Projections: 'Magnificent Seven,' 'Suicide Squad' Seek to Hold Off 'Blair Witch'

9 Jan, 2017 By: John Latchem

The steady stream of product from after Christmas into the New Year hasn't thus far proved a challenge to strong holdovers such as Sony Pictures' The Magnificent Seven and Warner's Suicide Squad.

The biggest titles from Jan. 3 looking to change this trend the week ending Jan. 8 are from Lionsgate: the horror sequel Blair Witch, which earned $20.78 million in U.S. theaters, and the tween book adaptation Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, which earned $20 million domestically.

On the weekly rental chart, Universal's Jason Bourne and The Secret Life of Pets come off their 28-day holdback at Redbox rental kiosks and should move into the top spots.
