Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to top the weekend box office, but new release ‘Daddy’s Home’ will not disappoint.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ has already broken about every box office record ever. The film has been a success with both fans and critics alike.

So it comes as no surprise the latest addition to the Star Wars universe is expected to remain on top. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to keep on dominating the holiday weekend box office. The Force Awakens is headed for another colossal weekend as it tops the box office. 

Still some new wide releases are vying for a spot in the box office top five. The new releases include Daddy’s Home, Point Break, Joy, and Concussion.

According to Rentrak, the coming weekend will be a busy holiday weekend at the box office. It is possible that over the next week 2015 would eventually earn $11 billion at the box office. It would make 2015 the biggest box office year of all time.

Many are predicting the second The Force Awakens’ weekend will bring in around $150 million. The numbers mean The Force Awakens is most likely headed for another record-breaking weekend.

So far The Force Awakens has made an estimated $325.4 million along with a global total of $689.4 million as of Tuesday, reported THR

Among the new releases, the most notable is the family comedy Daddy’s Home. According to analysts the comedy is expected to top the newcomers.

Daddy’s Home stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in the main roles. The film is expected to have a weekend ranging from $20 to $22 million. But the reviews have not been phenomenal and it will open in 3,200 locations.
