Top Grossing Christmas Day Openings Of All Time
Christmas Day is well known for its family gatherings, turkeys and presents, but it has also seen its fair share of new movies opening as well. This year 3 new movies are opening on the 25th, two of which are considered to be Oscar contenders. Django Unchained, Les Miserables and Parental Guidance all open on Christmas Day, and box offices could see a bit of a boost because of it. We thought it would be interesting to take a look back at which movies have made the most money by opening on the holiday.
