Box office: Exodus: Gods and Kings slips some more, but is now the third-highest-grossing Bible movie worldwide January 11, 2015

exodus-DF-02915_2917RExodus: Gods and Kings continued to fall down the charts in its fifth week at the North American box office.

Ridley Scott’s Moses movie earned just $1.1 million this week, which represents a drop of 71.2% since last week. That was easily the steepest slide in the Top 20, and the film’s per-screen average of $963 was also the lowest in the Top 20 this week.

Exodus has seen its audience shrink every week since its underwhelming debut last month — even over the holidays, when most films get a box-office boost. Despite opening at #1 less than a month ago, this week it landed at #18.

The film’s domestic total now stands at $63.7 million, and it has earned another $167.1 million overseas, for a worldwide total of $230.8 million.

That makes it the third-highest-grossing Bible movie of the past few decades both overseas and worldwide, behind The Passion of the Christ and Noah; in North America, it is also behind the animated Moses movie The Prince of Egypt.

Here is how the film ranks in the filmographies of its director and two co-stars:
