Star Wars Crosses $700 Million

star-wars-force-awakens-official-posterStar Wars: The Force Awakens was the top of the box office for the third week in a row adding an estimated $88.3 million to its total. The film ends the year crossing the $700 million mark with $740.27 million to be the top grossing film domestically.

The film’s success made it the second largest January weekend of all time falling about $4.5 million short of the record back in 2009 when Avatar was in theaters. The Force Awakens will likely pass that film’s all time domestic record of $760.5 million this coming week. The film is also the fastest film to cross $700 million domestically, doing in 16 days what it took Avatar 72 to do. The Force Awakens currently is the sixth highest grossing film of all time, and it will likely move in to fourth in a day or two and in to third be the end of the week the latest.

For the rest of the weekend box office, Daddy’s Home was in second place earning $29 million, with The Hateful Eight coming in third as it increased its theater count. That film earned an estimated $16.2 million. Sisters came in fourth adding $12.58 million to its total after three weeks. Rounding out the top five, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip earned an estimated $11.8 million.

Star Wars Dominates the Box Office, Chipmunks Squeak With Dud

star-wars-force-awakens-official-posterIf you watched the new you might not know there were multiple movies opening this weekend. Star Wars: The Force Awakens dominated the box office shattering records, as was expected. The film earned an estimated $238 million domestically and $279 million internationally to give it a total of $517 million after less than a week.

I won’t rehash all of the records crushed by the film, you can read those here. The big questions now, 1) How quickly will the film reach $1 billion; 2) Will it top Avatar as the top grossing domestic film; 3) Will it top Avatar as the top grossing film of all time not adjusted for inflation?

There were other films that opened this weekend!

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip came in second place and earned an estimated $14.4 million. That’s far less than the previous film’s debut of $23.2 million and continues a decline for the film series.

Sisters opened in third and brought in $13.4 million, about the same as This is 40 which also opened against a big film and both had similar reviews.

Two Bollywood films opened too. Diwale came in ninth earning $1.875 million and Bajirao Mastani came in tenth earning $1.66 million.

For films already playing, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 was fourth with an estimated $5.7 million, and Creed was fifth adding $5.1 million to its total.

Mockingjay Part 2 Remains Number 1, In the Heart of the Sea S(t)inks

mockingjaypostersmallFour weeks in the box office, and for weeks number one at the box office. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 remained in first place adding an estimated $11.3 million to its domestic total. The film has earned $244.49 million domestically and $564.59 million globally in its run so far. It will likely be bumped from first place this coming week as Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuts in theaters.

New film In the Heart of the Sea hit a stormy patch as the film earned an estimated $11 million, a disappointment. The film is rumored to have a budget around $100 million and needed to open around $30 million to be considered healthy.

The Big Short also debuted earning an estimated $720,000. The film opened in only 8 theaters which gives it a very health $90,000 per theater average.

For the rest of the top five for the weekend. The Good Dinosaur was in third with $10.5 million earning, Creed was fourth adding $10.12 million, and Krampus was fifth with $8.01 million.

mockingjaypostersmallThe Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 topped the box office with an estimated $101 million. That’s the fifth movie to open above $100 million this year. The film opened $20 million below the first part though. Of course people are calling the film a flop due to that lower opening, even though it was still above $100 million. There’s much debate as to the reason for the “lowish” opening.

Worldwide the film earned $247 million, which is $27.8 million behind Part 1’s $273.8 million. It is a bit apples and oranges comparison due to the film opening in different territories.
