Inferno, the third film of The Da Vinci Code franchise, turned out to be a huge disappointment for Sony Pictures over its opening weekend. The film did much better overseas than it did domestically where it rang up just $15 million during its first three days. $15 million is way below prerelease estimates and far below both The Da Vinci Code‘s $77 million opening weekend and Angels & Demons‘ $46 million.
Because Inferno dramatically underperformed, Boo! A Madea Halloween was able to snag the top spot on the box office top 10 list for the second weekend in a row. However, Boo! won’t be able to make it a three-peat next weekend as Trolls, Doctor Strange, and Hacksaw Ridge all debut domestically in theaters.
