The Christmas comedy Bad Santa 2 comes in eighth again with $3.2 million. The sequel now stands at a measly $14.2 million.
Debuting in ninth is this weekend’s lone new wide release, Incarnate. The horror/thriller managed just $2.6 million in its first three days, a byproduct of a very minimal marketing campaign and no real star power. The lack of awareness meant it was overshadowed by all the movies still playing, so it didn’t have much of a chance to make its way up the charts. If there is a silver lining, it’s that the production budget was just $5 million, so there’s an outside chance it can still turn a minor profit.
Capping off the top ten is Almost Christmas. The family ensemble comedy made $2.5 million in its fourth weekend to raise its domestic total to $38.1 million.
