Weekend Box Office: ‘Happy Death Day’ Takes the Top Spot with $26.5 Million

Made for less than $5 million and with a notably lean marketing campaign, Happy Death Day is now the number one movie in America. By the end of today, it will still be the top contender at the box office, bringing in an estimated $26.5 million over this weekend. Next weekend will bring a number of wild cards, including Geostorm, A Madea Halloween 2, The Snowman, and Only the Brave, but for right now, the Blumhouse model has once again proven to be an ironclad method for studio production that yields both good movies and profit.
