Weekend Box Office: ‘American Sniper’ Goes Crazy At The Box Office

In what is completely unprecedented, American Sniper smashed and decimated the competition this week. 90.2 million for a film in January is just batshit crazy. Not only is it almost 50M higher than the previous January record holder Ride Along at 41.5M, but it would also be smashing the record if it opened in February, September, October, or December. Surprisingly, it’s only the second biggest opening of Bradley Cooper’s career. It’s by far the biggest opening of Clint Eastwood’s career. IT kind of takes the steam out of The Wedding Ringer and Paddington, both of which had good openings. Blackhat though… not so much.
