‘House With A Clock In Its Walls’ Looks to Top Soft Weekend

This weekend is looking to be one of the worst of the year with a top twelve that would be hard pressed to deliver a combined $80 million.

The weekend’s new crop of releases will be led by Universal’s The House with a Clock in Its Walls, which will easily take the weekend’s top spot.

Meanwhile, Michael Moore’s new documentary Fahrenheit 11/9 should manage a top ten finish while Amazon Studios’s Life Itself becomes the distributor’s widest debut yet, though a lack of awareness and troubling reviews won’t likely help the film’s debut.

Looking to top the weekend is Universal and Amblin Entertainment’s The House with a Clock In Its Walls.

Debuting in 3,592 locations, the adaptation of John Bellairs and Edward Gorey’s children’s story was directed by Eli Roth and studio expectations currently peg the film at a debut around $20 million with tracking coming in at $22 million.
