Theater Counts: Suicide Squad Remains Top Dog

August 18th, 2016

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad will lose 331 venues this weekend, but remain the film in widest release. The theater count hasn’t been announced yet for Kubo and the Two Strings, but Focus Features had it pegged around 3,100 this time last week, and it will clearly fall far short of the 3,924 claimed by Suicide Squad for the weekend. War Dogs will land in 3,258 locations and is the widest new release to have reported so far. Ben Hur will launch in 3,084, which is a weak number for a film that needs to make a lot of money.

Hell or High Water will expand to 472 locations this weekend after a strong debut in limited release last weekend.

Reporting for next weekend is fairly limited so far, but Sony has announced that Don’t Breathe will debut in approximately 2,900 venues.
