The final installment from the “The Hunger Games” series has done a big business of $11.3 million. “Mockingjay – Part 2” has become the second film releasing this year that has ruled box office for four consecutive weeks.
Every movie buff in North America seems to be busy discussing “Mockingjay – Part 2” on phones, coffee tables, office desks and where not. Let’s turn some pages, remember when 2012’s “The Hunger Games” was released? According to Collider.com, the 2012 movie had met similar box office success by staying on top for 4 consecutive weeks. But “Part 2” is still 12% behind “Mockingjay 1” when talking about actual domestic total. The Part 2 is also way behind in terms of global earnings when compared to part 1, released in 2014.
Well, if we talk about how well other movies did the weekend that has passed, then “In the Heart of the Sea” is indisputably second in the list of the movies that created box office magic. The movie has scribbled $11 million on the weekend chart. The speculations were high just one week ago that the movie would brag itself the first place by earning $15 million. But sadly, something like this did not happen. Rotten Tomato gave it a coveted score of 43%. CinemaScore audiences were happy to give it B+.
Another movie of Warner Bros, “Creed,” produced by Sylvester Stallone, is meanwhile doing quite well. It is worth noting that after Stallone received Golden Globe nomination for supporting role in the movie, “Creed,” which is third in the list with 32.5%. “The Good Dinosaur” by Pixar holds (-31.5%) and gets itself the label of a release that earned very less.
Now let’s talk about “Star Wars 7!” There were huge expectations from the movie that it would beat the Jurassic World’s record of $208 million and claim its name to fame for being the movie with highest domestic debut. It can be speculated that the makers of the movie are targeting it to earn $225 million right now. “The Force Awakens” has tapped $50 million and more and that too in advance ticket sales. Many from their experience in industry can make it that it can make a new record.
