The box office was shaken up this week when ‘Skyfall’ reclaimed the number one spot, after having lost it for three weeks with $11 million dollars. The movie has been out for five weeks and now has become Sony’s highest earning film. This is a big deal for the Bond franchise all around.
The animated film ‘Rise of the Guardians’ also made a jump this week taking the second spot with $10.5 million dollars. Perhaps its theme and Santa Claus hero character have made it more appealing with the holidays nearing. Surprisingly though this film has not been a success for Dreamworks Animation.
After three weeks at number one ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ fell to number three with $9.2 million dollars. Either way this last chapter of the saga is the highest earning out of all of them, holding on to $751.1 million dollars world wide it probably will reach the $800 million mark before its run is over.
The Top 10 in the Box Office are:
1. Skyfall – $11 mil
2. Rise of the Guardians – $10.5 mil
3. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 – $9.2 mil
4. Lincoln – $9.1 mil
5. Life of Pi – $8.3 mil
6. Playing for Keeps – $6 mil
7. Wreck-It Ralph – $4.9 mil
8. Red Dawn – $4.3 mil
