Weekend Box Office: ‘Star Wars’ Keeps Smashing Records

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now 6th All Time Worldwide, and 2nd Domestically. It is just 20M short of Avatar. It will probably pass it on Tuesday, as kids start going back to school tomorrow, so the astronomical weekday grosses are going to stop. It should still pull in around 10M a day, but it’s just slow enough to make it wait till Tuesday to pass Avatar for the #1 film All-Time.

Aside from Star Wars, some pretty great things happened with holdovers. The Good Dinosaur, Brooklyn, and Spotlight all rose, without adding any screens. Sisters dipped 11%, Alvin and the Chipmunks dipped 10%. More troubling was with all the awesomeness going around, Joy still managed to drop 38%, somehow even more than Point Break, which dropped 30%.

The Revenant managed a 112,500 per screen average and Anomalisa managed 35,000. Creed broke 100M. Daddy’s Home will definitely break 100M, possibly before Friday of next week.
