Liam Neeson Thriller, ‘Honest Thief’ tops U.S. Box Office again



Liam Neeson’s thriller “Honest Thief” repeated as the winner of a subdued domestic box office with $2.4 million at 2,502 locations.

The Open Road release declined 44% from its opening frame and has taken in $7.5 million in its first 10 days in North America.

The distributor added screens in New York state following New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s decision to give movie theaters outside of New York City permission to reopen at reduced capacity which started on Oct. 23.

The “Honest Thief” number is one of the lowest-winning weekend totals in theaters during the past two months.

The New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco markets remained closed due to the pandemic along with the Regal Cinemas chain, which closed its 536 U.S. locations on Oct. 8.

Other U.S. theaters are operating with reduced hours and at reduced capacity with social distancing restrictions.
