Here’s a reason why Grinch will laugh: With an estimated $ 66 million for the weekend, “Dr Seuss The Grinch” – with Benedict Cumberbatch – had the best opening ever for a Christmas movie, reporting the deadline. It hit Ron Howard’s live action movie “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” with Jim Carrey, which featured the previous record with an opening of $ 55 million.

With schools and shops closed today due to Veterans Day, “The Grinchs” vacation total can reach 70 million dollars. (Estimates are not in for Monday’s Cash Offices.)

The animated film was strongly promoted with IHOP ads (and special Grinch pancakes), Grinch themes Amazon boxes, a Grinch filter on Snapchat and the Cumberbatch launch “The Grinch for 1

soldiers fighting Nazi zombies showed a bigger draw than Claire Foy as the new Lisbeth Salander.

WWII / horror movie earned an estimated $ 10.1 million. Sony reports that “Spiders Web” earned $ 8 million, although it could actually be closer to $ 7.7 million.

“Although [“Spider’s Web”] amounts to 70% abroad, it’s hard to see it breaking evenly,” a “trusted film funding source,” said Deadline.

Relish Mix told Deadline one of the reasons “Spiders Web” did not do much as David Finchers 2011’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”: “Moviegoers are confused by why Rooney Mara does not return to the series. is also confused why the studio jumped over original entries to a lesser-known saga. “

” The Girl in the Spider Web “is a follow-up to the Millennium Trilogy created by Stieg Larsson. It is the first novel not written by Larsson, who died in 2004. Throughout Sweden, all three books in the trilogy have been made to films, we never have American versions of second and third books.

New release “The Front Runner”, starring Hugh Jackman as scandalized politician Gary Hart, boasted one weekend best per screen share of $ 140000 on four NY and LA- places. But it’s not good for a potential Oscar participant: They usually average closer to $ 40,000 to $ 50,000 per screen. With so-called reviews and an election campaign that hurt the movie more than helped, “The Front Runner” is unlikely to be in operation for the Oscar race this year.

In other box office news, Queen Biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” continues to be strong and will hit 100 million dollars today.
