‘End of Watch’ Remains #1 on Tuesday

on September 26, 2012 by Daniel Garris

Open Road's End of Watch grossed $1.48 million on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a third consecutive day. The low-budget police drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña was up 17 percent over Monday. That actually represented the day's poorest daily hold among wide releases, as daily grosses in general on Tuesday received a boost from the beginning of the Yom Kippur holiday. With $15.91 million in five days, End of Watch continues the lead the way among this week's four new wide releases. The film is currently running 3 percent stronger than the $15.46 million five-day start of 2010's Brooklyn's Finest.

Trouble with the Curve held steady in second place with $1.24 million. After displaying fairly average early holding power the past few days, the Warner Bros. drama starring Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams was up an impressive 45 percent on Tuesday. Trouble with the Curve has grossed $14.25 million through five days of release, which is a bit below expectations and 37 percent below the $22.76 million five-day start of last year's Moneyball.

Relativity's House at the End of the Street grossed $0.94 million to remain in third. The low-budget PG-13 horror film starring Jennifer Lawrence increased a very healthy 54 percent over Monday. House at the End of the Street has grossed $13.84 million in its first five days, which is below expectations and 41 percent softer than the $23.32 million five-day start of The Woman in Black earlier this year.

Lionsgate's Dredd 3D took in $0.73 million to continue to claim fourth place. The 3D comic book adaptation starring Karl Urban increased 29 percent over Monday's performance. Despite solid reviews and a pre-existing fanbase, Dredd 3D has only managed a disappointing $7.58 million in five days of release, placing it 23 percent behind the $9.90 million five-day start of last year's The Thing.
