Battle at the Box Office 11/18


Thor: The Dark World managed to stay at number one but it had surprisingly stiff competition from the only new release last week.  Thor 2 took in another $38.4 million, over a 50% drop from last weekend’s opening.  It’s up to over $146 million for it’s two weeks out and seems like it could crack the $200 million, possibly even $250 million mark.  The Best Man Holiday almost dethroned Thor with a strong $30.5 million opening, doubling the original movie’s, The Best Man, opening of $9 million ($14 million with inflation).  It’s one of the best openings for a movie targeted at African American audiences,  better than every Tyler Perry movie except Medea goes to Jail and a little bit off from last year’s Think Like a Man.  Last Vegas and Free Birds swapped places with Last Vegas taking third $8.8 million and Free Birds taking $8.3 million.  Bad Grandpa rounded out the top 5 with $7.6 million.  Down on the list, Gravity became the fifth highest grossing movie of the year, moving to over $240 million with this weekend’s additional $6.2 million.  The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will most likely destroy the competition this weekend, the only question is by how much will it destroy everything.
