Box Office Top 3: 'Star Wars' Gets Its First Real Challenge
"Star Wars" is still on top at the box office, but it saw its first real taste of competition with the debut of "The Revenant."By Steven Sparkman | January 10, 2016
For the first time since it debuted, "Star Wars" actually had a close contender at the domestic box office. I know, hard to believe.
"The Force Awakens" brought in an estimated $41.6 million, but the real story was overseas.
That's because the film finally debuted in China, where "Star Wars" isn't the cultural powerhouse it is elsewhere around the globe. Early reports say it had a decent opening of around $53 million in its first two days. (Video via CCTV)
