THE WEEKEND BOX OFFICE was the lowest since Oct. 30-Nov. 1, 1998.  That's right; lower than after 9/11.  Pixar's Onward repeated atop the chart with 10.5MM on a 73 percent drop from last weekend.  I Still Believe placed with 9.5MM against a 14MM budget.  Bloodshot showed with 9.3MM (and 10.5 total with Thursday sneaks) against a 45MM budget.  The Invisible Man took the fourth slot with 6MM on a 60 percent drop that looks to be the smallest drop on the chart.  The Hunt rounded out the Top Five with 5.3MM (5.8MM with sneaks) against a 14MM budget (and likely significant marketing cost, given that the movie was already canceled once).
