Don't mess with Jennifer Lawrence and crew!
Katniss Everdeen and the folks over at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 couldn't be bested by a trio of new releases over the holiday weekend, and the finale of the blockbuster series once again takes the cake at the box office for the second week in a row!
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Mockingjay — Part 2 took in $51.6 million over the weekend and $75.8 million over the entire Thanksgiving holiday, falling only 50 percent from its opening weekend.
To date, Mockingjay — Part 2 has grossed nearly $450 million worldwide over the two weekends, and the entire franchise has now crossed $2.7 billion in gross all time. WOW!!!
Behind the blockbuster franchise, The Good Dinosaur took in $39.2 million over the weekend and a total of $55.6 million for the holiday, which marks the fourth-biggest five-day Thanksgiving opening of all time!
The opening was slightly sluggish for Pixar's usual releases — they typically do more than $60 million on weekend opens — but it still was good enough for second place over the holiday.
Beyond that, Creed was a surprise success, opening with $30.1 million in gross over the weekend, and $42.6 million across the long Thanksgiving holiday, which is already surpassing the film's $37 million budget!
The one disappointment from the weekend was Victor Frankenstein, which earned only $3.4 million across the long holiday, despite having Daniel Radcliffe leading the way. Yikes.
As you can see from the top five for the long Thanksgiving five-day weekend (below), Spectre and The Peanuts Movie rounded things out:
1. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 — $75.8 million
2. The Good Dinosaur — $55.6 million
3. Creed —$42.6 million
4. Spectre —$18.2 million
5. The Peanuts Movie —$13.6 million
One minor note of a film far outside the top five: The Danish Girl did very well, opening to $185,000 in only four theaters this weekend. Of course, that film stars Eddie Redmayne portraying transgender pioneer Lili Elbe.
What'd U go see this weekend?!
