MGM & Sony’s “The Magnificent Seven” was just that at the box-office this weekend with the film coming in first place and taking in an estimated $35 million haul. Antoine Fuqua helmed the $90 million budget film which received an A- CinemaScore from audiences, a better reaction than critics who’ve been decidedly mixed.
Warners’ $70 million budget animated feature “Storks” came in second place with $21.8 million and also received an A- CinemaScore from audiences. Slipping to third was “Sully” which added a further $13.8 million in its third weekend to push its domestic total to $92.4 million.
“Bridget Jones’s Baby” came in fourth with $4.5 million and Oliver Stone’s “Snowden” was fifth with $4.1 million. In limited release, Disney’s “Queen of Katwe” received a stellar A+ CinemaScore, but made just $305,000 from 52 screens. The film is expected to expand domestically next weekend.
