Box Office: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Dominates With $40 Million

14 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Spy comedy “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is heading for a solid $40 million opening weekend at 4,003 North American sites, estimates showed Saturday.

The third weekend of horror blockbuster “It” continues to scare up impressive business with a projected $30 million at 4,007 locations, followed by the launch of Warner Bros.’ animated comedy “The Lego Ninjago Movie” with about $21 million at 4,047 locations — well under recent forecasts. Still, with three films over $20 million, the overall box office represents a continued rebound for the movie business following a dismal late summer.

Independent horror movie “Friend Request” is showing little traction in its launch weekend with an estimated $2.2 million at 2,550 venues. Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Stronger,” a biopic on Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, is opening with a moderate $1.6 million at 574 sites for Roadside Attractions.

Fox’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is performing in line with expectations, two years after “Kingsman: The Secret Service.” The sequel brings back original stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth »

Ok, Ok, Ok, you don’t use a laugh track, “Will & Grace.” The cast and creators of the revived NBC sitcom participated in a Tribeca TV Festival panel discussion early Saturday evening, when writer/executive producer Max Mutchnick and the gang reacted pretty strongly to the idea that they use a laugh track.
