"Happy Death Day" indeed! Solid opening weekend and good promise for consistency leading up to Halloween. This will probably peak around the $65M mark long-term.

"The Foreigner" opened exactly as expected ($13.1M), for better and for worse. Given the purchase price and expectation, I'd say for the better.

"Marshall" also opened poorly, as expected, with $3M. Don't expect this to sky-rocket to the top anytime soon.

This is a big weekend with a lot of new product vying for the number one spot. We'll see if any of it actually manages to do that. Non-spoiler alert, I think one of them will.

"We can control our weather.", "Are you going back up to space?", "We have to shut the system down.", The only one that has the kill codes is the president.", Seriously, we are kidnapping the president in a self-driving cab?". These are all quotes from the trailer for "Geostorm". I love disaster porn, but this movie looks like the only disaster is the hackneyed dialogue. Whoooooaaaahh! $15M

This is either the perfect time, or the worst time for "Only the Brave" to come out. The tears from the audience should be enough to put out the fires in this movie. I wonder how many innocent lives will be lost during this human interest story. $17M.

"The Snowman" is getting absolutely blasted by, of all people, critics in the Netherlands. You want globalization? Here you go in the form of public opinion. I had high hopes, but I think the best way to enjoy this movie is to skip the theatre and pick up the book. $12M.

The first "Madea Halloween" did me well and I expect no less from the sequel. I genuinely think that "A Madea Halloween 2" will be the number one movie come this time next week with $22M. Mark my words!
