The film saw a 44% decrease from its opening weekend box office, and has brought in a total of $7.5 million in its first 10 days in North America so far. More screens were added to the box office amid the decision to give movie theaters outside of New York City permission to reopen at reduced capacity starting on October 23.

“Our belief was that releasing a crowd-pleaser of a film, like Honest Thief, at this point in time, would generate the positive word-of-mouth necessary to successfully propel the film for many weeks. Back to back weeks at number 1, confirms that belief,” said Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road.

The box office number also reflects one of the lowest-winning weekend totals in theaters during the past two months. Comscore reports that only 49% of movie theater locations are open, with U.S. theaters operating with reduced hours and at reduced capacity with social distancing restrictions.

One theater chain is now doing this to combat the decline in moviegoers amid the pandemic.

The movie’s brought in $4.2 million when including Canadian box office grosses.

“Moviegoers, particularly couples, came back to theatres to enjoy Honest Thief in a theatrical environment and were rewarded with a movie rated 88 percent on the audience score from Rotten Tomatoes,” said Tom Ortenberg of Open Road Films.

THR notes that the movie played “particularly well” in Miami, Chicago, San Diego and Atlanta.

AMC just announced something surprising amid the pandemic.

Liam Neeson Auditioned For This Surprising Role in 'The Princess Bride'

Liam Neeson is opening up about his failed audition for the 1987 movie, The Princess Bride.

During his recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week, the 68-year-old actor revealed he had gone out for the role of Fezzik, which was ultimately played by Andre the Giant.

“I was quite nervous because I knew this was a big film and stuff. I had met the casting directors in LA,” Liam explained about the audition. “So I go into the office in London, and Rob Reiner looked at me and said ‘He’s not a giant. What height are you?’ I said ‘Six foot four.’ He said, ‘That’s tall, he’s not a giant.’”

Liam added that “there was no ‘hello, thank you.’ So I thought, the next time I see Rob Reiner, I’m going to tell him he was very rude.”

Just last month, the cast of the original movie reunited for a special reason. See what the occasion was here!

Liam Neeson Reacts to Son Micheál Taking His Late Mom Natasha Richardson's Last Name

In 2018, Liam Neeson‘s son Micheál Richardson decided to change his last name to his late mom’s last name.

Micheál, now 25, was only 13 years old when Natasha Richardson tragically died after a ski accident at the age of 45.

“I think he did the right thing. I think it was a lovely homage, a nice gesture and he’s, you know, he’s not saddled with my last name which, I have a certain celebrity status I guess,” Liam explained on Andy Cohen‘s SiriusXM show. “I’d hate for him to be constantly asked, ‘Oh are you Liam Neeson‘s son.’ So, it was a lovely gesture. Natasha’s family, mother and sisters were very touched by it, as indeed I was too.”

The pair star in the film Made in Italy together.

Liam Neeson's Mom Dies at 94, One Day Before His Birthday

Liam Neeson‘s mom Kitty has sadly died at the age of 94.

People reports that Katherine “Kitty” Neeson died on Saturday (June 6) in north Ireland, just one day before Liam‘s 68th birthday.

All Saints Church in Ballymena noted Kitty‘s death during a livestreamed church service that day. Parish Priest Monsignor Paddy Delargy said, “Let us pray for the faithful departed. We pray for those that died recently… and Kitty Neeson. Her funeral arrangements will be later.”

Liam returned home to live with his mom after leaving Queen’s University Belfast in 1971. He worked several jobs in his hometown before becoming an actor, but he later received an honorary doctorate from the school in May 2009. He said he was happy to “finally” tell his mom that he had graduated from the university.

Two months before he received the honorary degree, Liam‘s wife Natasha Richardson tragically died at the age of 45 during a skiing accident.

We’re sending our thoughts and condolences to the Neeson family during this difficult time.

During his appearance, Liam revealed that he enlisted his longtime stunt double Mark Vanselow to shoot a scene showing his bare butt in 2014′s Seth MacFarlane-directed A Million Ways to Die in the West alongside Charlize Theron.

“I hate my Irish butt, okay?” he joked.

In the scene, Liam‘s character falls to the ground with his pants down, exposing his butt, allowing Charlize‘s character to put a flower between his butt cheeks.

“I said to Mark: ‘Mark, this is a sign of our friendship — would you ever do this scene where Charlize Theron puts a daisy in your butt?’ And he said, ‘Sure,’ I gave him a big hug afterwards and said, ‘There’s no f—king way that anybody’s going to see my Irish butt.’”
