The rest of the box office looks like previous weeks. For the second weekend in a row Big Hero 6 and Interstellar are number 2 and 3 with $20 million and $15.1 million respectively. Both have done really well and Interstellar is on its way to becoming the highest grossing movie of the year not based on a preexisting story. Dumb and Dumber To on the other hand dropped hard in its second week. After an opening weekend of $36.1 million it dropped to $13.8 million. The 61% drop does not look good for the future of the movie.
In its 8th week Gone Girl is still doing well landing at number 5 with $2.8 million. Beyond the Lights didn't get very much hype but doing respectable with $2.6 million at the number 6 spot. Fury and Birdman are battling it out for 8 and 9 with Fury projected to get $1.9 million and Birdman $1.8.
Cracking the top 10 in limited release with an average of $10,714 per theatre is the Oscar hopeful The Theory of Everything. Another Oscar hopeful Foxcatcher didn’t make the top 10 but did land at number 17. Playing in only 24 theatres it grossed $474,000 for a very impressive average of $19,750 per theatre.
