By Tribute on January 10, 2016 | Leave a Comment

Star Wars: The Force Awakensstar-wars-the-force-awakens poster sized topped the weekend box office for the fourth time in a row, earning an estimated $41.6 million. As of last Wednesday, it has officially surpassed James Cameron‘s Avatar to become the highest-grossing North American release of all time. Opening in China on Saturday didn’t hurt its box office earnings either, debuting with a whopping $53 million in that market alone. There’s no stopping this juggernaut of a movie, again getting 4 stars from users.

Leonardo DiCaprio can now call himself an awards season shoo-in and a box office success. His movie The Revenant opened in a close second over the weekend with a massive $38 million, blowing away its early projections of $18-20 million. It was also the first movie to top the rebooted Star Wars even for a single day, earning the most bucks on Friday. users also seem to love this man vs. nature flick, giving it a 4.4 star rating.

The Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg duo comedy Daddy’s Home, despite falling from second to third, is still doing some steady work at the box office, raking in another $15 million this weekend. users gave this movie a 3.7 star rating.

Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer stars in the low-budget horror flick The Forest, which debuted in fourth this weekend, earning a respectable (and surprising) $13.1 million, as well as a 3.9 star rating from users.

Another duo comedy, this time pairing funny ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Sisters managed to stay in the top five this weekend, earning another $7.2 million. users gave this party flick 3 stars. ~Shelby Morton
