It looks like Taken 3 used up all of Selma's box office mojo, at least for now--an expansion to wide release netted the civil rights drama only $11.2 million, putting it in a distant second place. With its positive buzz and awards season working its way up to an Oscar frenzy, though, Selma should have pretty good legs in the coming weeks. It already won one Golden Globe last night (Best Original Song) and is expected to clean up when Oscar nominations are announced on Thursday.
Rounding out the top five were holdovers Into the Woods (weekend gross: $9.7 million; total gross: $105.2 million), last week's (and the week before that, and the week before that) number one The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (weekend gross: $9.4 million; total gross: $236.5 million) and Unbroken (weekend gross: $8.3 million; total gross: $101.6 million).
In terms of limited releases, the only one to make waves was Dominik Graf's period piece Beloved Sisters, which earned $25,000 on nine screens.
