WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Star Wars:The Force Awakens threpeats atop the chart with 88.3MM, and will likely pass Avatar as the alltime domestic champ on Tuesday. Whether it can match that film's 2 Billion in overseas receipts remains to be seen. Daddy's Home places with 29MM, with a 93.6MM total against a reported 50MM production budget. The expansion of Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight shows with 16.2MM, and its 29.6MM to date is fine against a 40MM budget, though tracking more like the Kill Bill films than his biggest films, Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained. Sisters held on to the fourth slot with 12.6MM and is likely to be in the black from here on out. Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip rounded out the Top Five with 11.8MM on a leggy 11 percent drop. Below the fold, Joy and Concussion struggle, while The Big Short may go long during awards season.
