Big win for "Big Hero 6"

Writer: Florey DM



"Big Hero 6" tops Malaysia and Singapore box office for last weekend but lost to
"Dumb and Dumber To" in U.S.

18 Nov – Walt Disney's "Big Hero 6" gets its big win this week as it debuts first at the Malaysia and Singapore weekend box office but slipped to second place in the U.S., as "Dumb and Dumber To" snagged the top spot for the 13 to 16 November 2014 weekend.

The long-awaited sequel to 1994's "Dumb and Dumber" opened last weekend in North America grossing over USD 36.1 million, pushing last week's heroes of "Big Hero 6" down to the second place with its collection of USD 34.6 million.

Christopher Nolan's sci-fi "Interstellar" maintains its stellar spot in the top three by placing third, collecting a total of USD28.3 million over the weekend in North America.

"Big Hero 6" might have gone down a rung in the U.S. but it managed to place first in its opening weekend in Malaysia. Last week's first place, "Interstellar", moves down a notch to second, while third place is nabbed by yet another newcomer, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart 2".


The "Dumb" duo conquered the U.S. weekend box office collection and placed third in
Singapore while Malaysia awaits the film's release.

Singapore's first and second spots in its weekend box office chart mirror Malaysia's as "Big Hero 6" also debuts at first place while "Interstellar" takes second. Meanwhile, "Dumb and Dumber To" opened at third place.

Also opening in Malaysia last week; "Spirits of the Evil", "Horns", "Jessabelle", "The Drop", "MTB: Misi Tawan Baby", "Victory", "Kill Dil" and "Thirudan Police".

Other new movies that opened in Singapore last week are "Kill Dil", "Thirudan Police", "Vilasam", "Wayang Boy", "Kill the Messenger", "Jessabelle" and "Don't Go Breaking My Heart 2".
