This weekend, the horror movie Candyman took the box office top spot. The horror movie easily had no problem taking down Free Guy. Jordan Peele continues to help create amazing horror films.
Candyman Slaying it in the Box Office
Candyman grossed an estimated $22.3 million in its first weekend. The COVID-19 pandemic delayed the move three times. It seems that the movie will be doing great in its theatrical run. Its foreign-run had been rather small. At the moment, it only grossed $351,000 at the international box office. Expect this movie to have a larger presence around Halloween even though horror movies do great during the summer.
Free Guy is still making money for Disney. This film was able to gross an estimated $13.5 million this weekend. Currently, it’s sitting at $79.3 million domestically and $179 million worldwide. Look for the film to come home on September 28th in all major digital formats. The Blu-Ray/DVD version will be coming out on October 12th. PAW Patrol: The Movie grossed $6.6 million this weekend. The animated film is sitting in third place even as it’s playing on Paramount+. Most of the movies that have been released digitally have done well except for one movie. The Suicide Squad has dropped down to $2 million as it now sits at $144 million worldwide.
