Not all kids are back in school, but for some, this is their last weekend of freedom. So, we’ll call this the final weekend of summer. The next two weekends the studios have basically thrown in the towel, and we … Continue reading Summer’s Over: Predicting Fall’s Biggest Hits
Two new wide releases battle for prominence at the box office. One of them is getting rave reviews (Logan Lucky) and the other not so much (The Hitman’s Bodyguard). However, I’m reminded of a few years back at about this … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Logan’ And ‘Bodyguard’ Battle For #1
Barring some absurd exodus of moviegoers from theatres, Annabelle Creation is very much on track to win this weekend. The first Annabelle opened to 37M and finished with 82M domestically. It was pretty despised by critics with a 29%. Much … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Annabelle’ Easily Will Win The Weekend, Spidey To Cross 300M
Basically on the first (or second, if I’m lazy) of every month, I take a look back three months at the films that have basically already made their lasting impact on the box office. These films have typically already fallen … Continue reading May Releases: How’d They Do?
Of the three new wide releases this weekend, two of them aren’t doing well with critics. The Dark Tower is currently at 18%, while Kidnap is a bit higher at 42%. To be fair, The Dark Tower has more than … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Will Poor Reviews Topple ‘The Dark Tower’ and Return ‘Kidnap’?
Chris Nolan’s Dunkirk is having to face off against a talking Poop emoji in The Emoji Movie. If that isn’t metaphorical, I don’t know what is. The apparent battle is because Dunkirk and The Emoji Movie are tracking at about … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Christopher Nolan Vs Poop
I really tried for that pun. It’s a bit of a stretch, I realize. Here’s the thing. Three new releases. All three have at least decent reviews, with two of them above 90% on Rotten Tomatoes (as of this posting). … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Expensive ‘Valerian’ To Lose To ‘Dunkirk’ ‘War’ ‘Trip’
So the question is, will Spider-Man break 100M? He has managed to do that twice, with both Spider-Man and Spider-Man 3 (the Raimi era movies) making over 100M. The last Spidey solo effort, Amazing Spider-Man 2 opened to 91M, and … Continue reading Box Office Projections: How Amazing Will ‘Homecoming’ Be?
Basically on the first (or second, if I’m lazy) of every month, I take a look back three months at the films that have basically already made their lasting impact on the box office. These films have typically already fallen … Continue reading April Releases: How’d They Do?
Not really. I just mean that Despicable Me 3 is going to run this 4th of July Super-Long Weekend. It’s weird to have the 4th of July on a Tuesday, because then the question is, do you predict a 5-Day … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: Tuesday Is A ‘Despicable’ Day
As we’ve already seen this summer, people no longer give two fucks about anything. All they seem to care about are Guardians, Wonder Woman, and Tupac. Most sequels have been opening below their predecessor, with Cars 3 and Alien Covenant … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Transformers’ To Set A Series Low
Well, another unexpected series of flops this summer. I honestly don’t know what’s going on this summer with moviegoers. So far every comedy and every horror film has disappointed. Are we just tired of these genres? At this point, I’m … Continue reading Friday Box Office: ‘All Eyez’ on Tupac Biopic Not ’47 Meters’ or ‘Rough Night’
Yes. Disney/Pixar’s Cars 3 will run right over Wonder Woman. Tom Cruise couldn’t do it, even though he runs in all his films, but Cars will manage the feat. The first Cars opened to 60M and finished with 244M, with … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Cars’ Will Run Over ‘Wonder Woman’
I had kinda projected that The Mummy was going to be a slight disappointment for Universal, and now I’m certain it will be. Wonder Woman’s opening, even if it dropped a lot, would still give it a hearty second weekend. … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘The Mummy’ Will Fall To ‘Wonder Woman’
May was not a very nice month to me. It was a mean mean month. No, seriously, what the fuck happened to the movies in May? I tried to take this seriously, and everyone just said “Fuck May” except for … Continue reading Summer Box Office Predictions: How’d I Do In May?
