Thursday Night Previews: Don’t Breathe Knocks Out the Competition with $1.88 million

August 26th, 2016

Don’t Breathe

Don’t Breathe earned $1.8 million during its midnight previews, which is coincidentally almost exactly the same amount as Lights Out opened with earlier this summer. Don’t Breathe does have better reviews than Lights Out earned, plus it has less competition. On the other hand, this weekend is a weaker weekend at the box office. It does look like it will beat expectations and an opening of more than $20 million is likely.

Mechanic: Resurrection only managed $390,000. Combine that weak start with its mixed reviews and it will very likely miss the top five during its opening before disappearing from theaters within a few weeks.
