Box Office Numbers: Aug 7-9, 2015

The latest box office numbers are in and surprise! Fantastic Four did not do well. Have you heard that enough? Well, it’s true, sad or not. The latest Fox Marvel superhero flick pulled in just over $26 million, falling short of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation which was in its second weekend. Pixar’s Inside Out and Universal’s Jurassic World finally dropped from the top 10 after eight and nine weeks at the box office, respectively. Meanwhile, the limited release film, The Gift (2015) averaged more than Fantastic Four and almost as much as MIssion: Impossible – Rogue Nation on a per theater basis and more than doubled its small $5 million budget. Shaun the Sheep Movie, which came out this weekend, didn’t even crack the top ten, bringing in just $4 million and averaging less per theater than Inside Out and just slightly more than Jurassic World. Check out this week’s top 10 box office films below and let us know if you were one of the few to go see Fantastic Four.
