Labor Day moviegoers are certainly in the mood for a good scare. The visually resourceful, highly original Don’t Breathe won the box office for the second weekend in a row, taking in $15.7 million for a total gross of $54.8 million. (“There isn’t a single false scare,” our critic David Edelstein wrote in his review. “There isn’t, come to think of it, a scare that doesn’t set up another scare down the road in the manner of a good gag writer.”) DC Comics’ Suicide Squad secured the second-place weekend position with its anti-hero shenanigans, taking in $10 million, while the family-friendly Pete’s Dragon and Kubo and the Two Strings tied for third place with an equal $6.4 million cume. Meanwhile, the knitwear-heavy Light Between Oceans made a sixth-place debut with $4.9 million, while the R-rated comedy Bad Moms crossed a momentous $100 million milestone in the U.S. Yas, queens!
