fb.indiewire.com – A whopping 10 new films entered the specialty marketplace in limited release this weekend, and that's not even counting the semi-wide release of Kevin Smith's "Tusk" (which notably despite very strong buzz out of Toronto, had a so-so debut).

Box Office Late Nights: ‘Maze Runner’ Off To Good Start With $1.1M, ‘Tombstones’ Takes In $480K

deadline.com – Fox's The Maze Runner grabbed $1.1M in late night showing from 2,200 locations starting at 10PM. The best comparison is probably the sci-fi actioner, Ender's Game which opened with $1.4 million in November 2013 and went onto have an opening weekend gross of $27M. So, perhaps Fox is more on the money with a lower estimate for this weekend.

Box Office Preview: ‘November Man’ Opens To $865K In First Day Of Long Labor Day Weekend

deadline.com – It'll likely be Guardians Of The Galaxy as No. 1 again this weekend, while Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles should continue to play hard throughout the long Labor Day weekend.
