The much-acclaimed new film “The Wolf of Wall Street” scored a healthy $13.4 million over the weekend giving it a total of $63.3 million for two weeks in exhibition, which is a strong number considering the film has a running time of 2 two hours and 59 minutes which limits the number of times it can be shown in a day.

American Hustle

In fifth place was “American Hustle” which took in $13.2 million. For more on the weekend movie box office numbers, click on the link below.
