Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials debuted in first this weekend with $30.32 million. However, the young adult sequel from Fox debuted significantly below expectations and an underwhelming 7 percent below the $32.51 million debut of last year's The Maze Runner. With that said, without adjusting for ticket price inflation The Scorch Trials delivered the eighth largest September debut of all-time (just ahead of 2009's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs). Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials outpaced Black Mass by a comfortable $7.68 million in the battle for first place this weekend.

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials debuted in first this weekend with an estimated $30.3 million. However, the young adult sequel from Fox debuted significantly below expectations and an underwhelming 7 percent below the $32.51 million debut of last year's The Maze Runner. With that said, The Scorch Trials is currently tied with 2009's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs for the eighth largest September debut of all-time (without adjusting for ticket price inflation). Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials outpaced Black Mass by an estimated $6.94 million this weekend in the battle for first place.

Fox reports that Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials bowed to an estimated $11.0 million on Friday, including Thursday's $1.7 million early show gross. While not a bad number by any means, that does fall over 2 percent short of the original's $11.2 million opening day despite having a $600,000 comparable advantage in Thursday night earnings. The first film was very well received by fans and posted unusually strong legs for the young adult genre as it went on to earn over $100 million domestically. Pre-release traditional tracking had been consistently in line with that of The Divergent Series: Insurgent (whose opening day was $21.2 million), suggesting a much higher opening weekend was in store for Scorch Trials.

Sony's The Perfect Guy grossed $1.05 million on Thursday to lead the daily box office for a fourth consecutive day. The low-budget thriller from Screen Gems starring Sanaa Lathan, Michael Ealy and Morris Chestnut was down 10 percent from Wednesday. It should be noted that daily percentage declines were sharp in general on Thursday, due in part to Fox's Maze Runner: The Scorch Trails, Warner's Black Mass and Universal's Everest all entering the marketplace on Thursday evening. The Perfect Guy was the week's top film with a stronger than expected seven-day start of $31.71 million. That places the film a healthy 6 percent ahead of the $29.91 million seven-day start of last year's No Good Deed.
