Behind the US/Worldwide Box Office – 8.26.2018

  OPENINGS:  It’s very possible that the news is going to get even worse for THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS (H Brothers/Black Bear/STX), which is grimly insisting on a studio estimate of the best Sunday hold in the weekend&#...

Behind the US/Worldwide Weekend Box Office – 8.19.2018
