Labor Day weekend box office the lowest in two decades

Let’s face it, this summer’s US box office has been a complete bust, with figures at the lowest for a decade, and it’s now turned out to be the worst Labor Day weekend in over two decades.

Revenue for the holiday weekend is expected to land at around $100 million, which is down 22 percent from last year – and there have been no big releases either.

As for the current chart, there are no new entries in the top 10, and so it hasn’t dramatically changed from last week really, according to Box Office Mojo.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard is still holding tough onto the top spot in its third week taking $10,250,000 over the weekend.

The comedy, which stars Ryan Reynolds as a celebrity bodyguard tasked with protecting a legendary hitman played by Samuel L Jackson, has now made $54,944,214 so far.

Horror sequel Annabelle: Creation is still sitting at number two, with a weekend revenue of $7,300,000 and almost $89 million gross total against a $15 million budget – it seems people still like a fright even when it’s not Halloween.

The third spot is held by Wind River which took $5,863,074 this weekend and Leap!, which stars Elle Fanning as an aspiring ballerina, is at number four after pulling in $4,886,923.

Logan Lucky, starring Channing Tatum and Adam Driver attempting a heist at NASCAR remains at number five, but still struggling to even hit its $29 million budget.
