Weekend B.O. Dec. 6-8 (Everything Dropped)

As expected, overall box office numbers dropped sharply, as they always do the weekend after the Thanksgiving holiday.

And the severe Arctic blast, which has affected most of the country, even as far south as Los Angeles County, no doubt didn’t help things either. That being said, people somehow managed to go the movies; and this weekend the Disney animated film Frozen grossed some $31.6 million, edging out The Hunger Games: Catching Fire for the No 1 slot, with Fire coming in at No. 2, earning some $27 million.

The one major release this weekend, Out of the Furnace with Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson and Zoe Saldana, didn’t fare so well with under $5.4 million. But then again, why Relativity Media would release a really excellent, but grim, downbeat, violent drama during the Christmas holiday season is a mystery. There's nothing in it even remotely resembling holiday cheer.

As for holdouts, for those people who, last week, were predicting that audiences would go check out Black Nativity this weekend, well, they didn’t.

The film dropped a whopping 71% to 14th place most likely due to bad word of mouth and the fact that there’s just too much competition out there.

Meanwhile, as for The Best Man Holiday, though it dropped some 67% from last week it still held on for a No. 8 slot in the top ten.

And 12 Years A Slave was in 13th place with just over $35 million to date.

Next week is going to be the battle for the ages when The Hobbit: The Desolation of the Smug, or the Smaug or The Smurfs or whatever it’s called, goes up against A Madea Christmas.
