The numbers agree: Star Wars may have topped another weekend, but history will name Daddy’s Home as the real winner this holiday season!
Daddy’s Home grossed $38.8 million, good enough for second at the box office, and while that’s $115 million less than The Force Awakens, this further proves that Mark Wahlberg is both hilarious and still a major box office draw. Can John Boyega say that? Probably not (we haven’t seen Star Wars yet, but feel safe in assuming this).
Joy came in third with $17.5 million. Don’t fret, DeNiro fans: the actor’s next film, Dirty Grandpa, could be the one to finally unseat Star Wars in January.
Of course, Daddy’s Home has a good chance of doing that as well. We’re anticipating something akin to Titanic where the movie hovers at the top of the box office rankings for months.
