Fox’s The Maze Runner ended up on the high end of this morning’s estimate and after its core audience came out on Saturday night to give the sci-fi actioner around a 20% boost, it will likely run in with $32.5M to $33M+. Grosses from 48 more international markets will be reported tomorrow; Maze Runner opened last weekend overseas to very strong numbers. The adaptation of the YA novel by James Dashner tracked better with males than Divergent did, but it still garnered interest from young females. Probably because of Dylan O’Brien (of MTV’s Teen Wolf).
