The Revenant climbed to the top of the box office in North America this weekend.
New York, Washington and the rest of the eastern US may have been blasted from Friday into Sunday with a blizzard but that didn’t stop The Revenant, boosted by 12 Oscar nominations and feted at the Golden Globes, taking box office top spot.
The film took in $16 million to reach the box office summit for the first time in its fifth week in cinemas. That was down 50 percent on last weekend because of the blizzard but all the movies in the box office standings suffered similar plunges.
Second was Star Wars: The Force Awakens and in third place was the comedy Ride Along 2, which fell from top spot last week, check out the full list at Box Office Mojo.
