weekend box office
This weekend saw a new leader at multiplexes. ’42′ was a hit, appropriately enough, at the box office.
Jack the Giant Slayer was a box office behemoth over the weekend.
The comedy pairing Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy earned an estimated $37 million on its debut weekend.
On another cold, slow weekend at multiplexes, ‘Warm Bodies’ was the hottest ticket.
No title was able to crack the $20 million mark on a quiet weekend at multiplexes, but a new attraction took the box-office crown.
Jessica Chastain stars in both of the weekend’s top box office draws, ‘Mama’, and ‘Zero Dark Thirty.’
‘Zero Dark Thirty’ topped the box office on the first weekend since the announcement of the Oscar nominations.
Make it three in a row for The Hobbit.
The Hobbit remained a habit for a second straight weekend.
There was nothing middling about the latest Middle-Earth adventure at the box office.
With the holiday-season attractions still at least a week away, December’s second weekend was very slow at multiplexes.
Not a bad box-office weekend at multiplexes, especially on the traditionally slow weekend after Thanksgiving weekend.
“Breaking Dawn – Part 2″, the final installment in the “Twilight” series, was first again, earning another $43 million after scoring the eighth biggest opening of all time a week ago.
“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2″, the fifth and final installment in the wildly popular series of supernatural vampire fantasies, lifted off to a runaway first-place finish by earning an estimated $141 million in its weekend debut, slightly more than the opening take of its predecessor, “Part 1″.
Fifty years and nearly two-dozen films in, James Bond still has box office clout.
