I surprised even myself this weekend. Big Hero 6 was the box office winner with $56.2 million. That’s a solid opening, but with a budget of $165 million, Bay Max will need some box office legs to reap any profit.
Interstellar blasted into number two with $50 million for the weekend. That’s a far cry behind Nolan’s other non-Batman opening of $62 million for Inception four years ago.
Gone Girl moved up a spot to number three after six weeks in release with $6.1 million for a worldwide total of $303 million. The real mystery is why this film wasn’t made sooner.
Ouija fell to number four with $6 million for a domestic total of $43.4 million. With a tiny budget of $5 million, you don’t need a magic eight ball to tell you a sequel is in the works.
St. Vincent moved up two spots to number five with $5.7 million. This Indie charmer is all set for Awards season as well as a high profit margin.
Nightcrawler tumbled to number six with $5.5 million and a domestic total of $19.7 million. Looks like those rave reviews couldn’t help this creepy thriller.
Fury fell to number seven with $5.5 million ($12K shy of the above). After four weeks in release this war drama is finally in the black; but with only $1 million in profit.
John Wick fought his way to number eight with $4 million and a domestic total of $34 million. It’s modest budget of $20 million means a solid profit for this revenge flick.
Alexander came in at number nine with another $3.4 million. This family fun romp made for a solid little hit.
Rounding out the top ten was The Book of Life with $2.8 million. It’s high budget of $50 million has left this animated movie in the red and out of the top ten in just four weeks.

Without much competition next week, it looks like Dumb and Dumber To will reign supreme. Tune in to see if I’m right. Until then, happy movie going!
