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

Posted on the 18 January 2015 by Sirmac2 @macthemovieguy

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.

1) American Sniper- 90.2M Weekend, 93.6M Total
2) The Wedding Ringer- 21.0M Weekend, 21.0M Total
3) Paddington- 19.2M Weekend, 19.2M Total
4) Taken 3- 14.0M Weekend, 62.8M Total
5) Selma- 8.3M Weekend, 25.9M Total
6) The Imitation Game- 7.1M Weekend, 50.7M Total
7) Into The Woods- 6.5M Weekend, 114.2M Total
8) The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies- 4.8M Weekend, 244.5M Total
9) Unbroken- 4.2M Weekend, 108.6M TOtal
10) Blackhat- 4M Weekend, 4M Total
11) Night At The Museum 3- 3.8M Weekend, 104.7M Total
