Box Office, Sully Still on Top

Weekend Recap:

This past weekend saw three new releases, yet none of them were able to budge Sully from it’s #1 position. The Clint Eastwood directed movie, starring Tom Hanks, easily held onto the top spot for a second weekend with another $21. 65 million.

Of the three new movies, Blair Witch, the sequel to 1999’s The Blair Witch Project, came in 2nd with $9.57 million. That disappointing debut was about half of what the estimates predicted going into the weekend. Reviews have not been good, so the movie will probably quickly drop down the list.

Speaking of disappointing debuts, Bridget Jones’s Baby delivered the weekend’s second stinker sequel, with $8.57 million. Oliver Stone’s Snowden, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the controversial NSA whistle-blower, took in $8 million in it’s opening weekend, and Don’t Breathe rounded out the Top 5.

The Top 10 for the weekend of September 16 – 18, 2016:

(Movie – Studio Weekend Gross)

  1. Sully – WB $21,653,017
  2. Blair Witch – LGF $9,576,057

Super Mario Bros. Corn Maze at New York Farm

6a50ff_ae40a9de48a44c848e4cbbaa88a1978a-mv2

Every year since 2005, Stoughton Farm, in Newark Valley, NY, has created a uniquely themed corn maze. This year, the theme is Super Mario Bros., the popular Nintendo video game.

The maze covers nearly eight acres, and took several weeks, plus a lot of math to build. The Stoughton family and their maze were recently featured in an ABC News article, where Tim Stoughton said, “We lay it out into grids and then go in and take the corn out where the pathways should be,” said Stoughton. “We do it when you can still see over the corn, before it gets too tall.”6a50ff_27d1f714ff1c419faeb2c713423b9543

Stoughton Farm is a greenhouse, roadside farm market, and “MAiZE” site located in Newark Valley, New York, which is near Ithaca. The Super Mario Bros., Maze opens on Saturday, September 17. Additional attractions include a 9ft tube slide, a spider web for the youngsters, pumpkin checkers, duck races, and dozens of photo ops. On the weekends, the farm also has a corn cannon, pumpkin blaster, cow train rides, and hayrides.

 

There’s also a food truck with Homemade French Fries!
