Once again, Star Wars: The Force Awakens sits perched atop the box office results for the weekend, taking in an estimated $90.24 million. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now the 6th highest grossing film of all time with an estimated $1.51 billion worldwide. The film shows no signs of slowing down, and will likely continue to dominate the competition for weeks to come with a weak January schedule of movies coming to theaters.
The race for second place continued and Daddy's Home took the first "not Stars Wars spot" for the second weekend in a row with an estimated $29.2 million. Quentin Tarantino's eighth film, The Hateful Eight expanded nationwide from a limited 100 theater release and took third place with an estimated $15.7 million. It will likely take a hit when The Revenant opens next week. Jennifer Lawrence continues to enjoy success, again having two films in the top 10, Joy at sixth with an estimated $10.4 million, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 2 sneaking in at #10 with an estimated $4.62 million. The last Hunger Games film has now earned over $635 million worldwide.
