Analyst’s Commentary

Last week’s ugly duckling of a box office tally turns into to a beautiful swan this weekend, at least in comparison with last year

The Maze Runner leads the pack this weekend and may well put the entire total gross opened this equivalent weekend last year to shame with the first strong opening of the fall season.

A Walk Among the Tombstones grisly, disturbing, male oriented as it may well be will certainly help bolster the numbers with an unspectacular but not awful mid-teens opening.

This Is Where I Leave You which could have benefited by better reviews will attract a more female centric audience, perhaps those women who shuttle their spouses or partners off to Tombstones while their teenage brood goes to see Maze Runner.

All in all a very solid increase in gross over last year, sadly much needed right now.
