Release date shifts have led to two things happening this week at the US box office. Superhero sequel Thor: The Dark World stayed on top, garnering an estimated $38.4 million, and fellow follow-up (albeit to a film that was released in 1999!) The Best Man Holiday opened strongly against it, taking home a healthy $30.5 million.
Besides the top two, Last Vegas got a winning hand, edging back up one place for third and $8.8 million, trading places with ‘toon Free Birds, which slipped to fourth with $8.3 million. Rounding out the top five was Bad Grandpa, which, with $7.6 million this weekend, is on the way to make more than $100 million in the US alone.
Gravity floated in place at sixth, earning $6.3 million. Ender’s Game fell to seventh with $6.2 million and 12 Years A Slave dropped one place to eighth, taking in $4.7 million. Captain Phillips was ninth, making $4.5 million and About Time slipped one place to 10th, earning $3.4 million.
