Blizzard Nor Black Bear Could Stop Oscar Nom The Revenant

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — There may have been a blizzard but 20th Century Fox is not complaining about their top spot at the box office. After coming in third last week, The Revenant rose to number one with $16 million in ticket sales this weekend putting it ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Ride Along 2.

Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Rentrak, said the storm had an effect, but cautioned against overestimating its impact.


"It probably altered the box office 10 or 12 percent overall," Dergarabedian said. "This was never predestined to be an earth-shattering box office weekend, anyway."


The top 10 domestic box office:


1. "The Revenant," $16 million
3. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," $14.3 million
3. "Ride Along 2," $13 million
4. "Dirty Grandpa," $11.5 million
5. "The Boy," $11.3 million
6. "The 5th Wave," $10.7 million
7. "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi," $9.8 million
8. "Daddy's Home," $5.3 million
9. "Norm of the North," $4.1 million
10. "The Big Short," $3.5 million
