This weekend, the competition was literally blown away by Roland Emmerich‘s latest flick, 2012. The movie brought in an estimated 65 million dollars at the box office, coming in at number one over last week’s champ, A Christmas Carol. The Disney film came in second with just over 22 million dollars, which isn’t a far drop from it’s debut. But something tells me that movie could have brought in a lot more money if it was actually released around a holiday.
On a side note, the indie features The Men Who Stare at Goats and Precious are managing to stay strong with the 3rd and 4th spots on the box office chart. At his point in his career, can George Clooney ever go wrong?
