by BoxOffice Staff

Warner Bros. reports that American Sniper added another $3.8 million to its haul on Wednesday, down 49 percent from the same day last week. The biopic has earned $213.4 million domestically to-date, putting it just 2.5 percent behind the pace of 2004's The Passion of the Christ. BoxOffice is forecasting a third consecutive weekend victory for the film over the upcoming Super Bowl weekend.

The Boy Next Door took in $0.84 million yesterday, giving it a 6-day total of $17.8 million. That puts it 19.5 percent ahead of star Jennifer Lopez's The Back-Up Plan.

The Wedding Ringer claimed third place on Wednesday with $0.72 million, down 38 percent from the same day last week. The Kevin Hart-led comedy as brought in $41.8 million through its first 13 days of release.

Oscar contender The Imitation Game was up 3 percent from last Wednesday to $0.55 million yesterday. Its domestic total now stands at $62.2 million.

Paddington capped off the top five with $0.45 million, a healthy 20 percent drop from last week. The well-received animated adaptation has gathered $41.6 million at the domestic box office thus far.

Meanwhile, Mortdecai added $0.28 million yesterday -- giving it a six-day cume of $5.16 million. Strange Magic now stands at $6.25 million through six days with its $0.21 million Wednesday take.
