Coming off a very surprising opening, American Sniper reinforced its status as a box office heavyweight by scoring one of the biggest second weekends ever.With over $200 million in the bank already, Sniper is now on track to be the highest-grossing movie from 2014 (it opened in New York and Los Angeles on Christmas Day). Among the new releases, Jennifer Lopez's The Boy Next Door got off to a decent start, while Mortdecai and Strange Magic were dead on arrival.Expanding to 3,705 locations*the widest release ever for an R-rated movie*American Sniper added an estimated $64 million this weekend. That ranks eighth all-time among second weekends, ahead of movies like The Dark Knight Rises, The Hunger Games and The Passion of the Christ.That $64 million tally is off just 28 percent from the movie's opening frame, which is the best second weekend hold ever for a movie that opened above $80 million. »

American Sniper continued its sensational box office run, dropping a mild 28% on its sophomore weekend to earn an estimated $64.4 million and fending off competition from a trio of new releases. The R-rated Oscar nominee is clearly benefitting from exceptional word-of-mouth and buzz. While the opening last week was incredible, its small drop this week was even more impressive, indicating that the film stands a good chance at being the #1 highest-grossing film of the year in North America. (Who would have thought that halfway through 2014? Nobody. And, technically, due to its platform run beginning on Christmas Day, the film is a 2014 release.)
The Bradley Cooper-led drama also amassed the eighth-largest second weekend of all-time. All seven films that had bigger second weekend takes surpassed the $400 million mark. While that is not a guarantee for Sniper, it should handily surpass the final grosses of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and Guardians of the Galaxy, »

Final Update, Sunday Am: Warner Bros. is reporting that American Sniper will raise its domestic cume to $200.1M through Sunday after a massive $64.4M weekened at 3,705 theaters, the third-highest weekend ever in January, behind Sniper’s opening last weekend, and Avatar’s third Fss of $68.5M.
That figure, should it hold into tomorrow, marks a mere 28-percent slip – the best second-week hold for a wide release ever for a film that debuted with more than $85M. Previous to this, the best big debuts to hold an audience were 2004’s Shrek 2 (down 33 percent in its second frame) and 2002’s Spider-Man (down 38 percent). American Sniper is marching toward $300M, a mark only six Warner Bros. films have passed.
“Many exhibitors are hearing from their theater managers that the infrequent moviegoers who go only two to three times a year, are coming out to see this movie,” said Warner Bros. distribution chief Dan Fellman. »

Three new wide releases hit theaters this weekend, though none of them have the slightest chance of taking first place away from American Sniper.Among those new releases, The Boy Next Door seems to have the edge; the Jennifer Lopez thriller should wind up in second place with at least $15 million. Meanwhile, Mortdecai and Strange Magic will likely wind up below $10 million.American Sniper opened to a stunning $89.3 million last weekend, which ranks second all-time for an R-rated movie behind The Matrix Reloaded. It has also held well through the week*its $7.55 million Wednesday haul is very impressive*which is usually a good indicator of a strong second weekend.To help meet the high demand, American Sniper is expanding to 3,705 theaters, which is the widest release ever for an R-rated movie. Based on the mid-week performance, it's likely that the movie earns at least $50 million this weekend. If it gets closer to $60 million, »
