After the long weekend, the Rocky reboot/sequel Creed has climbed to the top of the check-in charts for members and nabbed 20% of the total from the 25th to the 29th.
Lagging behind at about 50% of Creed’s reigning total was the Good Dinosaur, which just barely grabbed second with 10.6%, followed closely by the Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 with 10.2% after dropping 62% from its opening weekend.
The remaining of the top 5 was rounded out by the Night Before in fourth, which took 9.1% on an even 50% drop from last week, and critically-acclaimed Spotlight at fifth with 6.5%. Only dropping 24% after adding another 300 or so theaters, this drama is looking to hold well throughout the holidays as it generates more Oscar buzz.
The other wide release of the holiday, Victor Frankenstein, took a poor turn at both the box office and with members. Only making $3M since its release and getting a low 6.4% of check-ins, the Daniel Radcliffe/James McAvoy-starring take on the classic story by Mary Shelley does not seem to have connected well with anybody unfortunately. Maybe they missed the Halloween crowd?
What’s next week? We’ll be seeing a weekend of limited releases that include Macbeth, Chi-Raq, Life, and Youth, but the big box office draw will be Chistmasy horror (slash comedy?) Krampus. I don’t know how strong it’ll be, but even with the Mother Theresa biopic the Letters coming to 1000 theaters and providing a little competition, Krampus should take the weekend easily amongst members. It’ll be interesting to see how the remainder of the top 5 turns out!
