This weekend, there are three new releases trying to overtake The Fate Of The Furious. Although, really only one has the potential. The Circle, starring Emma Watson and Tom Hanks is the only one getting enough of a screen count … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Can Emma Watson Beat Vin Diesel?
The Fate Of The Furious has dropped 63% in week two, a bit harder than I predicted (given the total lack of competition) but it’s not out of character for the franchise. It will easily pass 200M, but with the … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Furious’ Slows Quickly, But New Releases Are No Match
How many people will see The Fate Of The Furious this weekend? Well… a lot. This sequel doesn’t quite have the heat that Furious 7 had, which led to its 147M opening weekend. That was boosted by a nostalgia trip … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘The Fate’ Of Easter Weekend
It’s pretty likely that the top three movies this weekend will be family films. That’s a lot of audience splitting in preparation for The Fate Of The Furious. I’m betting that the arrival of Smurfs will cut into both Boss … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Smurfs’ Adds To The Crowded Marketplace
Now that we’re on April 1st, we can pretty much look back on our January releases and figure out what actually was a hit, and what flopped. Most of these films are no longer in theatres, Some are still making … Continue reading January Releases: How’d They Do?
I totally thought that Boss Baby was going to be another Mr Peabody and Sherman. It had all the makings. It was another Dreamworks animated film opening in March. Boss Baby has a rather disappointing Rotten Tomatoes score (48%) which … Continue reading Friday Box Office: I Was Wrong About ‘Boss Baby’
Two new releases enter this weekend, and I think both will be slightly disappointing. I was waiting for the Rotten Tomatoes scores to start coming in for Ghost In The Shell, and it is barely fresh. I think it will … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Ghost’ ‘Baby’ Can’t Defeat ‘Beast’
We are in a very crowded box office right now. We already have four films that are performing well, with Beauty and the Beast, Kong Skull Island, Logan, and Get Out. Now we’re looking at adding Life, Power Rangers, and … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Three New Films Can’t Stop The ‘Beast’
We’re headed into spring break time, with many schools being let out, or already out for Spring Break. This is going to start affecting movie attendance, as parents try and find things for their kids to do. Luckily, there are … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: It’s a Tale As Old As Time
The final Wolverine film opens this weekend, which will mean that the top two films at the box office are both rated R films. That seems unusual, sure. Is Logan another Deadpool? That’s a little unlikely. Deadpool was its own … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Logan’ Set To Dissect Competition
Mind you, this is a horror film that STILL has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes the day before it begins its Thursday evening showings. 30 reviews counted so far, all Fresh. Get Out is definitely a super buzzy horror film, … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: How High Will ‘Get Out’ Go?
Yes, I believe that the Ice Cube/Charlie Day comedy Fist Fight is going to outgross Matt Damon’s action The Great Wall. Interestingly, The Great Wall has already made 224M overseas (170M of that being from China alone). That doesn’t mean … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Fist Fight’ Will Climb A ‘Great Wall’
LEGO Batman didn’t quite hit the 60M many were expecting, but 54.5M total is good. Fifty Shades of Darker did much better than expected, and somehow managed a B+ cinemascore, which is up from the C+ the original received. I … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Lego’, ‘Shades’, ‘Wick’ all impress
Even though it might be the top destination choice for Valentine’s Day, Fifty Shades Darker is not expected to win this weekend. That could be a surprise, considering the original set the record (then) for biggest February opener, which would … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Fifty Shades’ Of ‘Batman’ and ‘John Wick’
Here’s the thing. Split has been doing really well. It opened above expectations, and it only dropped 35% last weekend. It’s on track to be the first 100M release of 2017, possibly as early as this weekend (but more likely … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Is ‘Rings’ A Hit?
