Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: January 25th, 2014 It was a timid box office weekend for the new releases, while Clint Eastwood’s latest continues to dominate In at number 1 is American Sniper with $64.3 million, which brings its domestic total up to $200 million.

The film is pretty much dead now, but every once in a while something rises to the surface giving us a glimpse at what could have been. The film went through a couple directors, but the most prominent was Pirates of the Caribbean’s Gore Verbinski. That eventually fell apart though because Verbinski was unwilling to make the movie PG-13.
