‘American Sniper’ goes from strength to strength
Clint Eastwood’s controversial ‘American Sniper’ went from strength to strength at the North American box office with the highest ever January weekend holdover and an extraordinary $17,444 per theatre average. The Oscar nominated Navy SEAL biopic grossed a further $64.6m over the three days, taking its domestic tally to an exceptional $200.4m.
Newcomer, ‘The Boy Next Door’, starring Jennifer Lopez, also performed well in second place with a lively $14.9m at the top end of expectations. Neither shocking reviews – 13% aggregate rating on RT – nor a moderate ‘B-‘ CinemaScore seemed to have much impact on word of mouth, with the sexy thriller sub-genre establishing a momentum of its own.
Both of the other weekend wide releases performed below already scaled-down expectations, leaving ‘Strange Magic’ and ‘Mortdecai’ facing box office oblivion. They could only muster an ugly $5.5m and $4.2m respectively.prednisolone 5mg tab
