Welcome back to the weekend box office report everyone, as expected 'The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies dominated the box office weekend!
Coming in at number 1 was 'The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies' with an estimated $56.2 million over the weekend(with an overall box office opening of $90.6 million since opening up on Wednesday). Now this is a good number for this weekend box office, but in terms of the overall series including 'The Lord of Rings Trilogy' this is the weakest opening of the series. This was kind of predictable when considering that this trilogy is feeling bit of fatigue, plus the response to this trilogy overall is nowhere near the same as the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
Fighting it out at the number 2 spot this weekend is another pair of new films 'Annie' and 'Night at the Museum' with 'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb' coming in with a not so great $17.3 million. Once again this has to to with this franchise also kind of coming to an end with less people getting really excited. Then you have the terrible and not needed remake of 'Annie' coming in with an expected low low of around $16.3 million clearly audiences were not really wanted this remake.
Rounding out the top 5 at the box office this weekend is 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' at number 4 with an estimated $8.1 million. This happens to be another entry that is not really going according to plan and the studio at this point just hope to make up their loses at the international box office. At number 5 is 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay--Part 1 with an extimated $7.8 million.
