Box office Week Ending 1/5

See also

It was an exciting weekend at the box office as The Hobbit falls from the top spot for the first time in it’s run and we get a new #1 movie and it’s not the movie you would think.

Frozen (Clip ‘Elsa’: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ozfc0-dD7w) remains strong at the box office once again grabbing the top spot this week with an estimated $20.7 million, bringing the 7-week total to $297.8 million. This is an impressive run for the movie as it hasn’t dropped past #3 at the box office since it premiered in November. It should pass over the $300-million next week and have a solid total by the end of it’s run.

Premiering at #2 is Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6DYsGTMkCU) with an estimated $18.2 million. The movies in this franchise usually came out in October, but this movie shows some success not coming out around Halloween time, but not nearly as much as expected. The movie had the 2nd lowest opening, next to the first movie, but we all know what happened after that.

Dropping to #3 is The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smug (Clip ‘Waken the Beast’: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dSGMrB5TFo) with an estimated $16.2 million. This brings the 4-week total to $229.6 million. The movie is the lowest grossing film in the Lord of the Rings series and probably will remain there needing over $70 million to beat out An Unexpected Journey.

Moving up to #4 is The Wolf of Wall Street (Clip ‘Expensive Dinner’: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWwxwShhQbA) with an estimated $13.4 million, bringing the 2- week total to $63.2 million. The movie is getting great reviews with the critics and the fans, but it’s got some way to go to make it a success at the box office, still $37 million short of it’s $100 million budget.

Rounding out the top 5 is American Hustle (Clip ‘We’re not happy’: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpDGRufNdDk) with an estimated $13.2 million. This brings the 4-week total to $88.7 million. The movie is considered a success at the box office as it doubled it’s $40 million budget and should make some noise next week at the Golden Globes.

Hercules is the only big name movie coming out this week and should be able to find it’s way in the top 5 and depending on well it’s received by the fans, it might be able to top the chart next week.
