It’s been a 2012 since a Nov. movie has broken a domestic $1. million gross. Although that was the breakout opener for a franchise conclusional benchmark by “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2”, the ensuing significance spotlights on Nov. gradient of films 1-week out in theaters. Back around this past Nov. weekend of 13 to 15 the current franchise fourth of the latest 007 movie hit number one, Box Office Mojo discloses, at a non-descript $35.4 million gross. One that sets a regular earning ceiling marked along the past few years.
Once upon, a swiftly spinning Asgard-forged hammer and Son of Odin stared down 2013s Nov. box office contenders during Marvel’s sophomore installment “Thor: The Dark World”. At number one it grossed $36.5 million, besting respectively “The Best Man Holiday”, “Last Vegas”, “Free Birds” and “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa”.
2014s big Fall holiday month went “Big Hero 6” at 2nd place. Disney via Marvel’s animated feature was bested by the skeptically anticipated long-awaited comedy feature “Dumb and Dumber To”. With a voice-acting ensemble of Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., T.J. Miller, Genesis Rodriguez, Alan Tudyk, James Cromwell and Maya Rudolph the comic book adaptation beat out the two-weeks running and critically acclaimed “Beyond the Lights”.
Last weekend’s runners-up repeated at 2nd ranking as “The Peanuts Movie” gained a not too closing gross against Daniel Craig’s reprisal flick at 007 status.
Third place slates containing the latter three-day’s one of two opening movies that hit within the Top 5. “Love the Coopers” debuted after Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang’s animation; the opening comedy earning $8.4 million. At fourth slates the still going strong “The Martian” with lowering intake of $6.7 million that still outdid the next nationwide debut movie “The 33” on its $5.7 million gross for Warner Bros.
And in case there seems more a countdown on the recent yesteryear, the headlining countdown hardly needs to be mentioned. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” awakens among nationwide theaters on Dec. 18. But Nov. isn’t over with blockbuster franchises of its own opening three-day. On Nov. 20 “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” nocks a bid to make a statement in this present month’s all-time rankings.
Without saying, as it goes, goes into star actress Jennifer Lawrence’s Everdeen Katniss installment having “the odds ever” in its favor. Even with a perhaps surprise number one-attainment made by a drama sans sequel as A-Lister Julia Roberts stars in “The Secret in their Eyes”, which also stars superstar Chiwetel Ejiofor.
