Mockingjay 2 Good Dinosaur The Martian

UPDATE, 4:15 PM PT: There's a lot this weekend that's reminiscent of last year's comparable frame, which again has a Hunger Games movie atop the heap, and a space sci-fi epic coming in at No. 2 across the globe. And yet, there are shifts to watch. The Martian seemed to have a strong China debut all but assured this weekend given the performance of recent comps, its own stellar run elsewhere and a plotline that puts the Chinese in nice light.

Focus Features' The Danish Girl had a robust beginning to its theatrical run during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, but it was The Weinstein Company's Carol that held the reins as the top per theater average champ.

In the wake of receiving her first Best Actress Oscar nomination for 2009's An Education, Carey Mulligan realized that she had the fortunate opportunity to choose roles. She easily could play a leading man's foil in any Hollywood blockbuster—in fact, she beat out a slew of actresses for the highly coveted role of Daisy Buchanan opposite Leonardo DiCaprio's Jay Gatsby in The Great Gatsby.

Will DiCaprio, Depp Or Smith Nab Best Actor Oscar Or Does Redmayne Take It Again? — Awardsline

Leonardo DiCaprio

Two years ago the Best Actor race was so crowded that such surefire contenders as Robert Redford (All Is Lost) and Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips) saw their hopes dashed right out of the gate when both were overlooked for even a nomination. Competition was lethal, as it has been for the past few years in this category. Unlike what is usually the case in the Best Actress race—though not this year—it seems there are just too many great male performances fighting for one of… Read
