WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Exodus: Gods and Kings tops the chart, but with a mere 24.5 million.The holiday season gives the Ridley Scott epic a shot at recouping its 140 million budget statside, leaving overseas markets to provide the additional 280 million it needs to reach profitability in theaters. But overall bad reviews and a B- Cinemascore suggest that may not happen, particularly with another Hobbit arriving this Wednesday, and another Night at the Museum coming Friday.  Ouch.  Mockingjay likely benefitted from the Exodus thud, as it dropped only 40 percent to place with another 13.2 million.  This Hunger Games still lads the prior installment, but is likely to profit to the tune of 400 million worldwide. The Penguins of Madagascar show with 7.3 million on a 33 percent drop; with 58.8 million domestic to date, and another 100 million overseas, this installment of the franchise seems unlikely to profit in theaters.  Top Five debuts in the fourth slot with 7.2 million against a reported 10-12.5 million budget, which means this one may well profit through the holiday season.  Beg Hero 6 rounds out the Top 5 with 6.1 million on a leggy 24 percent drop, continuing a slow rollout overseas that has earned 70 million to date.
