WEEKEND ROUNDUP: 'Star Wars' Conquers The Holiday Weekend; Hits $1Billion In 12 Days


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 25-27 were Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Daddy's Home, and Joy.

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


Star Wars: The Force Awakens making almost $150 million on its second weekend is very impressive, but what's more impressive is the fact that it managed to cross the $1 billion mark so fast.  Also, seeing The Hateful Eight grab the #10 spot with $4.6 million and only being played in 100 theaters is a definite sign that this film is on its way to making some serious bank.



Taking the record for the largest second weekend of all-time, Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought in another $149.2 million, dropping a mere 39.8%, for a domestic total of $540.1 million and an impressive 13-day, worldwide total of $1.16 billion, putting it in the 10th spot at the worldwide box office.  If it continues at this pace, it'll definitely have a shot at dethroning the worldwide box office record holder, Avatar.


Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell's latest team-up, Daddy's Home, managed an impressive opening weekend on the coat tails of Star Wars, bringing in $38.7 million.  Combined with its foreign grosses, it brought in a worldwide total of $43.1 million.

3. JOY

The newest collaboration between David O'Russell, Jennifer Lawrence, and Bradley Cooper had a tougher time standing up to the competition, bringing in only $17 million domestically and $19 million worldwide on a $60 million production budget.  Needless to say, the force was NOT strong with this one.


#1 - Star Wars: The Force Awakens - $149,202,860

#2 - Daddy's Home - $38,740,203

#3 - Joy - $17,015,168

#4 - Sisters - $14,189,455

#5 - Alvin & the Chipmunks: The Road Chip - $13,143,329

#6 - The Big Short - $10,531,026

#7 - Concussion (2015) - $10,500,000

#8 - Point Break (2015) - $9,805,000
