The numbers agree: if you’re just looking at the box office numbers, you’re not looking closely enough.
Sure, they do indicate that Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens once again won the weekend. It faced stiff competition from second place finisher The Revenant, which fell $3 million short of toppling the reigning champ.
But did the new Star Wars win any Golden Globes? No, it did not. That signals a startling and dramatic fall from grace for the hit film. We imagine that The Revenant will claim the top spot next week, flanked by big Globes winners like Joy and Creed.
After all, Star Wars may have had a nice holiday run, but it’s time for the big boys to come out and play. See you later, nerds.
