Despite Mediocre Turnout, ‘Exodus’ Tops ‘Mockingjay’


With Christmas (and the swarm of major releases that come with it) looming in the immediate future, cineplexes across the country are collectively experiencing something of a calm before the storm.

Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings overcame much more than a 28% rating to win over the weekend box office. After three solid weeks of domination, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 has officially lost the steam that powered its success, which financially translates to a weekend pull of $13 million dollars. Top Five made its debut as well, placing right above Big Hero 6 and earning roughly $7 million.
