‘American Sniper’ Tops Box Office for Second Week

“American Sniper” is still owning the box office.

For the second week, the sharpshooter drama is leading the box office charts with $64M in tickets for a grand total of $200.1M.

“We’ve never quite seen anything like this at this (typically quiet) time of year, said Paul Dergarabedian of the box-office tracker Rentrak.

The movie is up for six Oscars, including one nomination for Bradley Cooper for best actor in the role of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

Michael Moore has criticized the movie, saying that snipers are not heroes because they kill from long distances.

Following in a distant second at the box office is Jenifer Lopez’s thriller “The Boy Next Door” with $15M in sales.
