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

Split has managed to do even better than expected, showing that Shyamalan still has power at the box office. The film has also managed a B+ cinemascore, which is really good for a film of this genre. Of course, what … Continue reading Friday Box Office: ‘Split’ Explodes, ‘XXX3’ Just Does OK
I have a feeling both Split and XXX3 are going to beat their current projections. I’m seeing Split exploding on tracking, and if The Bye Bye Man can hit 15M with shit reviews, Split might even get 30M with good … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘XXX’ or ‘Split’?

Star Wars is looking to win this weekend, even with a hard hit coming out of the holidays. Hidden Figures is the only film that’s being set up as a potential breakout. It’s tracking in the high teens, but I … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Star Wars’ Vs ‘Blood Wars’
As 2016 winds down, I thought I’d take the opportunity to examine not just the hits, but the unexpected hits of the year. It’s easy to just repost the top 10 biggest films of the year, but these are my … Continue reading The Biggest Box Office Surprises and Flops Of The Year
