Ant-Man may have won the weekend, but it’s the lowest debut for a Marvel movie. There’s even talk that it might not hit 58M. It might fall short. Also, some people are going with the “sky is falling” routine for … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Ant-Man’ Lowest Marvel Debut, ‘Trainwreck’ Passes Expectations
Minions is another huge hit for Universal. Next weekend, they’re likely to keep the streak up with Trainwreck next weekend. They’ve already landed Fifty Shades Of Grey, Pitch Perfect 2, Furious 7, and Jurassic World this year. Now Minions, and … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Minions’ Is Way Ahead
JurassicWorld managed to top the box office again for the fourth straight week. The dino-might pic (sorry) became the 4th highest grossing film of all time, surpassing 2008’s The Dark Knight. Its next target is The Avengers, which is 3rd … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: Jurassic Keeps #1, No ‘Magic’ This Weekend
Magic Mike XXL is going to beat Terminator Genisys. Some people say the tracking is close, but Magic Mike XXL is tracking in women… and there isn’t anything else targeting women right now (except perhaps Spy, which isn’t doing a … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Magic’ At The Box Office? Or Time For A ‘Genisys’?
I guess people weren’t that excited for Ted 2. The sequel pulled in only 33M this weekend, down about 20M from the original a few years ago. It lost to Jurassic World, which became the fifth film of all time … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Jurassic’ Wins Third Frame, ‘Ted 2’ Disappoints
It’s possible that Jurassic World will remain on top for a third straight weekend. Ted 2 isn’t quite getting great reviews. The first one opened to 54M. I think we’ll be just below that, but enough below to take second … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Ted 2’ Set To Take On Emotions and Dinosaurs
Jurassic World technically did win the weekend, but it didn’t beat the second weekend record set by The Avengers (yet, anyway), and it failed to get to 400M in 10 days. It was Inside Out that had Pixar’s second largest … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Jurassic’ Wins, But ‘Inside’ Gets Some Records Too
Despite the fact that Jurassic World might become the fastest film to hit 400M, (it should do it in 10 days on Sunday), Inside Out is looking to be the 2nd highest Pixar debut of all time. Jurassic World is … Continue reading Friday Box Office: Despite ‘Jurassic’, ‘Inside Out’ Blasts Past Projections
Sadly, Inside Out won’t get the #1 opening it deserves this weekend, because Jurassic World is a box office juggernaut of unexpected proportions. After slipping past The Avengers to be the #1 opening weekend of All Time, Jurassic World is … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Jurassic’ Will Stomp You ‘Inside Out’
Jurassic World seems to have defied all odds and opened as the 2nd largest domestic debut in history, and the largest worldwide opening weekend. That’s pretty amazing. It’s honestly only a few million shy from The Avengers, and some insiders … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Jurassic’ Roars Into Record Territory
Jurassic World launched on Friday with an estimated 83M, which includes 18.5M from Thursday night previews. That’s a pretty amazing start to what is already a successful run. It already stands to outgross Jurassic Park 3, just on opening weekend … Continue reading Friday Box Office: ‘Jurassic World’ Explodes Past Expectations
Jurassic World is about to enter the marketplace, and it is basically the only new wide release this weekend. Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl is getting attention, but it’s just a limited release. Jurassic World is tracking above 100M, … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: How High Can ‘Jurassic’ Go?
Melissa McCarthy managed to open Spy above that of her last comedy effort Tammy, which opened last year to only 21.5M. On that same note, Insidious Chapter 3 was down from the opening weekend of Insidious Chapter 2. Insidious Chapter … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: Melissa McCarthy Grabs #1, ‘Chapter 3’ Ends Up In 3rd
Insidious Chapter 3 pulled out a win on Friday, but it won’t win the whole weekend. Melissa McCarthy’s Spy is a little under projections, but it’s not the kind of film that is typically frontloaded on a Friday. Insidious 3 … Continue reading Friday Box Office: ‘Insidious’ Pulls Ahead
Glowing reviews for Spy, and the idea that this is the kind of star vehicle we’ve been waiting to give Melissa McCarthy, should propel Spy to a solid #1 victory this weekend. San Andreas will dip into the #2 spot. … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Spy’ Will Suck The Air Out Of The ‘Entourage’
