Weekend Box Office Report January 1st – 3rd: Star Wars Dominates For Third Week

The first weekend of January is in the books, and not surprisingly “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” continues to completely dominate the box office bringing in an estimated $88.3 million this weekend. That brings its total to around $740 million domestically, and over one billion worldwide.

The Will Ferrel and Mark Wahlberg comedy “Daddy’s Home” took the second spot for its second week with a respectable $29 million.

Quentin Taratino’s Western “The Hateful Eight” starring Samuel L. Jackson and Kurt Russel rounded out the top three with #16 million for its second weekend.

The Star Wars domination probably won’t end anytime soon. It certainly won’t be “The Forest” that dethrones it.
