Big Hero 6 Adds $2.24 million
Taken 3 was top of the box office, earning $0.4 million in its first weekend.That’s the second-highest opening ever for a film in January. The film’s opening is 18% lower than Taken 2‘s $49 million debut.
Selma was second with $11.2 million, an impressive jump as the film has moved into wider release. In general other sites have said this is a disappointing wide release. The film has a 98% approval on Rotten Tomatoes, and an A+ Cinemascore.
In geekier films, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies earned $9.4 million this past weekend, and brought its domestic total to $236.5 million. The film has slowed its earnings and has $22 million to go before it passes The Desolation of Smaug. If it doesn’t earn that, it’ll be the lowest earning film of the series.
And closer to comic books, Big Hero 6 continues to earn, bringing in an additional $2.2 million, and its domestic total to just under $214.5 million.
Big Hero 6 has also done well and when you add in the foreign earnings (47.6% of its earnings) the film has brought in $409 million worldwide.
