Weekend Box Office Recap – 12/16/2013


Out of the movies which hit theaters for the November 22nd weekend in 2013, two of them earned enough at the box office to be in the Top 10 at the box office. How did they fare?

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

American Hustle

Saving Mr. Banks

Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas also debuted in theaters, but it has not been rated by any of our affiliated reviewers yet. It earned $16 M on the weekend.

None of them are the top-rated films in the theater right now. That distinction STILL belongs to the film about potentially being lost in space, which has worked its way into the upper eschelon of films ALL TIME, not just in 2013.


  • Currently rated 92.1% and ranked #1 overall in 2013, and 38th all-time
    • 87% Rated It Buttery (high)
    • 9% Rated It Regular (above average)
    • 4% Rated It Half-Popped (average)
