And it’s on! Big Hero 6! Interstellar! Disney vs Nolan! Who would win, who would lose? Answer: Big Hero 6 done whupped some space travel ass.
The latest Disney flick took an easy first place with over $56 million in domestic ticket sales at the North American box office, while Christopher Nolan’s ambitious Interstellar had to settle for second. A decent haul, Big Hero 6 may be trailing behind The Lego Movie ($69 million), Wreck-It Ralph ($60.6 million) and Frozen ($67.3 million), but it’s ahead of Tangled ($48.7 million). And with some decent word of mouth reviews so far, expect this film to stick around for quite a few weeks.
Christopher Nolan’s latest flick is doing some decent business so far. While nowhere near the numbers of The Dark knight Rises ($160.8 million) or Inception ($62.7 million), Interstellar is still on track to make back its budget, as it has managed to haul in over $132 million so far. Here’s a look at how everyone else did:
- Big Hero 6 – $56.2 Million
- Interstellar – $47.5 Million
- Gone Girl – $6.2 Million
- Ouija – $5.8 Million
- St Vincent – $5.6 Million
- Nightcrawler – $5.4 Million
- Fury – $5.3 Million
- John Wick – $4.1 Million
- Alexander blah blah film title – $3.5 Million
- The Book Of Life – $2.7 Million
Top ten departures this week include Dracula Untold and The Judge. The rebootening of the Dracula legend has proven to be a moderate success for Universal, as the king of vampires has managed to almost triple the $70 million budget that birthed it with an international total of over $200 million so far. Meanwhile, Robert Downey Jr finished off some judging with $70 million in the bank off of worldwide ticket sales for The Judge.
