Good for The Scorch Trials. The Maze Runner sequel edged out Black Mass at the weekend box office with $30.3 million. Warner Bros.’ crime drama took second place with $23.3 million.
The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials was produced with a $61 million budget, so with this lower opening weekend (compared to the $32.5 million that The Maze Runner claimed on this same weekend in 2014), it may have a tougher time earning a profit than the first movie.
Dystopic young-adult thriller The Maze Runner dashes to top of U.S. box-office this weekend for a $32.5 million gross, solidly meeting expectations.
Following a solid start at the box office, 20th Century Fox has set a date for the sequel, The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials.
