Christian Bale got scorched without his Batsuit.
Granted, the week following Thanksgiving is usually a slow one at the box office and ratings for the Relativity film weren't great.
However, only the "Hunger Games" sequel and Disney's "Frozen" managed to earn more than $6 million.
Before the onslaught of December film releases, this weekend was pretty slow overall with Morgan Freeman's "Hangover"-esque "Last Vegas" out of the top 10 after six weeks and "Black Nativity" dropping out in week two.
Here are this week's winners and losers in Hollywood:
10. Matthew McConaughey's "Dallas Buyers Club" moved up two spots to make it into the top ten with $1.5 million. The Focus Features film also starring Jennifer Garner which has been out for six weeks has made $12 million to date.
9. Weinstein film "Philomena" starring Judi Dench drops one spot this week earning $2.8 million. The film, about a mother forced to give up her child, is making a majority of its $24 million overseas ($16 million).
8. After a month in theaters, "The Best Man Holiday" finally falls four notches with $2.67 million. The Universal sequel which cost an estimated $17 million to produce has brought in a big $67.6 million.
7. Fox's adaptation of "The Book Thief" starring Geoffrey Rush added another $2.7 million to its $12 million haul.
6. Jason Statham's movie "Homefront" dropped one place from last week with $3.4 million. The film, which cost an estimated $22 million to make has made $15.3 million worldwide.
5. Surprisingly, Disney's "Delivery Man" with Vince Vaughn actually moved up one spot since last week with $3.8 million. The film's premise about a sperm donor having upwards of 500 children is nothing short of absurd. Yet, it has managed to come back from a poor opening weekend ($7.9 million) to make $26 million worldwide — on par with the film's production budget.
4. "Thor: The Dark World" continues to ride the top of the box office with another $4.7 million. The Chris Hemsworth "Avengers" film passed a milestone last week crossing $600 million worldwide at the box office.
3. Christian Bale's "Out of the Furnace" disappointed with $5.3 million. The film, also starring Zoe Saldana, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, and Woody Harrelson cost an estimated $22 million. Bale's not as big of a draw when he's not in the Batsuit. Not that this film was expected to make tens of millions upon opening. To be honest, it was easy for this film to get lost among the myriad of films coming out in the coming weeks. Bale will be back with Oscar film "American Hustle" at the end of the month.
2. After two weeks ruling theaters, the girl on fire gets iced. "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" made $27 million in its third week. In that time, the Jennifer Lawrence-fueled franchise has made a huge $673 million worldwide. Worth noting that the film is performing as well overseas as it is at home — right down the middle in fact ($336 million). It took until the first film's fourth week to hit that point.
1. "Frozen" holds strong for a second week with $31.6 million. Overall, the film has made $190.2 million ($134 million domestic). That's way ahead of 2010's "Tangled" second weekend ($21.6 million / $96 million domestic), and slightly less than "Wreck-It Ralph" ($33 million). However, "Wreck-It Ralph" hadn't crossed $100 million domestic at this point.
