Not to dumb to take the crown this weekend as "Dumb and Dumber To" earns the #1 spot with 38.1 for it's debut. Just above expectations and word-of-mouth is fair on it. Could potentially crack the 100 mil mark when it is said and done too. Holding ground at #2 is "Big Hero 6" with 36 mil more and has broken the 100 mil ceiling as expected with a nice 111.7 mil cume so far. Potentially 200 mil? Also holding ground is "Interstellar" with another 29.2 mil and it is just shy of 100 mil but should hit it by Tuesday the latest. New at #4 is "Beyond the Lights" with 6.5 mil and almost spot on for expectations. Rounding off the top 5 is "Gone Girl" with 4.6 mil and hanging in the overall top 10 for the last 7 weeks in release!
New movies next week:
Only one wide release this coming weekend and rightly so ... "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1" with over 4000 screens. Should be an easy 100 mil to open as pre-release tickets sales have mostly sold out already and early Thursday midnight shows. Possible 150+ opening weekend.
