Here are your top 5 films at the box office for the weekend of Nov. 9th-11th:
- Skyfall - $87.8M (Opening Weekend) - $90M Total - ($200M production budget)
- Wreck-It Ralph - $33.056M = $93,690,000 10-Day Total - ($165M production budget)
- Flight - $15.1M = $47,770,000 10-Day Total - ($31M production budget)
- Argo - $6.745M = $87,711,000 31-Day Total - ($44.5M production budget)
- Taken 2 - $4M = $131,287,000 38-Day Total - ($45M production budget)
Coming in at second is last week’s number one film, Wreck-It Ralph, which brought in an additional $33 million this past weekend. The film’s domestic total now stands at over $93 million, more than half its reported $165 million total and should hold over well until the year’s last animated film, Rise of the Guardians, gets released over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Flying in at third is Robert Zemeckis’ Flight, which grossed an additional $15 million. The film, which should garner Denzel Washington another Oscar nomination for Best Actor, now has a domestic total of over $47 million, $16 million more than its production budget of $31 million. After the box office disaster that Zemeckis’ motion capture animation production Mars Needs Moms was, these numbers should help get some of his future projects up and going.
At number four is another award contender in Ben Affleck’s Argo. The political/spy thriller based on real life events took in another $6 million this past weekend to bring up its domestic total to over $87 million, and has an outside chance of breaking the $100 million mark.
Rounding out the top five is Liam Nesson’s Taken 2. The sequel has managed to stay alive in the top five since its release as it took in another $4 million this past weekend to bring up its domestic total to over $131 million over thirty-eight days. It’s a little under $14 million what its predecessor finished with, but the film is still a big hit which may spark a third film.
