Angelina Jolie's 'Unbroken' Topping Newcomers on Christmas!

Angelina Jolie's 'Unbroken' Topping Newcomers on Christmas!

Angelina Jolie‘s holiday season is about to get a whole lot merrier – her new movie Unbroken is doing better business than industry experts originally predicted!

The film reportedly is on track to gross $9 to $11 million for Christmas day and it is likely to cross $30 million for the full four day weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Into the Woods is expected to finish Thursday with $9 million and it is in a tight race with Unbroken to be the top newcomer for the weekend. Family films generally don’t do big business on Christmas day, so the musical’s total could rise over the next few days.

The other two big newcomers are The Gambler and Big Eyes, which are expected to make $3-4 million and $1.5 million for the day, respectively.

The Interview, which got a limited release in 300 theaters at the last minute, is on pace to earn $2 million for the full four day weekend. It is also available on demand, which will cannibalize some of the theater traffic.

Strong holdovers that will be big competition this weekend include The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Annie, and Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.

    Preach..buy tix even if you can’t make it!! Lol I’m serious!

  • CLINIQUA

    Cone on Angie!!! Kick some azz!!! Whoohoo!! :)

  • Tamsin Through

    JJ is predictably doing its mandatory paid job as the Camp Event’s official spokeschannel – so obviously JJ will be overhyping any number for the opening weekend to avoid presenting Unbroken as the fiasco that truly is. Wait until word of mouth kills it.

  • SunnyBae

    I was wondering how it’s doing because today I was lucky that I bought tickets -unbroken was sold out until later tonight. I wasn’t expecting it to be so crazy at the movies today. Merry Christmas !

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    Great job Angie. Screw the jealous trolls.

  • yolly

    I might buy tickets for Unbroken tomorrow and give it as gifts, after all,I already watch it today.Let’s support Angie,let’s kiss the trolls a…..s.

  • yolly

    I mean kick the trolls a…….s.Sorry.

  • yolly

    Hope,Unbroken will be on top of the box office.

  • bap

    I will watch it tomorrow again.

  • dalovelee

    I saw the movie and it was compelling. Full house, round of applause at the end from audience. Anyone who says this movie didn’t inspire them or leave an emotional impact has a heart of stone. But run to see this movie. Don’t let haters of AJ steer you away .

  • Love the JoliePitts

    Posted on the other thread and posting on this one also.

    Just returned from seeing UBROKEN!!!! Excellent! Excellent movie. Angelina is amazing. Jack is incredible and Miyavi….OMG what presence.

    The theatre was practically sold out and this was for the 1:25 p.m showing. The theatre clerk said Unbroken has been doing great since 11:30 am. So many sold out screens…..I am so glad I got in to one of the few remaining seats.

    Must see movie. Angelina put her heart into it. Louis’ family must be very pleased…

    God bless you beautiful Dame Angelina. Your heart is truly filled with love.

  • busted

    double downing.

    This is why we say it all the time. It is on Angie’s shoulders. When tweets are congratulating the Director of a film then you know she has a lot to do with the success. Just as if the film was not doing well then it would be on Angie too.

    so proud of her and so proud of the people embracing the film. Word of Mouth is going to help drive those numbers up.

    So wonderful for Angie.. she is not on the screen, and yet she is getting a lot of mentions.

  • Love the JoliePitts

    Forgot to say….Applause at end of the movie from the virtually full house audience.

    I can’t wait to see it again.

  • yolly

    Jack and Miami gives justice to their part. They are now known all over the world because of Angelina and Unbroken.

  • yolly

    Go out and see Unbroken.

  • julianne

    My husband and I have been waiting for several months to see this movie…so today, Dec, 25 we went to the theater to buy tickets and could not believed that all tickets from 12:15PM to 10PM showing were all sold out!

    Luckily, we were able to buy tickets for tomorrow’s showing…

  • Violet

    Angelina Jolie did a good job directing Unbroken. It may not get an Oscar but she’ll get there with her next go around in the directors chair.

  • julianne

    Yes, same with us…went to the theater earlier today hoping that we could buy tickets for the afternoon showing but all the tickets for the whole day were all sold out!

  • julianne

    Me too…would have been a good gift to see it on christmas day…but tickets were all sold out…

  • lucy

    Thanks, I was about to ask where are we posting, you read my mind. lol

  • julianne

    well who knows? It depends on the judges…if it is a good movie maybe it will have a chance…

  • Dame Angelina

    I’m taking a big group — we’re watching Unbroken on Dec.27th. I’m encouraging everyone I know too. Let’s all support the Dame!

  • villedeville

    I was disheartened when I read the review at Rope of Silicon (-D). I went to see the movie anyway this Christmas Day. I’m glad I did. I really can’t figure what some critics hated it so much and what they really want to see in this movie. It’s an inspiring movie, well directed and superbly acted.

  • dalovelee

    The final ending alone had me in tears..I believe Hollywood has an agenda…and the fact that she’s a beautiful woman they don’t want to give her credit for making a brilliant film.

  • Caribbean

    I do not give a f..what the critics say. I saw it today, great movie, I cried a couple of times. The end scene was particularly moving.

  • yolly

    The fact is, Unbroken is a well made movie.The ending is a good choice since Louis Zamperini didn’t get to see the whole movie but, I am sure,he and his family are proud that Angelina did a good job. Good job Angie. The critics can say anything but thank God, I was hoping Unbroken today,what a story to tell.

  • yolly

    I meant,went to see Unbroken.

  • dalovelee

    For some reason I believe the media wants the masses to believe she’s not a serious director and yet her film about an American WWll hero resonated and critics were being dismissive of her efforts. Her film is great and I would be curious to know from your group if no one walked away feeling like it was inspirational or gripping.

  • Guest

    These numbers aren’t accurate. It flopped.

  • Guest

    Why? It flopped.

  • Syn

    Yep, it’s sold out on 4 consecutive times on the theater I went to.

    OMG, how could Louie have survived the relentless assault on him physically and mentally. I would have gone insane! I really cried on the plank scene. That I think was the best acting scene for Miyavi and Jack. Angie really delivered on this great film. I strongly recommend everyone to watch it!

  • Tatiana

    I wonder if you are the same “guest” that hates AJ, i see it in all the blogs, may be envy? jealousy?. Get a life.

    We saw it today. Fabulous movie! Anybody that says otherwise must have seen another movie today.

    Reading the comments of people who have already seen Unbroken is truly overwhelming & remarkable. They are very passionate with their expressions, praising the movie. They don’t hold back.

    Now, Louis Z is smiling with happiness who’s up in heaven & so is AJ who’s recovering at home. AJ might be feeling good as well & saying to herself, “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED” that she’s able to do what she has to do, that is to get her friend’s message across to the public via her movie.

    I am happy for AJ & LZ.

    So, supporters, friends & even trolls, let us allow ourselves for self-reflection by filling our hearts with love & inspiration that will surely last for a lifetime.

    AJ’s good Karma is rewarding her because she rises above all adversities. She is living the words of LZ aside from the fact that she’s always this way. Never gives up. She is “beaten” physically (chicken pox; being tired perhaps) & emotionally by some people BUT she is facing them with grace, humility & physically. Her spirit is always high. Never retaliates. Her good character is always admirable. For her, let her work speaks for itself.

    Now, the public is “speaking for her” through the support she is getting from them. The public really want to see her finished product. The heavily promoted Unbroken is reaping its success.

    You know, that movie is on God’s side because it propagates the very values that He wants to be instilled on humanity …to each one of us. Hence, may the good shall triumph.

    mas voces que no entienden como UNBROKEN esta fuera de lo GG

    .I would like to believe WORD OF MOUTH (of the public & honest people & NOT the paid critics) will make UNBROKEN kill at the box office. Just like Maleficent, some are saying that it will not do well even before it was shown & look what happened, it gained 757m dollars world wide.
