It was a second quiet week in a row which led to Ouija spend another week at number 1 with takings of $10.7m. Despite the overwhelmingly positive critical response, Nightcrawler, had a relatively week opening weekend with a gross of just $10.4m. I watched the film tonight and while Jake Gyllenhaal gives a really strong performance I wasn’t blown away by the film as a whole. I wonder if the trailers and Gyllenhaal’s quirky character put cinema goers off.
The top three was rounded off by Fury that continues to be shown in more theatres than any other film in the chart. The film grossed $8.8m over the weekend meaning it has managed takings of $60.1m after three weeks of release.
Next week will see Interstellar land in the box office and will probably decimate everything in its path. It’ll probably be a matter of how much.
