HOLLYWOOD—Well it was a holiday week, but that did not stop movie lovers from hitting the theaters. “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” remained at the top spot at the box-office taking in $75.8 million from Wednesday-Sunday. In less than 10 days, the final installment in the franchise has already crossed the $200 million mark at the domestic box-office. I’d argue it’s safe to say the movie will earn $300-$350 million.
There were other notable new releases during the week that also debuted to strong numbers. The animated feature “The Good Dinosaur” earned an impressive $55.6 million to land in second place. Sylvester Stallone reprised his role as Rocky in the flick “Creed” starring Michael B. Jordan as Apollo Creed’s son. “Creed” landed in third place earning $42.6 million. James Bond continued to be a force at theaters adding $18.2 million to land in fourth place. After nearly 4 weeks in theaters, Bond has earned over $176 million at the domestic box-office.
Rounding out the top five was “The Peanuts Movie” which earned $13.6 million, and has already crossed the $100 million mark at the domestic box-office. This weekend turns the box-office slightly creepy as a horror-themed Christmas flick “Krampus” hits theaters. Hmm, not the best idea if you’re asking me.
