New movies finally taking the lead again at the box office after a very long and interesting Summer! Finding it's way to the #1 spot is "The Maze Runner" with a solid 32.5 million for it's debut. Word-of-mouth is fair on this one so could do OK in the long run for the season. This was pretty on par with my predictions. New at #2 is "Walk Among the Tombstones" with 13.1 mil and below general expectations. Also new at #3 is "This is Where I Leave You" with an 11.9 mil debut and not much buzz on this one, this was close to on point with predictions as well. Holding some ground at #4 is "No Good Deed" with an extra 10.2 mil as it slowly comes to an end of its run. Rounding off the top 5 is "Dolphin Tale 2" with another 9 mil and lesser drop than most films. This still has some juice in it but no doubt will be the last time in the top 5.

New movies next week:
Two new wide releases this week as the family friendly "Boxtrolls" opens and looks to be a solid mid-season film. With about 3300+ screens in North America, this should open to a decent 20 mil but from reviews and the look, should have some strong legs for a bit. Hitting about 3000+ screens is "The Equalizer" with an expected opening of 30+ mil and that could be possible with a solid action film starring Denzel Washington and Chloe Grace Moretz.
