The movie industry had a good weekend, with sales up 26 percent over the same weekend period last year, an analyst said Sunday.

The only big release of the week, a horror-comedy called “Krampus,” opened just a hair behind “The Hunger Games” trilogy-ender.

“Mockingjay, Part 2” is in its third week at the number one spot, with $18.6 million in estimated sales in the U.S. and Canada. “Krampus” opened at $16 million.

The “Rocky” sequel “Creed” was just a hair behind, in third place with a $15.5 million gate.

Rounding out the 10 most-popular movies this week, as estimated by the studios, were “The Good Dinosaur” ($15.5 million), “Spectre” ($5.4 million), “The Night Before” ($4.9 million), “The Peanuts Movie” ($3.5 million), ‘Spotlight”‘ ($2.9 million), “Brooklyn” ($2.4 million) and “Secret In Their Eyes” ($2 million).
