'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Claims $2.21M on TuesdayDecember 17, 2014 01:12 PM

by Daniel Garris

Fox's Exodus: Gods and Kings grossed $2.21 million on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a fifth straight day. The pricey Ridley Scott directed biblical epic starring Christian Bale will obviously fall to second place today with the release of Warner's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (which has already grossed an estimated $11.2 million from Tuesday late night shows that will be counted towards Wednesday). Exodus: Gods and Kings was up a modest 12 percent over Monday's performance, as it was already feeling the impact from The Battle of the Five Armies on Tuesday. The film has grossed $28.29 million in five days. That is on the low end of pre-release expectations and places the film a lackluster 2 percent behind the $28.86 million five-day start of Son of God earlier this year.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 held steady in second place with $1.37 million. The third installment of Lionsgate's blockbuster franchise was up 23 percent over Monday and down a healthy 23 percent from last Tuesday. Mockingjay - Part 1 has grossed $279.37 million through 26 days of release. That makes the film the second highest grossing release of 2014 thus far domestically and places it 22.5 percent behind the $360.35 million 26-day take of last year's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Paramount's Interstellar took in $0.657 million to remain in third. The Christopher Nolan directed sci-fi film was up 26 percent over Monday and down a slim 20 percent from last Tuesday. While Interstellar has been holding up nicely as of late, the film is now likely to take a hit from losing IMAX screens to The Battle of the Five Armies. Interstellar has grossed $167.93 million after 40 days of wide release and has performed significantly stronger overseas.

Warner's Horrible Bosses 2 was up one spot and 23 percent over Monday to claim fourth on Tuesday with $0.621 million. The under-performing comedy sequel was down 34 percent from last Tuesday. Horrible Bosses 2 has grossed a disappointing $44.71 million through three weeks of release.

Living up to its name, Paramount's Top Five rounded out Tuesday's top five with $0.585 million. The critically acclaimed comedy starring and directed by Chris Rock was up 12 percent and down one spot from Monday. Top Five is performing towards the low end of expectations with a five-day start of $7.99 million. The low-budget film will hope to see its strong critical reviews transfer into strong word of mouth going forward.

Computer animated films Penguins of Madagascar and Big Hero 6 claimed sixth and seventh place for the day with respective daily takes of $0.550 million and $0.489 million. Both films experienced healthy daily increases yesterday, as Fox's Penguins of Madagascar was up 42 percent over Monday and Disney's Big Hero 6 was up 30 percent. Respective current total grosses stand at a strong $186.10 million for Big Hero 6 in 40 days and at an underwhelming $59.68 million for Penguins of Madagascar in 21 days.
