James wrote:

"With STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS already breaking every record in the universe this weekend, its obviously taking first spot by a clear million miles. As for the rest of the Top 5, I believe it will largely stay the same with the only real difference being CHRISTMAS WITH THE COOPERS and BRIDGE OF SPIES dropping down and being replaced by the new comedy SISTERS starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler."

MARION KOOB
[Cinema Editor]

1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
2. The Good Dinosaur
3. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2
4. Spectre
5. Bridge of Spies

Marion wrote:

"With record numbers coming in, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS as a first is a given - and I suspect for a good number of weeks. With MOCKINGJAY PART 2 and THE GOOD DINOSAUR so close last week-end, I think the latter will overtake the former (MOCKINGJAY PART 2 and STAR WARS audiences overlap; the holidays have started, which will see more families in cinemas to see THE GOOD DINOSAUR). I'm speculating that SPECTRE will hang on for a little while longer, with a wild guess that SISTERS will overtake CHRISTMAS WITH THE COOPERS but not BRIDGE OF SPIES."
