‘1917’ Conquers ‘Star Wars’ At Box Office


Sam Mendes’ World War I epic 1917 conquered the box office battlefield with a stellar $36.5 million weekend, one of the best nationwide starts ever for the month of January and well ahead of projections. The victory was fueled by the movie’s top Golden Globe wins on Jan. 5 for best motion picture for a drama and best director, along with word of mouth generated by the film’s limited run in select theaters.

The top 12 films of the weekend, as of Sunday, January 12th, are as follows:
