BOX OFFICE: “Nightcrawler” and “Ouija” Take Halloween Top Spots

The Halloween weekend box may still be too close to call, but domestic estimates have the debut of “Nightcrawler” edging out “Ouija’s” second week by a mere $9000 dollars.

“Nightcrawler,” the twisted thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal, earned a reported $10,909,000 versus the board game/spirit board spinoff “Ouija’s” $10.9 million. Next week, the two smaller budget films will go up against two potential blockbusters, when Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” and Disney’s “Big Hero 6” open.

The Daniel Radcliffe-starring horror-fantasy “Horns” underwhelmed, earning $104,357 in the 103 theatres it opened in, according to The Hollywood Reporter. But the film, based on a novel by Joe Hill about a small town pariah who grows a pair of horns, was also distributed on VOD earlier this month, where it has earned $1 million.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” topped “Maleficent” this weekend to take the second highest worldwide gross of 2014. “Guardians” currently sits at a global haul $765.1 million, under Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” which has earned $1.087 billion. The Bay-produced “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” opened in first place in China this weekend to an impressive $34.7 million, and could pass $500 million worldwide when it opens in Japan next year, according to Box Office Mojo. It’s currently earned $434.5 million worldwide.
