The Croods 2 remained on top against little competition after Thanksgiving romp.
The pendulum continues to swing. After delivering one of the best weekends of the pandemic era on Thanksgiving, The Croods A New Age stood tall for another week, despite seeing a large drop off.
This Week in Box Office History.
The box office shrank again in a familiar pattern. It took in 43% less than last weekends high water mark, making just 8 million dollars. The top film, Croods 2, saw a larger decline of 54%, and the only new wide release film, Half Brothers, failed to crack the one million dollar mark.
Looking ahead, there’s a distinct lack of razzle dazzle coming down the pipeline. Next week sees no wide releases set to compete with The Croods, and we have to wait to the 18th to see the next wide release, Monster Hunter. Expect the box office to tighten its belt at least one more week before its fortunes swing back to higher totals towards the end of the month.

Top Three Films.
The Croods – A New Age again took the top spot. It pulled in 4.4 million dollars, bringing its domestic total to 20 million dollars in two weeks. The film is pacing decently, with 60 million dollars in total global ticket sales against a 65 million dollar budget.
Half Brothers was this week’s designated wide release, and it had to settle for second place. It took in 700 thousand dollars, opening to mostly lackluster reviews.
Freaky fell to third place, taking in 400 thousand dollars in its fourth week. It has totaled just under 8 million dollars in the US in four weeks of rotation.
One other new release cracked the top ten. All My Life took in 370 thousand dollars playing at 970 theaters, earning it fourth place. Die Hard “ho ho ho-ed” its way to the tenth spot in its first week of re-release.
