Weekend Box Office: Johnny Depp's Mustache Fails To Woo Audiences

January 26, 2015


Well, looks like it's going to take some real work for me to popularize my catchphrase, "That's as hot as the David Koepp action-comedy Mortdecai, starring Johnny Depp!" The only film brave enough to wipe off Depp's pancake makeup, so that the mustache spirit gum would stick, opened at a miserable $4.1 million--well behind even such rival, awful-looking new releases as George Lucas's "Epic" as a Jukebox Musical and J.Lofetime Original Movie. American Sniper, meanwhile, continue to kill it (with moral ambiguity) with one of the biggest second weekends ever. Since it opened in a few locations before the new year, it's now on track to beat out Mockingjay, Part 1 to become the biggest domestic release of 2014.

Here's the weekend box office:

1. American Sniper - $64.4 million

2. The Boy Next Door - $15 million

3. Paddington - $12.4 million

4. The Wedding Ringer - $11.6 million

5. Taken 3 - $7.6 million
