(Updated Monday, Jan. 18, with four-day estimates.)
Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ four-week run at the top of the box office has finally ended.
Ride Along 2 took first place over Martin Luther King weekend, debuting to $35.3 million over three days and an estimated $41.6 million over four. That was enough to dethrone The Force Awakens, which placed third and only pulled in $26.4 million over three days and $32.6 million over four.
Donald Trump wants to treat Iowans to a free night at the movies. The Republican candidate for president, who trails Sen. Ted Cruz in recent Iowa polls, has rented a movie theater in Urbandale, Iowa, to screen 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. The theater and tickets have been paid for by the billionaire; supporters just need to RSVP.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ record-breaking run is coming to an end.
After The Force Awakens spent four weekends at No. 1, there’s a new box office contender in town, and Ride Along 2 is expected to top the charts this holiday weekend. Back in 2014, the first Ride Along set a record for the biggest Martin Luther King weekend opening ever, earning $48.6 million over four days. That record stood until last year, when American Sniper more than doubled it, earning $107.2 million when it expanded to wide release.
Rarely do films based on true stories hit theaters without hailstorms of fact-checking and cries of historical revisionism. The filmmakers and their supporters typically hit back with the argument that there was never a mandate for complete factual accuracy—that would be a documentary—and as long as the spirit of those portrayed on screen is accurately captured and viewers are not grossly misled, there’s no real harm being done. It’s just a movie.
In that sense, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is unique, because it’s not just a movie.
Michael Bay is best known for his Transformers blockbusters, but his next film examines the real-life story of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The new international trailer for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi focuses on the family man played by John Krasinski — one of the six Americans who fought to defend the diplomatic compound against terrorists.
Michael Bay’s latest directorial effort takes a look at the American compound attacked by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012. This new featurette for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi includes interviews with three of the six American soldiers portrayed in the film: Mark “Oz” Geist, Kris “Tanto” Paronto, and John “Tig” Tiegen.
Based on Mitchell Zukoff’s book 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi, the film focuses on the six soldiers who responded to the attack.
Two new trailers are out for Michael Bay’s movie based on the infamous 2012 terror attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.
The new red band and green band trailers for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi are heavy on explosive action, but also offer a closer look at John Krasinski’s character — a soldier named Jack. “I haven’t thought about my family once tonight,” he says in the trailer. “Thinking about them now… out here in the middle of all this.”
