Box-Office: 'The Accountant' debut at #1 with $25 Million, 'The Birth of a Nation' continues to plunge.

I liked "The Accountant" when I saw it 3 weeks ago. It's thrilling, mindless fun. I felt the same way watching it as I did watching Keanu Reeves kick ass in "John Wick" or Liam Neeson take names in "Taken." Mind you, "The Accountant" is not a stone-cold classic like the aforementioned Neeson film, but it gets the job done. You can read what I had to say about it HERE.

Meanwhile, Nate Parker's "The Birth of a Nation" is dying a slow death. After its below-expectations $7M debut last week, it has plunged even further down with just a $2.6M weekend intake. You don't hear me complaining, I thought the film was average at best when I first saw it at Sundance.
