At a glance

  • The latest release of “The Chosen” marks the first time one of its seasons has premiered in theaters, and judging by its performance, it won’t be the last.
  • Box Office Mojo reports the two episodes made $3,484,674 on opening day, well on the way to hitting an estimated $10 million during opening weekend, according to Deadline. Friday ticket sales came in just behind the comedy horror thriller “The Menu” and outpaced sales for Warner Brothers’ film “Black Adam,” Universal Pictures’ “Ticket to Paradise,” and the just released “She Said,” a film about the #MeToo movement.
