Box Office Numbers: Mo Money, Mo Problems


The top three films from this weekend, which mirror last weekend’s sales, made more than a combined $100m at the box office. Knowing Hollywood, this will lead into a plethora of endless sequels and spin-offs. We already know that Twilight may or may not be rebooted, Skyfall is just another entry in a long, storied line of James Bond films, and Lincoln… well, let’s just say that Lincoln 2: Son of Lincoln should already be in production with J.J. Abrams at the helm. If not, I know what I’ll be doing for the rest of the week.

The rest of this weekend’s box office numbers are below.
