I’m on one heck of a hot streak. Movie goer IQs dropped this weekend as Dumb and Dumber To came in at number one with $38 million.
Big Hero 6 dropped a spot as a very close number two with $36 million.
Interstellar lost some glow at number three with $29.1 million. Its domestic take of $97.8 million so far would be impressive if not for its $165 million budget.
Beyond the Lights opened beyond expectations at number four with $6.5 million.
Gone Girl is still finding ticket sales at number five with another $4.6 million and a domestic total of $153 million.
St. Vincent stayed at number six with $4 million for a domestic total of $33.2 million. That’s good news for the Studio, but will Bill Murray get that Oscar nom he desperately wants?
Fury whimpered at number seven with $3.8 million, but the film is finally in the black after five weeks in release.
Nightcrawler snuck into number eight with $3.08 million. After such a strong opening, the mystery thriller owes its low budget of $8 a debt of gratitude for the ability to turn a profit.
Ouija summoned a spot at number nine with $3.02 million and a domestic total of $48 million.
Rounding out the top ten was Birdman, which opened to a wide release and $2.4 million in ticket sales.
Check out the full box office chart below:

It’s a pretty safe bet that The Hunger Games Mocking Jay Part 1 will reign supreme next weekend. The question is, just how high will it open? I’m guessing north of $160 million. Tune in to see if I’m right.
Until then, happy movie going!
