'A Walk In the Woods' Surprises with $1.17 Million First Place Opening DaySeptember 03, 2015 08:15 AM

by BoxOffice Staff

Broad Green Pictures' A Walk In the Woods opened above expectations with $1.17 million in first place on Wednesday, slightly ahead of The Debt's $970,532 opening Wednesday before Labor Day four years ago. Despite middling reviews, the R-rated comedy looks to be attracting some of its target adult audience heading into Labor Day weekend. If it holds up similar to The Debt over the next four days, it could even lead the holiday box office weekend.

Universal reports Straight Outta Compton added $1.08 million on Wednesday, down 48.5 percent from the same day last week. That gives the biopic a domestic total of $137.9 million through 20 days of release.

In third place, War Room tacked on another $0.86 million, giving the faith-based pic a six-day total of $14.4 million. That puts it 79 percent ahead of the pace 2008's Fireproof and 34 percent ahead of 2011's Courageous.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation eased 37 percent from last Wednesday to $0.69 million yesterday. The Tom Cruise franchise sequel has amassed an excellent $172.55 million domestically to date.

No Escape was off 49 percent from its first day last Wednesday to $0.603 million yesterday. With $12.45 million in the bank through eight days of play, it's pacing 5.5 percent behind The November Man.

Meanwhile, We Are Your Friends tallied $0.157 million yesterday, giving it a weak six-day haul of $2.37 million. Unfortunately, the Zac Efron pic is trailing That Awkward Moment by 78 percent.
