on September 17, 2015
Sony reports The Perfect Guy held onto first place Wednesday with $1.17 million, giving the pic a six-day haul of $30.66 million. The film is pacing 6 percent ahead of last September's fellow hit PG-13 thriller from Sony, No Good Deed.
In a close second place, Universal's The Visit posted $1.11 million yesterday. With $30.0 million banked in six days, the M. Night Shyamalan/Jason Blum collaboration is off to a strong start and is pacing 28 percent ahead of Shyamalan's Lady In the Water.
War Room claimed third place for Sony yesterday with another $0.71 million, off just 26 percent from the same day last week. The faith-based drama has tallied an impressive $42.1 million through 20 days of play, putting it 21 percent ahead of the pace of God's Not Dead.
Broad Green Pictures' A Walk In the Woods hadn't reported official figures at the time of publishing, although BoxOffice estimates it took in close to $ $0.545 million yesterday in fourth place. That gives the drama a healthy 15-day gross of $21.7 million.
Rounding out the top five, Straight Outta Compton was off 44 percent from last Wednesday to $0.32 million yesterday. The biopic has now amassed $156.7 million domestically.
