It was already been reported two weeks ago that Hollywood was on pace to have its worst summer box office in eleven years. However, this past weekend has made that certainty all the more likely. Due to a perfect storm of factors, this weekend's domestic box office was one of the worst in over a decade, with “The Hitman's Bodyguard” managing to take the number one spot for the second week in a row.

One of the worst weekends in recent memory

This weekend's total gross haul at the box office between the 58 movies showing in theatres was only $66.98 million according to Box Office Mojo.

That number was an improvement, as many were forecasting before the final numbers that the total would not get past $65 million, which would have been the lowest cumulative total in over 15 years. However, the top twelve films this weekend only managed to take in a combined total of $49.72 million, which is the first time that has happened in over 15 years.

Hollywood's worst domestic box office had many causes

A minor cause was the impact of Hurricane Harvey, which has obviously caused theatres in south Texas to be closed for the weekend as the people in the area deal with the natural disaster.

Another factor was the much hyped mega fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather, which was shown in certain movie theaters along with being ordered via pay-per-view.

The fight brought just under $2.6 million at theaters according to Fathom, which placed it eighth at this weekend's box office.

Late August and early September is also normally when lulls take place, as the box office transitions from summer movies to films that are generally more serious award contenders.

There were also only 11 new movies this week and two of those were the mega fight and a 3D showing of “Terminator 2: Judgement Day.”

'The Hitman's Bodyguard' is once again number one

The Hitman's Bodyguard”, starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, once again took the top spot at the box office. The film took in just over $10 million, coming off an opening weekend haul of $21.3 million.

This makes it the twelfth film this year to go at least back-to-back weeks holding the top spot at the domestic box office, with the last being “Dunkirk” a few weeks ago.

Coming in second place was “Annabelle: Creation”, which made $7.35 million in its third weekend. In third place was the first new release of the weekend, the animated film “Leap”, which took in just over $5 million. The only other notable new release of the week was “Birth of the Dragon”, which came in ninth place with $2.5 million.
