Once again The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is number one at the box office… Yawn. The flick fell 60.1% from last weekend to bring in another $17.4 million. It’s bow at $254.5 million domestic.
And that’s all I have to say about that.
In better news, Skyfall, Daniel Craig’s latest turn as James Bond, was number two with $17 million dollars. That’s a 52.1% drop from last weekend. Skyfall is easily the highest grossing James Bond film of all time with $246 million domestic and worldwide tally of $869 million. Call me crazy, but I think this James Bond character may have one or two more movies in him.
Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln continues to strut along on it’s good solid legs. This weekend the Oscar baiting flick nabbed $13.509 million for a drop of 47.4% from last weekend. It now stands at $83.6 million domestic.
Number four goes to Rise of the Guardians. The under performing animated kiddie action flick dropped another 43.2% with $13.5. It’s now taken in $48.9 million domestically. I’m still kind of shocked this isn’t doing better business.
Life of Pi, Ang Lee’s adaptation of Yann Martel’s “unfilmable” novel, brought in another $12 million, falling 46.6%. It’s now at $48.3 million domestic.
Check the chart below to see the rest of the Top Ten. Also, note Killing Them Softly, which had decent reviews, more or less fizzled with an opening weekend of $7 million.
