SPECTRE

As predicted, Daniel Craig and Spectre held on for the #1 spot this weekend with 14.2% of check-ins, falling 64.5%.

This big of a drop would normally get a hold over out of the top 3, which we usually see amongst members: the opening weekend movies have always been the biggest draw. However, a huge movie like Spectre clearly has the ability to retain a top place past its first weekend. It also held over well at the box office, taking an easy #1 with $35.4M after a 49.7% drop.

THE 33LOVE THE COOPERS

Following up behind Bond were the two other openings of the weekend, Argentinian mining drama the 33 and Christmas comedy Love the Coopers. They took second and third with 12% and 10.9% respectively. At the box office, the results weren’t quite as exciting, although both movies broke into the top 5: Love the Coopers took 3rd with $8.4M and the 33 nabbed fifth with $5.8M.

Rounding out the top 5 were indie drama Spotlight at number 4, which was impressive given it’s only in 61 theaters currently, then the Peanuts Movie dropping 31% to arrive at fifth with 7.7%. The box office told a different story with the Charles Schulz adaptation: it’s drop of 45% still allowed it to take #2 with $24.2M.

What’s next week? The big finale of the Hunger Games series Mockingjay – Part 2 is finally here! That will surely take a big portion of the weekend, maybe close to 33% or higher. We’ve also got Seth Rogen/Anthony Mackie/Joseph Gordon-Levitt starring comedy the Night Before and the remake of Argentinian drama¬†Secret in Their Eyes.¬†I can’t imagine these will take much check-in share with Hunger Games in theaters too, but I’d think the comedy will come out ahead against the drama.
