Here’s the run down for the first weekend in 2016:
Star Wars: The Force Awakens $88,300,000
Daddy’s Home $29,000,000
The Hateful Eight $16,240,000
Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip $11,800,000
I will add that among its many other accomplishments, The Force Awakens has pulled off the second largest January weekend of all time and is a mere $20 million away from beating Avatar’s all-time domestic record. Can it pull off another victory this coming weekend? If I were to bet on it, I would bet yes. Check back next week to find out!
