Despite a mediocre opening weekend, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children placed first at the box office, earning $28.5 million.
As noted by Variety, Tim Burton’s new fantasy film is off to a slow start domestically, but is showing promise in international markets, having currently made $36.5 million oversees.
The film still has a ways to go if it’s to reach profitability for 20th Century Fox, thanks to a production budget of $110 million.
As of right now, the studio remains unsure as to whether or not Miss Peregrine’s will get a sequel. “It’s a promising start, but it’s too early to tell,” Fox domestic distribution chief Chris Aronson said, adding, “There are multiple books and they are best-sellers, so the door is open.”
