There were two new movies coming out this weekend that tried to challenge Spectre and The Peanuts Movie for the top of the box office. Neither movie was able to do that or get into double digits at the box office.
Spectre once again repeats at the top of the box office bringing in an estimated $35 million over the weekend. While the movie has high hopes for having a big box office total, the 50% decrease from week to week is not going to help matters. Especially since the competition that it’s going to have in the coming weeks.
The Peanuts Movie is once again in the shadows of Spectre bringing in an estimated $24.2 million over the weekend. The movie is now right on the cusp of the $100 million mark and should pass over it by the end of the week, also beating out the $99 million budget.
The two new movies coming out were Love the Coopers with an estimated $8.4 million. The Christmas movie was hoping to bring in money for the holiday but doesn’t look like it will. The other new movie to come out is The 33 with an estimated $5.8 million. The Martian remain in the top five with an estimated $6.7 million. For the rest of the box office, you can go here.
The final movie of The Hunger Games saga, Mockingjay pt 2, is set to come out this week and will likely dominate the box office until the next Star Wars movie comes out in December. It is predicted to premiere over $100 million at the box office with many of the fans going multiple times to see the movie.
