While a lot of the list are familiar titles, there are a few other things sneaking in as well and one of those is the limited A24 release of Bodies Bodies Bodies, which did $3.5 million in its arrival on 1,275 screens.
Next week only has one film going wide with Universal’s Beast which could be a surprise as it has the draw of Idris Elba but is also the perfect period to move a new horror piece into play as August tends to do well there.
