Goosebumps And Crimson Peak Blaze Uncertain Box Office Trails On Thursday Night
Right behind Crimson Peak last night was Goosebumps, which grossed $600 thousand. Comparisons are hard to come by for this one, since most family movies in the fall don't report Thursday night grosses (Hotel Transylvania 2 eschewed Thursday night showings altogether three weeks ago), though it does seem likely that the feature is in line for a solid opening weekend and may even give The Martian a run for first place at the box office.
Finally, Bridge of Spies brought in $500 thousand, which, as Deadline points out, is only 16% behind the Thursday night grosses for the October 2013 Tom Hanks led drama Captain Phillips. If Bridge of Spies had an opening weekend only 16% behind the one Captain Phillips had, it would make $21.7 million for the weekend. That may be a tad too high of expectations to put on the film, but it does look like there's a good chance the newest film from Steven Spielberg could squeak past the $20 million mark this weekend.
