Jigsaw: Lionsgate Horror Flick Dominates Box-Office

In the second slowest weekend this year, horror titles dominated the pre-Halloween box with Lionsgate’s opening of Jigsaw leading the way at a respectable $16.3 million at 2,941 locations.

“Jigsaw” is the eighth title in the “Saw” franchise, which centers on the deranged killer played by Tobin Bell.

Audiences gave the movie a B Cinemascore, and the film made about $4 million less than projected in its launch weekend.

The movie, which has a budget around $10 million, is set a decade after the death of Jigsaw as police investigate a series of gruesome murders that fit the Jigsaw style.

The second weekend of “Boo 2! A Madea Halloween,” also from Lionsgate, turned in a solid performance with $10 million at 2,388 sites, but no other title cleared the $6 million mark.
