There were two big name movies that were set to come out this week and both movies had a chance to grab the top spot. Mockingjay part 2 is not getting the box office that was predicted leaving the title for top movie wide open this Thanksgiving weekend. Both new movies gave it a strong push, but were not able to grab the top spot.
Mockingjay part 2 repeats at the top of the box office with $51.6 million at the box office. The movie is creeping towards the $200 million mark but it’s unlikely to reach the $300 million mark especially with the lineup of movies coming out in December. Unlike the other series, this would have Mockingjay part 2 have the lowest box office in the series which is usually the movie that has the highest.
The two new movies to come out where the new Disney movie, The Good Dinosaur, which premiered with $39.1 million, just beating out the other new movie. The latest Rocky movie, Creed, impressed with its $30.1 million opening and strong reviews. The Good Dinosaur holds a 76% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and Creed holds an astounding 92%, both better than Mockingjay part 2 at 71%.
Rounding out the top five is going to be Spectre with $12.8 million and The Peanuts Movie with $9.7 million. Both movies are over the $100 million mark but are likely to remain around the spots that they are now. For the rest of the box office you can go here.
This week we start the movies coming out in December and it’s going to be a doozy of a month. Not only is the new Star Wars movie set to come out, but also a whole slew of Oscar contenders. This week we get two movies that are a little unexpected. The horror Christmas film, Krampus, won’t likely do well, and neither will the latest adaptation of Macbeth. Mockingjay part 2 is likely to 3-peat unless The Good Dinosaur and Creed make a strong surge this week.
