Box Office Roundup
It’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part Two at the number one spot again. The film grossed $52 million in its second week of release, which brings its domestic total to $198.55 million. It’s still running behind Mockingay – Part One’s ten-day domestic total of $225.68 million, and it most likely won’t catch up.
Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur opened to $39.16 million. It’s Pixar’s lowest opening weekend since A Bug’s Life’s $33.26 million opening back in 1998. However, it also became the fourth biggest Thanksgiving opening, so that’s something to be thankful for. The film’s domestic total is at $55.46 million.
Also opening this weekend, Creed took in $29.63 million. The film has grossed $42.12 million domestically since its release five days ago, and it should continue to hold strong thanks to strong critical reception, lack of big competition, and the undying love of all things Rocky most people have.
Spectre fell to fourth this weekend, grossing $12.89 million. There’s nothing more to say other than what another solid weekend for the latest Bond film. The film has grossed $176.13 million domestically.
Rounding out the top five is The Peanuts Movie with $9.75 million. The film managed to hold well for its fourth week of release and against another big animated film as well. The film’s domestic total is at $116.80 million.
Victor Frankenstein was dead on arrival at the box office, as it came in at twelfth place with $2.47 million. It’s the second film by Max Landis to recently bomb at the box office, but it’s not really his fault. The Frankenstein I.P. should just be laid to rest for a while.
The Hunger Games continues being a juggernaut overseas, bringing in $62 million over the weekend to a worldwide total of $442.25 million.
The Martian is back in Box Office Roundup, because it just loves to be talked about. The Ridley Scott sci-fi film opened in China to the huge amount of $50.1 million. The film’s worldwide total is now at $545.40 million.
For a Pixar film, The Good Dinosaur didn’t do great overseas, bringing in $28.7 million from 39 different territories. Worldwide, the film has grossed $84.15 million.
