NORTH AMERICA: 'The Revenant' Stays Put In First Place on Wednesday, Now at $124M; 'Star Wars' Climbs to $883M; 'Dirty Grandpa' Claims Third, Reaches $14M In Six Days; 'The Boy' & 'The 5th Wave' Remain Outside Top 5
on January 28, 2016
Fox reports today that The Revenant retained first place on Wednesday with $1.58 million, down just 29 percent from last week. That brings the 12-time Oscar nominated epic to a domestic tally of $124.3 million thus far as it continues to playing strongly on the heels of awards circuit success and buzz around Leonardo DiCaprio's leading performance.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens added another $1.325 million yesterday, off just 27 percent from the same day last week. That brings the all-time domestic record holder's running total up to a staggering $883.3 million through 41 days of release.
Dirty Grandpa rounded out the top three on Wednesday with $0.96 million. That gives the comedy a six-day total of $14.3 million -- notably ahead of the pace of That Awkward Moment, but still a relatively modest tally thus far.
Falling just outside the top five yesterday, The Boy posted $0.606 million in sixth place. The film has earned $13.0 million through six days of release.
Meanwhile, The 5th Wave added $0.602 million yesterday for a new six-day total of $12.6 million. Unfortunately, the young adult adaptation continues to perform below expectations.
