WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 tops the chart again with 11.3 MM, while the weekend's sole big new release, In the Heart of the Sea, placed with 11MM (so there's an outside chance these will reverse once the estimates become real numbers). The moral of the story is: Don't open your movie the weekend before a new Star Wars episode (see also Jurassic World, Iron Man 3, The Avengers and The Dark Knight). Then again, tthe reviews for In the Heart of the Sea weren't all that hot for what was hoped to be awards bait as well s a commercial success. Normally, a B+ Cinemascore would be good word of mought, but Star Wars is going to be joined by many other choices for counter-programming.Moreover, the overseas erceipts were equally tepid, which mean Ron Howard & Chris hemsworth may end up with movie losing tens of millions at the box office.  The Good Dinosaur shows with 10.5MM,which means it continues to lag Pixar's other recent releases andhas yet to recop its reported 167MM production budget worldwide.  Creed remains in the fourth slot with 10.1MM on a leggy 33 percent drop. Awards nominations may keep it leggy into 2016.  Krampus rounds out the Top Five with 8MM and will likely profit on the big screen, albeit not on the Gremlins scale for which the studio hoped.
