Much like "Doctor Strange" and "Trolls", this sci-fi thriller also benefited from a booming box office this weekend. The adult science fiction drama made $24 million and debuted in third place. Box office predictions for Amy Adams' new flick were only around $18 million. Comedy Almost Christmas pulled in $15 million against a $17 million for a profitable but quiet fourth place debut. The best comparison has to be Thor: The Dark World, as that is the only Marvel film released in November.
Rounding out the top five is Mel Gibson's WWII drama "Hacksaw Ridge". Its worldwide roll-out is listed as being well underway, but numbers have yet to be reported. But toward the end of the year, when audiences have come to learn that they should start paying attention to the multiplex again, the studios still manage to produce a few riskier and more adventurous movies, with the upside of awards season enough to justify their existence. Global numbers have yet to come in.
