Theater Counts: Bourne to Open in Hefty 4,026 Theaters

July 28th, 2016

Jason Bourne

This is shaping up to be an interesting weekend at the box office, with Nerve already doing good business after a Wednesday opening, and two films that will, in theory at least, appeal to quite different demographics set to top the charts. Jason Bourne is the hot favorite for the win, and will bow in a very robust 4,026 theaters—the first non-family film to open in more than 4,000 theaters since Independence Day: Resurgence, and only the fifth this year. Bad Moms will be in second place for the weekend, almost certainly, but has a shot at doing very good business from 3,215 venues, so long as people pick up on the good reviews.

Both films will be anxious to bank as much money as possible before Suicide Squad arrives next week. It will open in 4,150 theaters or so, according to Warner Bros., and is tracking strongly.
