Jigsaw Lands In The Top Spot

Its opponents might have had star power or heartstring-plucking stories of veterans, but with Halloween on the way, Jigsaw beat the rest at the Stateside box office game. The latest – if belated – sequel for the Saw series earned $16.2 million, according to studio estimates.

The horror, which sees the legacy of Jigsaw come back to haunt some new victims, was made for a budget of $10 million (not counting marketing etc.), but despite the seven-year gap between the last movie and this one, it appears the appetite for the torturous games of the killer is still eager. Last week's champion, Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween slipped to second on $10 million. And Geostorm was shoved to third, making $5.6 million.

In fourth place, fellow horror (this one with more intentional comedy) Happy Death Day took in $5 million, ahead of Blade Runner 2049 on $3.9 million, rounding out the top five.

You have to scan down the charts to sixth to find Thank You For Your Service, which charts the struggles of those returning from war. It earned $3.7 million, ahead of firefighter drama Only The Brave, which has also sought to chronicle heroism. The movie made $3.4 million in seventh. The Foreigner took home $3.2 million in eighth, while the third new arrival of the week, Suburbicon, could only manage $2.8 million for a ninth place launch. Hardly a great result for a movie directed by George Clooney and starring Matt Damon. Finally, box office sensation It finally seemed to be losing some of its power in the face of fresh terror challengers, falling from seventh to 10th for $2.4 million. Still, the scary clown has earned more than $323 million in the States alone.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See SHAZAM! on April 1st at 7:00 PM in Phoenix.

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou). Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).
