'American Sniper' Easily Remains #1 on Tuesday with $5.02MJanuary 28, 2015 12:20 PM

by Daniel Garris

Warner's American Sniper grossed $5.02 million on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a twelfth consecutive day. The blockbuster Clint Eastwood directed film starring Bradley Cooper was up 20 percent over Monday and down a sizable 49 percent from last Tuesday. American Sniper has grossed a massive $209.60 million after twelve days of wide release. That places the film an extremely impressive 58 percent ahead of the $132.53 million twelve-day take of 2013's Gravity. Given the magnitude of its grosses and its continued strong holding power, American Sniper looks like it will have no problem remaining in first place over the upcoming weekend.

The Boy Next Door held steady in second place with $1.22 million. The Jennifer Lopez led thriller from Universal was up a very healthy 49 percent over Monday. The Boy Next Door has grossed $16.95 million in five days, which is towards the higher end of pre-release expectations and represents a good start, especially with the film's low production budget in mind. The Boy Next Door is running 20.5 percent ahead of the $14.07 million five-day take of 2010's The Back-Up Plan.

Sony's The Wedding Ringer took in $0.973 million to remain in third. The modestly budgeted comedy starring Kevin Hart and Josh Gad was up 42 percent over Monday and down 43 percent from last Tuesday. The Wedding Ringer has grossed $41.04 million in twelve days. The film is currently running 4 percent ahead of the $39.42 million twelve-day take of last year's About Last Night.

The Weinstein Company's The Imitation Game was up one spot and an impressive 54 percent over Monday to take fourth on Tuesday with $0.749 million. The Best Picture nominee starring Benedict Cumberbatch was up 4 percent over last Tuesday. The Imitation Game continues to display strong holding power and has grossed a healthy $61.69 million to date.

Fellow Weinstein Company release Paddington was down one spot from Monday to round out Tuesday's top five with $0.669 million. The well received family film was up 27 percent over Monday and down just 34 percent from last Tuesday. Paddington has grossed $41.13 million in twelve days. That places the film a slim 1 percent below the $41.58 million twelve-day take of last year's The Nut Job.

Lionsgate's Mortdecai and Disney's Strange Magic continued their poor starts with respective eighth place and ninth place grosses of $0.404 million and $0.304 million. Strange Magic has only managed $6.03 million in five days, while the five-day start for Mortdecai stands at an even softer $4.88 million. Both films will obviously disappear from theatres quickly.
