*- Still playing in select areas.

Max Steel, I’m Not Ashamed, Keeping Up with the Joneses, and American Pastoral were the big losers in this month.

Inferno was a financial success despite being critically a failure.  Tom Cruise still brought in crowds to see Jack Reacher. Ouiji: Origins of Evil proved that even on a small budget, you can still make above-average horror films.

Emily Blunt and Ben Affleck continue to be box office draws with their latestest movies.  Someway, somehow Boo! A Madea’s Halloween did quite well. Proving that specific style of comedy has an audience out there.

Moonlight was the best movie of the month, but it was under a limited release and not many saw it.
