Box Office Mojo reports that Lincoln is doing better than expected at the box office on its expansion to 1,175 theaters. Argo is edging slowly towards $100 million, currently at $92 and yes, Twilight Breaking Dawn broke a record for the franchise. All in all, a great season at the multiplex. Flight doing extremely well at $61 million.
Lincoln is especially impressive, given that it’s not dumbed down for maximum profits at the box office but instead is keeping the fire burning through great reviews and strong word of mouth.
Silver Linings Playbook opened in 16 theaters and made $458,000 and Anna Karenina also opened in 16 locations and made $315,000.
On the 21st, Silver Linings Playbook goes wider and Life of Pi opens.
