Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper,” in his All-American way, made the greatest of January killings at the domestic box office this weekend, coming in first with a record-shattering $90.2 million. Adding humor to the mix, Kevin Hart’s “The Wedding Ringer” made an amusing guest from the faraway #2 place with $21 million. Lost “Paddington” found a family-friendly home at the cozy #3 spot with $19.2 million. After spending their first week at the numero uno spot, Liam Neeson and company were being “Taken (3)” straight to the #4 land with $14 million. “Selma” was educating the movie masses from the #5 zone with $8.3 million.
Wild times were experienced this weekend at the movies, with a former killing machine telling the biggest story. Proving there was something for everyone, a bit of wit was blended into the movie mix, while animation, action and activism also found a profitable place to tell their timeless tale.
