Box Office Report December 8th

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

It was the smallest weekend of the year for the box office, and as such from last weekend to this, not much changed.  The only new entry in the top ten this weekend was The Pyramid, opening with only $1.3 million.  Horrible Bosses 2 picked up a bit, nudging Bit Hero 6 out of 3rd by only $378,389, but more importantly Interstellar has not managed to overtake Big Hero 6 in their 5 weeks on the screen.  The first weekend in December proved to be less than exciting, perhaps the second weekend will pick things up, but I have my doubts.

New this week in theatres

Exodus: Gods and Kings

From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (“Gladiator,” “Prometheus”) comes the epic adventure “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. sing state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

Top Five

Pulsing with the rhythm of his greatest stand-up, Chris Rock’s “Top Five” takes things to the next level, reveling in the high and the low, and blending a star-studded comedic romp with an irresistible romance. “Top Five” digs under the surface of show business, politics, rap, and the exigencies of being black and famous today – holding it all up to the light in the way only Chris Rock can. Mingling echoes of Woody Allen and Dick Gregory with the energy of Kanye West and Jay Z, “Top Five” is an original and radically new kind of American movie. Written, directed by, and starring Chris Rock, “Top Five” tells the story of New York City comedian-turned-film star Andre Allen, whose unexpected encounter with a journalist (Rosario Dawson) forces him to confront the comedy career–and the past–that he’s left behind.
