The House With a Clock In Its Walls to Win Weekend Box Office

Eli Roth's The House with a Clock In Its Walls is off to a solid start to securely top this weekend's domestic box office.

Projected to earn $7.8 million on its opening day and $24.6 million domestically over the course of this weekend, the film is well on its way to earning back its reported $40 million production budget.

Going into its second weekend, the Anna Kendrick starring A Simple Favor is looking to take the second spot with $10.5 million bringing its domestic box office total to $32.7 million. Less impressive in its second weekend is Shane Black's The Predator sliding into fourth place with an estimated $8 million. With an estimated production budget of $88 million, this puts the sequel to $34.2 million domestically and $69.9 million worldwide and unlikely to break even after taking its distribution and marketing expenses into account.

Nearly a month into its release, The Nun is on track to earn $100 million domestically this weekend on a reported production budget of $22 million. With a combined global box office of $238.4 million, the latest Conjuring spinoff prequel is another strong success for the franchise.
