Clint Eastwood’s controversial ‘American Sniper’ continued to grab the headlines with another spectacular Friday at the North American box office. The Navy SEAL biopic exceeded expectations with an outstanding $18.3m haul, putting it on pace for a never before achieved $60m during a film’s second weekend on wide release in January.
It was also a strong Friday for newcomer, ‘The Boy Next Door’, starring Jennifer Lopez, which grossed $5.6m at the top end of market forecasts and the erotic thriller should finish the frame around an impressive $15m. Audiences liked it more than critics with a ‘B-‘ CinemaScore – not bad for the genre – against a putrid critical 13% aggregate rating on RT.
Both of the other weekend wide releases bombed just below the $1.5m mark, leaving ‘Mortdecai’ and ‘Strange Magic’ facing box office oblivion. Although below already low market expectations, it won’t surprise anyone.
