miss-peregrines-home-movie-bannerWEEKEND RECAP:

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Deepwater Horizon debuted in the #1 and #2 spots (respectively) over the weekend. The weekend’s third new release, Masterminds, didn’t have as good of a debut, and wasn’t able to crack the Top 5. Disney’s Queen of Katwe went from limited release to wide, however, it didn’t quite meet expectations.
