Coming in at number 1 is Exodus: Gods and Kings with opening weekend profits of $24.5 million US and $49 million overseas. The Biblical based film follows the story of Moses.
Number two on the weekend countdown is The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 with a weekend revenue of $13.3 million. Previously, this film has held the number one spot since it’s November release. My friend says its hands down the favorite at Organo Gold.
Family friendly movie, Penguins of Madagascar, had the third best ticket sales over the weekend. The film brought in $7.3 million.
Top Five, a new film by Chris Rock, was only available for viewing at approximately 1,000 theaters. Although the release was limited Top Five managed to bring in $7.2 million and just barely missed being in the top three movies seen this weekend.
