‘Hidden Figures’ is spending another week at No. 1.
Sunday estimates say the film sold $20.5 million in tickets in North American theaters over the MLK holiday weekend. Including Monday projections, the film is estimated to pull in $25.3 million.
“Hidden Figures” faced stiff competition from Lionsgate’s “La La Land,” riding high after sweeping the Golden Globe Awards, and STX’s “The Bye Bye Man,” which earned $14.5 million and $13.4 million, respectively. “La La Land” is widely expected to dominate the Oscar nominations. The musical about lovestruck Angelenos should finish the four-day weekend with another $17.5 million in domestic receipts, which would bring its stateside total to more than $77 million.
