'American Sniper' to Break Records with $105 Million Opening!

American Sniper is set to make a whopping $105.2 million over the Martin Luther King Jr. weekend for the biggest winter opening of all time!

According to THR, the Clint Eastwood-directed war drama starring Bradley Cooper expanded nationwide after first debuting on Christmas Day in four theaters.

Coming at No. 2 is expected to be Kevin Hart‘s new comedy The Wedding Ringer, also starring Josh Gad and Kaley Cuoco, which should have a four-day debut of $25 million.

Not far behind will be Paddington, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Bonneville, which may even jump into the second spot with a $25 million opening.

Rounding out the top five should be Taken 3 and Selma, which will bring in $14 million and $9.8 million, respectively.

Meanwhile, Chris Hemsworth‘s Blackhat fell below expectations, coming in at No. 11 for the four-day weekend with $4.6 million.

    $$41 million is bad..in what world? some films open to $20 and that’s considered great. Chris Hemsworth opened at $4 mill.

  • Violet

    You misunderstood. Kevin Hart opened much lower than the same time last year. 41 million vs the 25 million brought in this weekend.

  • Jilli

    Won’t see it. I don’t watch any war movies, even the old ones that really don’t show much violence. Just not my type of movie.

    Thanks, haven’t been to the movies in awhile (too many remakes and action and comic movies) but I’ll check this one out. Love just about anything Clint directs.
