Exodus Gods and Kings Rules: Weekend Box Office Report

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Christian Bale and Ridley Scott went biblical on movie audiences over the weekend as Exodus: Gods and Kings ruled the weekend box office. The story of Moses banked $24.5 million in its first weekend of release, easily wrestling the top spot away from the box office champ from the last three weeks, Mockingjay Part 1.

Mockingjay Part 1 added another $13.2 million to bring its total to $277.8 million. We suspect the first part of the two-part The Hunger Games finale will have no problem topping $300 million before it’s done.

Those adorable Penguins of Madagascar continued their impressive and steady run as the nation’s top family film. The Madagascar spin-off banked $7.3 million to take its cume to $58.8 million. Right behind it was the debut of Chris Rock’s Top Five. The film that Rock stars in, wrote and directed made a decent debut in the fourth spot (in the Top Five!) with $7.2 million.

Closing out the top five was the Disney instant classic, Big Hero 6. The Marvel comic book come to life scored $6.1 million for a grand total of $185.3 million.
