Sully Easily Dominates Second Weekend with $22 Million

The Clint Eastwood directed and Tom Hanks starring, based-on-a-true-story flick, Sully, easily remained on top of the box office this weekend with $22 million.

Yes, you heard right, the Blair Witch failed to scare up a sizable box office with it's $9.7 million debut, settling for second place instead.  This is behind the Blair Witch 2's $13.2 million from 2000 and way behind the $29.2 million wide release opener for the original Blair Witch Project back in 1999.  All is not lost, as this will still be a profitable movie since it's budget is reported to be around $5 million.

The other newcomers didn't do so well either, as Bridget Jones's Baby ($8.2 million) and Snowden ($8 million) delivered below expectations.
