After four adult-skewing frames in a row, teen audiences will regain control of the box office with Ouija this weekend. The PG-13 horror movie starring Hasbro’s venerable “board game,” earned $8.3 million from 2,858 locations on Friday despite receiving some of the worst reviews of the year. Ouija is not going to break out like R-rated Annabelle did a few weeks back, but the Universal release should have no trouble summoning over $20 million on its first weekend in theatres. John Wick took second place yesterday, earning an estimated $5.45 million from 2,589 locations. The R-rated drama marks the return of Keanu Reeves to the action genre after a less than stellar run in 47 Ronin last year. Originally expected to bring in under $12 million, good reviews and strong word of mouth should get John Wick closer to $15 million through Sunday.
