It was a busy Super Bowl weekend! Not just for the Patriots who beat out the Seahawks but also for film fans. As we begin a new week and a new month, let's check out the results from the weekend box office.
Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper" held on to the #1 spot for the 3rd week in a row, racking up $31.8 million. The film has now made $249 million just at the domestic box office. Incredibly impressive. It has also been nominated for Best Picture and Best Actor for Bradley Cooper at the Academy Awards.
In the #2 spot is the family film "Paddington", which made just over $8.5 million in it’s 3rd weekend of release. This brings the worldwide total to almost $200 million and over $50 million domestically.
In fourth is the new Kevin Costner film "Black or White" that opened last weekend, bringing in $6.4 million.
Rounding out the top 5 is the Jennifer Lopez film "The Boy Next Door", which made $6.1 million. That film released on 1/23 and has now racked up $25.3 million at the box office.
