It only took four weeks before the latest Star Wars movie to fall from the top spot. The sequel to the surprise hit is the movie that is able to take it down, along with a Golden Globe winning movie. Both of these movies were able to take down the movie and force Star Wars into the number three spot at the box office.
Ride Along 2 is the top movie this weekend with its estimated $34 million. The first movie was a surprise hit at the box office so it was no surprise that a sequel would be made. The movie didn’t make as big of an opening as the first movie did, which took in $41 million, but it still was able to beat out Star Wars and a Golden Globe winning movie.
The Reverent also is able to beat out Star Wars with its estimated $29.5 million weekend. The movie is enjoying an increase at the box office since it did so well at the Golden Globes which was last weekend. The movie should continue to do well tonight at The Critic’s Choice Awards and the Oscars which are next month.
Star Wars The Force Awakens falls from the top spot and brings in an estimated $25.1 million. The movie puts the box office total to $851 million and that is just domestically. The movie continues to hit double digits and is likely to hit $1 billion domestically by the end of its run and an overall $2 billion.
Rounding out the top five is the premiere of the true story titled 13 Hours: The Secret Soldier of Benghazi with an estimated $16 million. Daddy’s Home falls just short of double digits with an estimated $9.3 million.
For the rest of the box office, you can go here.
