Coming in at No. 2 is “Half Brothers” with $490,000, followed by “Elf” at No. 3 with $400,000, “Freaky” at No. 4 with $315,000 and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” at No. 5 with $268,000.

Rounding out the top tier are “The War with Grandpa” at No. 6 with $267,000, “The Polar Express” at No. 7 with $245,000, “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” at No. 8 with $239,000, “All My Life” at No. 9 with $215,000, and “Wonder Woman” at No. 10 with $189,000.

Several entries in the Top 10 are re-releases of older films, which are getting new lives during the coronavirus pandemic as few new movies have been opening in theaters this past year.

Many films have been postponed until next year or have bypassed theaters altogether in favor of premieres on streaming services or pay-per-view platforms.
