Box office: “American Sniper” now hovers over $250 million as it kicks in $32 million this weekend. It broke a Super Bowl weekend box office record (previously held by a Miley Cyrus-Hannah Montana concert movie). Moreover, “Sniper” is the whole box office story, defying gravity and all other forces. This is Warner Bros’ reason to cheer as it braces for “Jupiter Descending.”
All the new movies are dreck that no one wanted to release in the first place, and no one went to see. All of them will be on planes, in DVD bins, and free on some digital service quickly enough.
And yes, the “mort” in “Mortdecai” continues. Waiting for final numbers. Keep refreshing.
