American Sniper Stays on Top. Guardians Drops to 2nd. Big Hero 6 Hangs on.
American Sniper stayed on top of the box office this past weekend. The film earned an estimated $65.4 million in its fifth week. If the film keeps this up, there’s a good chance it’ll be the top domestic grossing film released in 2014.
With just a drop of 28% from the previous week American Sniper is the best second weekend hold ever for a movie that opened above $80 million.
Guardians of the Galaxy ended 2014 at the top of the domestic earnings for films released in 2014, but since The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 has moved to the top spot, earning $334.3 million compared to Guardians‘ $331.2 million.
Big Hero 6 earned an estimated $676,000 bringing its domestic total to $217.4 million.
It’s three weeks until the first comic book adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service opens in theaters.
