Coen brothers comedy “Hail, Caesar!” released in theaters this week and took the second spot with an estimated $11.4 million. That’s the lowest grossing wide release for the Coen brothers, even though the film has received positive scores from critics.
For the second week in a row, the animated family comedy “Kung Fu Panda 3” held on to the top spot with a respectable $21 million.
Both “The Revenant” (#3) and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (#4) managed to stay ahead of debuting films “The Choice” (#5) and “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” (#6)
I can’t help but chuckle at PPZ flopping, in large part because I grew tired of seeing the TV spot for it so often.
The weekend chart, including the rest of the top 10, is listed below the “Hail, Caesar!” trailer.
|1||1||Kung Fu Panda 3||$21,000,000||2|
|4||3||Star Wars: The Force Awakens||$6,890,000||8|
