WEEKEND ROUNDUP: 'Hunger Games' Inches Past Newcomer 'Krampus'

       


Welcome to WEEKEND ROUNDUP, formerly BOX OFFICE BREAKDOWN, where we discuss this weekends box office results.  The TOP 3 films for the weekend of December 4-6 were The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 2Krampus, and Creed.

Let's take a look at this week's box office results:


WHAT STANDS OUT?

This week was a poor week at the box office, with no film bringing in over $20 million.  It is nice to see the new Christmas horror/comedy Krampus make it into the Top 3.  I am slightly surprised that Creed dropped out of the Top 3 already, seeing as it's been getting a lot of good word-of-mouth.  This also marks the first week since it opened that The Martian wasn't in the Top 10.


THE TOP 3:

1. THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PT. 2






The final installment of the ├╝ber popular film series, The Hunger Games, took a big dip this weekend, dropping 63.7% to bring in $18.9 million.  This brings Mockingjay Pt. 2 up to $227.4 million domestically and $524.2 million worldwide.


2. KRAMPUS



The new Christmas-time horror/comedy, Krampus, came out this week to a solid opening of $16.3 million.  Combined with the foreign grosses, that puts its worldwide total at $19.7 million on only a $15 million production budget.


3. THE GOOD DINOSAUR



The newest Disney/Pixar film, The Good Dinosaur, also took a significant drop this week, bringing in only $15.3 million and dropping 60.9%.  This puts its domestic total at $75.8 million and its worldwide total at $131.2 million.
