Hey, movie lovers! Hope you had a great weekend! Here are your weekend box office results!

"Sully" had another banner weekend at the box office, pulling in $22 million in its second weekend out to claim the number one spot yet again. Its domestic total gross sits at a whopping $70.5 million. In second place was the long-oft sequel to "The Blair Witch Project" called "Blair Witch," which disappointed by pulling in a mere $9,650,000 when its projections were much higher. We can't say we blame people, after all, it has been 17 years since the original. Despite its mildly disappointing opening, it will still make its budget back easily. In third place was another newcomer in "Bridget Jones's Baby," which also dipped below its box office predictions by making $8,240,715. In fourth place  was the third newcomer of the weekend, the Oliver Stone-directed biopic of Edward Snowden, "Snowden," which came close to beating "Bridget Jones's Baby" by making $8,023,329. Finally, horror favorite  "Don't Breathe" rounded out the top 5 by making $5,600,000. Its domestic total gross sits pretty at $75,328,781.

Next week sees the release of the remake of "The Magnificent Seven," so it'll be interesting to see how it shakes up the box offices!
