‘Force Awakens’ expected to claim all-time domestic crown on Monday

 As the second day of 2016 gets underway on saturday, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has easily claimed the No. 2 spot among all time domestic grossers. Disney reported a cume through Friday of $686.4M, . Industry guestimates have Episode VII adding another $34M or thereabouts Sunday which would elevate J.J. Abrams’ contribution to the canon to about $720 million on its 16th day of release. If Sunday business as projected brings in $21M-$25M the 3-day/third weekend figure will be something like $90M-$94M.  By the end of business Sunday with a cume of $741M-$745M,  the latest Star Wars saga seems assured of surpassing Avatar‘s all time domestic record of $760.5M sometime Monday.

Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, expanded from 100 theaters to 2,474, added an estimated $6.4M Friday and is expected to gross $4M Sunday for a 3-day figure of about $17M. The movie’s 70MM screenings still lead the pack across the country, selling out many evening shows, per the Weinstein Company. Overall the movie seems to be a bigger draw in the West and Southwest, especially so in smaller to midsize markets including Portland, Salt Lake City, Omaha, Kansas City, Boise and Reno to name just a few.-Asfar
