Star Wars: The Force Awakens vs The Big Short vs Concussion vs Joy vs Daddy's Home vs Point Break

In other words, a slew of new movies hit theaters this crowded Christmas Weekend, all vying for that Star Wars pie.


The Big Short
Hit Factor: Awards season buzz, great cast.
Flop Factor: Might be too much of a economic drama than most people want for the Holidays.



Joy
Hit Factor: The same team that brought us American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook.
Flop Factor: While reviews have been good, they aren't as good as those movies listed.



Concussion
Hit Factor: Will Smith has been getting a lot of buzz for his role in this film.
Flop Factor: Will Will Smith fans turn out for him in a serious role?



Daddy's Home
Hit Factor: Will Ferrell and Mark Walhberg's film The Other Guys was pretty funny.
Flop Factor: The director of that film went on to do The Big Short instead.



Point Break
Hit Factor: Cool Stunts
Flop Factor: Well, where to start, a seriously crowded box office, for one.

Daddy's Home
The Big Short
Joy
Concussion
Weekend Gross (millions)
