'Mockingjay - Part 2' Retains First Place with $21.3M on Black Friday; 'The Good Dinosaur' Posts Healthy $15.7M; 'Creed' Packs a Punch with $11.7MNovember 28, 2015 02:35 AM

by BoxOffice Staff

Please note that figures and totals are a mix of estimates and actuals reported by the studios due to the holiday weekend.

Lionsgate reports that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 added an estimated $21.25 million on Black Friday, bringing its 8-day domestic total to $168 million. That puts the final film of the franchise 13 percent behind the pace of last year's predecessor. BoxOffice is projecting a $50 million 3-day weekend for Part 2's sophomore frame, and an overall 5-day holiday weekend take of $74.15 million. Both figures will give the blockbuster pic another first place crown this weekend.

In second place on Friday, The Good Dinosaur posted $15.66 million in its third day of release. That gives the original Pixar film a domestic sum of $32.04 million since opening on Wednesday. By comparison, that puts it 24 percent ahead of the pace of A Bug's Life (Pixar's last non-sequel to open wide over Thanksgiving weekend, which earned nearly $26 million over the Wed-Thu-Fri frame of Thanksgiving weekend in 1998) and 19 percent behind the more recent Tangled (a Disney Animation film). This is also the first Pixar film to open outside of summer since 2004's The Incredibles. While the figures are below expectations for Good Dinosaur, early word of mouth is healthy and the long holiday season will give it plenty of life in the weeks to come. BoxOffice is projecting a $38.5 million 3-day weekend and $54.9 million for the overall 5-day opening.

In a strong third place yesterday, Warner Bros. and MGM report that Creed knocked out another $11.7 million. That brings the franchise revival pic's three-day domestic sum to $24.2 million as very strong reviews and word of mouth continue to accelerate its momentum. The film is trending 29 percent ahead of the inflation-adjusted three-day start of 2006's Rocky Balboa (65 percent when not adjusting) and is certain to keep up the strength of its early run as we head into December. BoxOffice is projecting a $30 million three-day weekend, giving it an impressive overall $42.5 million five-day launch.

Spectre took fourth place on Friday with an estimated $5.285 million. The latest James Bond flick has tallied $168.54 million domestically now. Look for a three-day haul of $12.8 million and five-day take around $18.2 million.

The Peanuts Movie filled out the top five with $4 million yesterday, bringing its total up to $111.1 million. BoxOffice projects a $9.8 million three-day / $13.7 million five-day weekend.

The Night Before continues to build on its healthy word of mouth as it tagged $3.23 million on Black Friday. With $19.1 million in the bank so far, the holiday comedy is poised to display legs heading into Christmas season. Look for an $8 million sophomore three-day weekend, making for an $11.35 million five-day holiday frame.

Meanwhile, Victor Frankenstein continues to struggle after three days of play. With $905,000 on Friday, the film's tally since opening on Wednesday is $1.99 million. We're projecting a $2.3 million three-day frame and $3.39 million five-day overall opening.
