It's the Holidays, and it's the perfect time to take the family to a movie.
Many fans flocked to theatres over the weekend to watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which took the top spot at the box office yet again. The highly anticipated prequel brought in $15-Million on Saturday alone, and went on to take in an estimated $110-Million over the Holiday weekend.
The animated feature Sing came in second place, bringing in $7.8-Million on Christmas Eve, and is estimated to gross a total between $51-$54-Million for the four day weekend.
The Sci-Fi adventure Passengers, which stars Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, took in $2.8-Million on Saturday, bringing its six-day gross total to an estimated $27-Million. Despite an all-star cast, and a budget of $120-Million, the film has underperformed since release.
Another box office disappointment has been the video game adoption Assassin's Creed. Starring Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Irons, the movie has received negative feedback from fans and critics alike. On Christmas Eve, the movie brought in an additional $2.2-Million and is expected to gross a total between $22-$23-Million by weekend's end.
