Box Office: “Freddy’s” Falls 86% from Last Friday, “Flower Moon” Crossing $50 Mil Tonight, Taylor Still Swift


Last night’s box office:

“Killers of the Flower Moon” will hit $50 million today. It’s up over $100 million worldwide. You haven’t seen this masterpiece already? What a ride you will have. Many awards coming…

“Five Nights at Freddy’s” fell 86% last night from last Friday. This was a Halloween movie, to be sure. Total will cross $100 million today. Made for five cents, another horror profit hound from Blumhouse. Next year: Six Nights at Freddy’s, and so on.

Taylor is still Swift: The Eras Tour movie is up around $160 million and slowing down ever so slightly. The Swifts know how to make money. Music Business Worldwide reports that when Taylor’s masters were sold the first time, from Big Machine Records to Scooter Braun, her father made around $15 million from the sale. Not a bad score for him.

Last: Meg Ryan directed a romcom starring herself and David Duchovny. So far no numbers reported. Has a 51% on Rotten Tomatoes from just 35 reviews. I have no clue about it. Maybe it will turn up in end of the year screenings.
